From March 7 through June 7, 2015 works by Hannah Collins, winner of the “SPECTRUM” International Prize for Photography 2015, will be on view at Sprengel Museum Hannover .
Following trails laid by her own biography, Hannah Collins, the daughter of a Polish Jew, has as her theme the plight of the homeless and the displaced. Her work marries the performative with the documentary in images of interiors and exteriors, situations and objects of great poetical strength, a strength that feeds on a dissolve of inward landscapes and outward realities.
The exhibition will be showing a selection of her works. The exhibition will be accompanied by the first German-language monograph to provide a comprehensive introduction to her complex photographic oeuvre.
Awarded by the Foundation of Lower Saxony, the “SPECTRUM” International Prize for Photography pays tribute to the significance of photography as a modern medium of artistic expression.
