"Resonance(s)" april - june 2014 

Born in 1956 in in England. Lives and works in London, Barcelona and San Francisco.

Hannah Collins’ photographs can be felt as an image and as a kind of architecture; as two-dimensional surface and as sculpture. Her evocation of the tactile, sensual qualities of the material world associates with her use of scale to give her photographs a spatial, even phenomological quality that to paraphrase Rosalind Krauss, locates her work in an expanded field. Collins is concerned in revealing the archaeology of urban space, showing how the built environment shows the traces of the past and the intimations of a future. She also pictures the architecture of survival, documenting places created by those who have been displaced.
