Ilsa Wynne-Hoelscher Kidd is a multi-award-winning Australian photographer and film director based in Melbourne and available worldwide.

With her life spent in the arts, witnessing analogue image-making by her photographer-publisher father in her early days and later studying film and theatre, Ilsa has built a deep foundation from which to create meaningful narratives through considered processes guided by her own instincts. Her artistic language developed from a young age immersing herself in practices across various fine art formats and education. Her deepest inspiration was born behind the lens and within a tactile and collaborative environment. Her approach to commercial work, spanning her skillset in photography, filmmaking, and creative direction, is aligned with her driving desire to create artful visual stories, and stylistically sits within her distinct aesthetic that is fluid across all her projects.

Ilsa’s work has been recognised, published and exhibited worldwide, and she currently has select works represented by and available through No Vacancy Gallery.

“The more life passes, the more curious I get. Just as the gentle balance within our world and inner constitutions present, the grittiest of my emotions tend to create my most articulate work. And by articulate, I simply mean concentrated expressionism ... raw, sensory, explorative, rule-bending, imperfect or bewildering, evocative, interpersonal, reflective. And in terms of grit I’m referring to my digestion of our human experience, that inner dwelling found between life’s symmetry, the questions, the urges, and at times the grief. Supporting my visual practice I celebrate community and conversation and like to draw upon like-minded collaboration and development. I am most inspired by human experience and mutual existence and deliver parts of myself throughout my work by the way in which I inject my voice and viewpoint within a visual landscape. I recognise my work is almost acting as my own personal blueprint.” 

I acknowledge and pay respect to the Wurundjeri people of the Kulin nation, the traditional custodians of the land on which I reside and practice. I acknowledge that sovereignty has never been ceded.
