With her analogue camera, using medium format film, Hudig is in search of the perfect accident, the perfect imperfection in an image. In Hudig´s photographs the imperfections are both magical and mysterious. For Hudig the “accidents” along the route and in her images are a metaphor for life.
Emilie Hudig (1973) was born in the Netherlands but grew up in an international community in Brussels, Belgium. Still today she is very much internationally orientated. In her work she engages with social issues in a multi layered way, focusing on the intensity and relativity which is expressed through the variation of her work in a broad professional context.
She studied Cultural Anthropology and Media and Culture at Amsterdam University and documentary and portrait photography at the Photo Academy in Amsterdam. After graduating, Hudig was selected for Reflexions Masterclass through which she did residencies at several institutions in Europe.
In 2009 her book Controle / In Control about her treatment for Hodgkin’s disease was awarded the prestigious Zilveren Camera, photo story of the year. The project was also exhibited in FOAM3h. In 2012 her project on Dutch nobility Without Title was exhibited in Museum van Loon, Amsterdam.
