’Always in the middle
of our bloodiest battles
you lay down your arms
like flowering mines
to conquer me home.’
- Audre Lorde
’The photographs amazon & achillia,
both parts of the photo series gladiatrice,
came to life on red wine and cheeks flushed
red in deep inspiration’, smiles Hannah.
’The flower gladiolus, or sword-lily,
has always meant something special to me.
To me they represent a strong backbone and integrity,
constantly budding; upward, forward..
with surprisingly silky flowers.’
’They are a tribute to my constant desire
to master the art of combining
softness and strength’, she concludes.
In amazon & achillia Hannah has worked
in photographic layers, combining that sword-lily
and portraits of her muse Lina Lindholm.
