Classic, Color, Photobook
Finding, Transmitting, Receiving is the first major anthology of the work of internationally renowned artist, photographer and filmmaker Hannah Collins. This year, she has attracted acclaim as the winner of the Spectrum International Prize for Photography of the Foundation of Lower Saxony.

 

“Her projects include work in the former Eastern Bloc, with gypsy communities in Barcelona and in a remote village during a Russian winter, as well as other lengthy involvements in wide-ranging locations. All of these, through Collins’ work, create a broad canvas on which to contemplate the human condition.” (http://www.blackdogonline.com/art/finding,-transmitting,-receiving.html)

“Within photography, I used to love James Fenton’s work. I liked his wall pictures and things on shelves, because they were so plastic and so present. I liked Diane Arbus because she presented you with a different range of emotional possibilities. I never liked the idea that you would go into a gallery and see rows of pictures in frames on walls. So, no support, no frame, no anything – just a nail in the wall and that was it.” Hannah Collins (http://www.studiointernational.com/index.php/hannah-collins-interview-camden-arts-centre-noah-purifoy)
