SHORT STORIES FROM AN AUTONOMOUS SPACE residency this month presents young Swedish photographer Kajsa Johansson with her Considering Corners series. It will be interesting to see how the West End responds to the very poetic works whilst presenting views which are not commonly understood as idyllic. This series is definitely a must in our collection to engage a discussion towards contemporary photography with a wider audience.
Considering Corners is a series of photographs depicting scenes from Hackney that I believe most people overlook or rarely notice. They are glimpses of the urban landscape showing places and objects that seem misplaced or forgotten and one might start to wonder why they are there or where they came from. These sites connect the dots between places of higher value in the cityscape and are quiet little worlds of their own to contemplate. With their subtle humour they become rare treasures to get lost in.
