Doppelganger self portraits by Cornelia Hediger

Cornelia Hediger

New York photographer Cornelia Hediger was born in Zurich, Switzerland and educated at Rutgers University. Her works are exhibited internationally, and she is among the Photo District News‘ 30 New & Emerging Artists to Watch, 2009. Doppelgänger means "double walker", an apparition or the ghostly double of a living person. It is a sinister being whose presence foretells bad luck and even death. This idea of an ominous double became my muse and I started to immerse myself in the literature of the subject while creating images photographically. Writer Adam Harrison Levy describes her use of six distinct photographs assembled into one overall image and her exploration of personal space in the photographs.
