Regina Hügli is a Swiss photographer based in Vienna and the initiator of SHARING WATER.
She studied art history and science of religion at the universities of Berne and Zurich and graduated in the field of photography at the university of art and design, Zurich, in 2002.

Since then, she has been working internationally for magazines, companies and institutions in the field of portraiture and reports. Her free, artistic work has been shown at various exhibitions.

In the last years water has been a central topic of her interest. She is fascinated both by water as a concrete matter, with its physical qualities and behaviour, and water, flow and circuits as metaphors for processes of consiousness and memory. On this, Regina Hügli has curated two interdisciplinary group-exhibitions and workshops (Reservoir, Rising-up-Flowing-down), and published a book containing scientific and artistic approaches on water and memory. 

SHARING WATER is her third and latest project on water, interdisciplinary again, but shifting the focus to an even more investigative and activist approach. To support her engagement in behalf of water, she has founded the association ONE BODY OF WATER in 2022.
