Episode 358: Hannah Modigh returns for our third episode to speak about her most recent books, Delta and The Archive of Longing, published by Fotohof. With this episode, we dive into Hannah’s background in social work which helps to place context around her photographic work through Archive of Longing, a series made at a female shelter in Stockholm called Klaragården. It was a beautiful conversation and cements Hannah as a concerned voice in contemporary photography. Please Tune In.
“The women at Klaragården know something about losing things, they know what longing is. Between their entry into the world and their ending up in front of Modigh’s analogue medium format camera their destinies have unfolded and shaped them. The details of these lives are not known, but now we get to see their faces, their gaze, their posture, their jewellery, tattoos, clothing and accessories and the energy their respective portraits provide. They have come from somewhere and are going somewhere and Modigh has harvested a version of them from the river of time.”
From Jenny Maria Nilsson’s text for the book Archive of longing
