For the past week Mimi Svanberg @imagomimago, has been publishing three of her images each day to our Instagram feed and it’s been captivating. When viewing this body of work (which you can view in full in our Instagram feed, @theappwhisperer), I’ve felt a vulnerableness in Svanberg’s visual language, there’s a tactility in this body of work, illuminating the view, that time is in flux. Each image may suspend one moment but that’s the illusion. Her photos lose their boundaries, becoming a continuation of ritualised awareness. We’re drawn deeper into the present moment and then we’re allowed to transcend time, entering willingly, with want. Svanberg is a master of atmosphere, her models, seem marooned in their own thoughts to the point of torpor. Her autobiographical portraits reveal an intimate evocation of her lost and adrift soul. She has created a visual story, one that transgresses social codes and one that affirms, you never truly get away from yourself.
Huge thanks to Mimi Svanberg what a week it has been, thank you!
Today, we will announce a new Instagram TakeOver, again with a very talented mobile photographer, stand by for that!
