Exclusively for Offspring Photo Meet ticket holders we proudly present Martin Bogren and his new work “Italia” (Max Strom 2016).
“…The images so complex of significance and yet so uncanny in their composition, pierce through your heart and take no prisoners. The viewer is swallowed, sucked in by your images. The window on my left, printer on my right and background sound of the radio cease to exist because all I can perceive is a spiritual world so distant and still strongly captivating. Image after image time and space bend to make room for me, for the viewer, pleasantly held in hostage until the last page!” – email exchange from Mimi Mollica to Martin
Monday 16th May 13:00 to 14:00 @ SPACE Studios – Portfolio Reviews Attendees only
