"Love, oh, love, I gotta tell you how I feel about you..." Screams of joy echoed around the office when we heard that the Gun Gallery will be showing new works by photographer Martina Hoogland Ivanow. We would so dearly like to have booked the next flight to Stockholm right away, but thanks to the web, we are able to present ‘Satellite’ right here on GoSee.
The images feature people, who live do not live door to door with us – they choose alternative societies. Martina Hoogland Ivanow chose dark and colourless tones for her portraits, which circumnavigates the way we see them – they are hardly there. ‘Satellite’ is a small glimpse into the world of the others.
The photographer was born in 1973 in Sweden and studied at the Parsons School of Design in Paris and New York. Her works have been published in The glossiest of magazines, including Another Magazine, Dazed & Confused and were exhibited at the V&A London or the Brandts Museet for Fotokunst in Denmark. She lives and works in Stockholm.
The Gun Gallery in Stockholm presents her dreamlike picture series until the 18th of November 2010. Whoever is lucky enough to reside in the Swedish capital at the moment, should not miss the experience! Actually, the Gun Gallery is one of the first in line when it comes to future trends in photography.
