Stéphanie Gygax – Info Dessin

About

Stéphanie Gygax is a Swiss-born photographer currently living in Zurich. She holds a degree from the School of Applied Arts in Vevey and won the Swiss Design Award with her graduation project in 2001. She completed a further education programme in 2015 and obtained a Certificate of Advanced Studies in Research and Art Knowledge at Zurich University of the Arts. She has worked for numerous Swiss and international magazines and is now focusing on cultural commissions. Her artistic projects, which combine an offbeat approach to documentary with an intimate and distinctive gaze, were featured in a number of artspaces, museums and book fairs. Producing zines as well as books and collaborating closely with various independent publishers, she is very involved in the editing process and occasionally works as a photo editor. A lecturer at Geneva University of Art and Design since 2003, she developed a curriculum which explores the relationship between photography and printed matter.
