Born in Donaueschingen situated at the eastern edge of the Black Forest, Edith Held loves spontaneity, aesthetics and motion. Her career training as photo lab technician and afterwards study of photography in Vienna, Paris and Berlin, where she is living and working since 1995, enable her to work now as a high-class photographer. Although since early days she prefers black and white photos she likes to show with her work the ease of life and how colorful it is.
‘I’m inspired by everything’ as she would say. Her ideas develop during her work and influence her current productions. Edith Held says that superficiality can be as recreating as deepness, in the end if you like a visual or not isn’t influenced by either the one or the other.
