Cecilia Riis Kjeldsen (b. 1987) is a Fredrikstad-based photographer and artist who works in a genre cross between documentary and the staged. Curiosity about the human mind and the human place in society characterizes her work, seen through projects about time, change, grief, identity and relationships. She does not try to come up with explanations, but tries to reproduce a kind of experience by being human seen through different techniques and methods. She especially uses archive materials and manipulation actively in her work.

She graduated from Bilder Nordic School of Photography in the spring of 2015 with a specialization in narrative storytelling, and has exhibited at Kösk (2021), Fineart (2021), Matca Artspace (2020), Vasli Souza (2020), Collective Oslo Fashion Art Festival (2018), Preus Museum (2018), K4 (2017) and Cyan (2014, 2016, 2017 and 2018). She is represented at Fineart and the online gallery Oslonowhere, as well as in the backlog and online store at gallery Kösk and Soli Brug.
