About Dhyana Fritsche

 
 
  • Biography

    Dhyana is a photographer/printmaker and has worked for corporations and for the press from her studio in Cologne, Germany. She re-located to Wales and completed a MA degree in Documentary Photography in Newport and the Postgraduate Certificate in Education. She has lectured in photography in Germany and Wales and now concentrates on her own work. Dhyana has had work exhibited in Germany, Spain and the U.K. and has been sort after by companies as well as private collectors.

    She has been using photography as a sole medium but has introduced printmaking into her artistic vocabulary which is enabling her to further express her way of seeing. She is currently a member of Swansea Print Workshop and exhibits with them in group exhibitions.

    Dhyana has commissioned work hanging in the National Pool Swansea and has contributed photographs to organisations in order to protect the local landscape of Mynydd y Gwair and other areas from indiscriminate industrialisation. 

    Recently she had works in mixed exhibitions at Swansea Open Glynn Vivian Art Gallery, MOMA Wales Machynlleth, Off the Wall Gallery Llandaff, Tower Gallery Crickhowell, The White Room Gallery Swansea Theatre, Fringe Art Bath and Photoalicante International Photography Festival, Spain. Dhyana was selected as one of the 40 best photographers who submitted to the Espy International Photography award and her work was screened at the Elysium Gallery Swansea.
