Siw Amina Bech
Bech has a background as scenographer, and her photography has frequently related to a scenographic approach. Her portfolio consists of both straight and processed photography. She aims to use the means of set and stage production to modulate communication - whether in exhibition projects or performance. She often merges traditional photographic techniques, staged sets and digital methods, combining multiple images and/or other media. Since 2010 Bechs projects has mainly focused towards political and humanitarian issues, combining political engagement with photography based projects.
In 2011 she also established the project site Art & Social Practice, where art & design is beeing used to raise awareness on humanitarian challenging issues.These projects emphasize various aspects of delivery, and moves freely between art, social practice, humanitarian work & entrepreneurship.
