Zaida Kersten

Born in 1976 - Spain


Zaida Kersten is a Spanish photographer born in 1976, from German and Mexican origins. She currently lives and works between Paris, Barcelona and Oaxaca.

Zaida Kersten started studying Journalism at the Autonomous University of Barcelona. After she finished her studies, she started working very fast in the agency France Presse as a Journalist. During these early years of her professional life, Zaida continued taking photography courses and making internships in order to perfection her technique.

She practiced journalism and photography professionally, but very soon Zaida decided to make a choice and to consecrate completely to her photographic practice in order to start creating new projects.

Following this decision Zaida Kersten left Paris to live in a cabin without any modern comfort located in the Island of Lenje, Finland. The purpose of this was to share with the viewer, her daily life in these conditions thanks to a collection of photographs, that seem like a personal diary.
