As intimate and treasured as carrying a few cherished photos in an old tin (and what a lovely tin it is!), that is how the photographs by Lina V Persson come across to me. Intimate, for the atmosphere they exude, and treasured, for they are (often) little moments in time, that once captured, can be saved and returned to for a lifetime and beyond…
Barcelona-based, but originally from Sweden, Lina Persson brings a special sensibility to her work that appeals to me, both in her black and white and colour work. This Friday sees the opening of a solo exhibit of Lina Persson‘s most recent work at Impossible Project Barcelona (remember them?) so I thought it was as good a time as any to share some of her beautiful images (34 of them, in fact, all in Polaroid format) with you, as well as this lovely video collage:
If you’re in town (Barcelona, that is), then I recommend you make sure to check out the exhibition, which will be on until December 11th. For more details (and many dreamy photographs), check out Lina’s website or head to Impossible Project Barcelona‘s site, here.
