Interview: Margaret Mann

Interviews | March 1, 2021

As a fine art photographer, I am captivated by form and texture which support the themes of my work. Many of my photographs have been taken with film and handled by me in a darkroom with the use of salts to give some hint of colour to black and white images. This has given my African images a sense of the light I found during my travels in Africa. The resulting images convey an understanding of my experience from a feminine perspective: I became very aware of the birth of humanity, the first steps of mankind on the very land I walked upon Read more

INTERVIEW: GUILLAUME THUNIS

Interviews | February 20, 2021

Through my drawings I seek to express my relation to the world, and the quest for meaning that flows from it. When I draw, I reinvent my relationship with time. I often launch myself into creations that require extreme patience. I then practice a meditative drawing and lose the notion of time, or on the contrary, I regain control of it. It is an alternation of moments where I am fully awake and periods during which I am totally off-centered of myself. Yet, I draw the time that passes by. Read more

INTERVIEW: LAWRENCE KWAKYE

Interviews | February 15, 2021
