About Fryd Frydendahl

Fryd Frydendahl lives in New York where she works within the field of photography and video. Frydendahl was born on the west coast of Denmark in 1984, graduated from Fatamorgana, the Danish school of art photography, in 2006, and received an Advanced Certificate from The International Center of Photography in General Studies in 2009. Besides her individual practice she is also a part of the performance group Birds production, Bird Mitsudahl, a collaboration with the Japanese artist Megumi Tomomitsu. Her first book, Familiealbum, was published by the Danish Publishing house Nyt Nordisk Forlag in 2007.

Her second book, The Summer of Yes, was published in collaboration with Nyt Nordisk Forlag in 2012. She is the recipient of grants from Fogtdahls Rejsestipendie, The Henry Margolis Foundation, and Josephine Lyons Merit Scholarship. She was a part of the 2011 CCNY fellowship program and The Art Hvide Sande residency. Visit her website at www.frydfrydendahl.com.

Fryd Frydendahl says:
“I am drawn by a powerful desire to know things. My drive is to make some sort of sense of the whole. I look at my own patterns and the attraction to what I choose to photograph, I wonder about figures that appear in more than one picture, themes that I repeat and sentimental focuses that makes the imagery seem hunting. It is an obsession with pointing at something, and in that way having the power of providing significance.”



CCNY is celebrating over 125 years serving the photographic and art community through this and upcoming exhibitions, lectures, and special events. For more information, contact John Stanley at info@cameraclubny.org or by phone at 212–260–9927.
