About Cecile Wetzels
Born in 1968 I was considered gifted for painting and I received my training as a visual artist after high school in the Netherlands (my tutor for photography was LJAD Creyghton). At the same time I wished very much to develop my mathematical skills and get a better informed opinion about (analyzing) society. After completing my PhD in population and gender economics I worked as an academic in different countries for almost 25 years, with great pleasure! But the last ten years while living between Amsterdam and Zürich I have spent more and more time thinking about photography and my role in it. Could I make a contribution to photography beyond the private sphere?
Last year I chose intuitively photographer Theo Bosboom to help me with the projects, which I will now complete one by one. I'll present my projects on my website: www.cecilewetzels.com
