Frederike Helwig was born in 1968 in Hamburg, Germany. She came to London in the early 1990s and started her 20 year editorial and commercial career with magazines such as i-D and The Face. She is currently working on a series of personal projects that were made during her time as an editorial photographer, exploring social documentary, portraiture and still life. Manifesting in publications, the first, Propaganda was self-published in 2016 and the second, Rundgang was published by Here Press in 2017. Most recent is Kriegskinder, a long-term project that started in 2014, which explores identity and personal history of people who grew up in post war Germany.
