Elke Seeger is Professor of photography at the Folkwang University of the Arts in Essen, Germany. Her subject area encompasses many aspects and expressions of the photographic medium. In addition to teaching artistic practice, Elke Seeger engages students in theoretical discussions on the image as such. The process of pictorial invention is tied closely to a reflective approach to theory of photography. Creative work and theoretical analysis thus find a new interconnection and enrich, inspire and complete one another.
