Biography

Meanwhile at Gallery of Photography Ireland, the exhibition Delta by Hannah Modigh has reopened for one week only, from 22 – 31 July. The exhibition is free but booking is essential, so check the gallery’s website below for more details.

Hannah Modigh is recognised as one of Sweden's leading photographers. Her sensitive, poetic projects and photobooks, often centred on crisis-ridden areas in the USA, such as small towns plagued by drugs in the Appalachian Mountains (Hillbilly Heroin, Honey) and impoverished areas of Louisiana (Hurricane Season), as well as portraits of Swedish youths in search of their identity (Milky Way), have attracted significant international attention.

Presenting an extensive series of small-format, intimate photographs, Delta is Modigh’s first solo show in Ireland, and the second exhibition in our Contemporary Women's Practice season, celebrating leading women photographers at work today. Although perhaps best known for immersing herself in unfamiliar situations, with this series Modigh has turned instead to her immediate surroundings, in a search for traces representing the presence of an absence. The result is a series of emotionally charged photographic encounters, looking to Modigh’s own experiences, her family, and the everyday. Delta is extremely personal, but still touches on universal human experiences of birth, sexuality and death.
