Daughter of a Dutch father and a Macedonian mother, Ilse Frech grew up in Amsterdam. She studied photography at the Royal Academy of Fine Arts in The Hague and at the Academy St. Joost in Breda.

Her double origin leads naturally to questions about cultural differences and migration issues, themes that she will develop in her photographs and her videos.

I AM - PARADOX IDENTITY

During three years, Ilse Frech followed, step by step the everyday life of young Muslim women, torn between their family context, often religious and their aspirations for a femininity and a life choice influenced by contemporary Western culture. As a result of this work, the photographic documentary I am - Paradox Indentity (2008) was born.


In the setting of their apartments and the landscape of their French suburbs, the photographer’s first aim was to establish a real complicity with these young women in search of identity. The composition and aesthetics of these photographs offer a subtle look on intimacy.

 

This photographic project has also been the subject of a video portrait of five women called I Am. My Islam. My France (52'), and a publication by Episode Publishers.

I Am - Paradox Identity, at Quai1 is the first exhibition of this artist in Switzerland.

In 2011, Ilse Frech participated in the 8th Vevey International Photo Award, organized by the Festival Images.
