Cédrine Scheidig

1994*, Frankreich

Cédrine Scheidig (born 1994, France) is a French-Caribbean photographer based in Paris. Anchored between Europe and the Americas, she grew up in the suburban outskirts of Paris, a space which is a site of social and racial struggles, but also of flourishing diasporic lives and imaginaries. Drawing from her dual heritage, she attempts to make sense of the poetics and politics of the diasporic experience, exploring black geographies in the Caribbean and the periphery/centers of colonial western empires. A graduate from Ecole Nationale de la Photographie d’Arles (2021), her work has been presented in several group exhibitions, including Fotografia Europea Festival (2023, Italy), Rencontres Photographiques de Guyane (2023, Guyane), Encontros da Imagem (2023, Portugal), Plat(t)form Fotomuseum Winterthur (2022, Switzerland), Dior Prize w/ LUMA Foundation (2021, Arles), Rencontres internationales de la photographie (2021, Arles) and in a debut solo exhibition at Maison Européenne de la Photographie in Paris, in February 2023. She has been nominated among the British Journal Photography «Ones to Watch» (2022, UK),and shortlisted for the C/O Talent Award (2022, Germany),and the FOAM Paul Huf Award (2023, The Netherlands) among others. She has been recipient ofthe Dior Photography and Visual Arts Award for Young Talents in 2021 and the PhMuseum Women Photographers Grant in 2023. She has participated in residencies in French Guiana (2023), Centre de la Photographie Mougins (France, 2021), Spazzju Kreattiv (Malta, 2021).
