In Absence

@ Macdonald, Monika

Publisher's presentation:

"« I am not so fond of the idea of taking pictures. But I always return to it. The sense of getting close to something that has no words. This is why I continue. I balance between different worlds that I am trying to relate to. My pictures are memories. To have access to the feeling of solitude and vulnerability. To be allowed beyond sanity, far away from what is called reality. »

              -- Monika Macdonald

The women portrayed in In Absence all have one thing in common: their solitary search for belonging – to something or someone. This autobiographical account, which is also a psychological and intimate reflection, runs like a common thread throughout the images. The women are likeminded in their hesitation and uncertainty; in their longing, or yearning for some form of love.

In Absence emanates from motherhood – without necessarily being set in a world of mothering."
