Mathilde Rietsch



Mathilde is a 24 year-old Swiss photographer. After graduating from the Art School of Lausanne (ECAL) in graphic design in June 2022, she decided to devote herself entirely to photography. Inspired by the light and colors of the mountains, she enjoys going on adventures to capture the beauty of the high peaks. Mathilde shares her work mostly on her famous instagram account @frihead. Social media allows her to connect with other mountain enthusiasts from around the world and be inspired by their work. For her, mountains offer this sense of power and at the same time smallness and insignificance. They are majestic, mesmerizing, frightening but paradoxically so attractive. Inspired by the romantic paintings of the 19th century, she strives to capture the sublime aspect of the peaks in her shots, and offers poetic and captivating alpine views to her viewers.
