Because of the Corona restrictions and the uncertainty as to how many people may participate in our events, Sidsel Jakhelln Semb has graciously agreed to give us a 30-minute survey of her work as a professional photographer on ZOOM on February 1, in lieu of a physical Monthly Meeting.
She promises to have a real exhibition at Vinderen when we resume activities in the autumn.
Forum member and photographer Sidsel Jakheln Semb was born in Bodø, where her fascination for looking at the world through a camera lens was born.
After Examen Artium [A levels], she moved first to Oslo, and then in 1961 to Paris, where she spent one year, attending the Académie Julian, studying croquis-drawing techniques. Afterwards, she studied two years in Munich, where she was enrolled at the Bayerische Staatslehranstalt für Photographie.
Back in Oslo, she worked for four years in a fashion/advertising studio. In 1968, she established her own one-woman business.
Sidsel has travelled the world with her camera, photographing the High and Mighty, as well as everyday life.
In 2014, she handed over her vast personal archive to the National Library in Oslo. Many of the photographs have appeared in books and other types of publications. The transfer took several months to complete.
Sidsel is still very active and much in demand as a photographer.
DATE/TIME: Monday, February 1 at 18:45 (for 19:00)
