(I co-created this project with Olivia Arthur, Claire Martin and Lurdes R. Basoli).
Danube Revisited: The Inge Morath Truck Project, was photographic road trip and traveling exhibition celebrating the impact of women on the field documentary photography. As Magnum Photos' first female photographer, Morath was invested in increasing the female presence in her male-dominated field.
A contemporary legacy project, Danube Revisited explores Morath's significance as a pioneer of women's photographic history by visualizing her influence on contemporary female practitioners. Eight (female) winners of the Inge Morath Award converted a truck into a mobile gallery, retraced Morath's footsteps along the Danube, and expanded her project by producing new imagery.
We followed the flow of the Danube river from its source in the Black Forest to its outlet into the Black Sea.
34 days, 2800 kilometers, 19 cities.
Espacio Fundacion Telefonica produced a documentary film about our journey.
Our collective work is currently a traveling exhibition, which launched in 2016 at PhotoEspana, Madrid.
It has since been shown at Fotografie Fourm Frankfort, Germany, and the Upper Austrian Museum of Contemporary Art. It will continue its tour to institutions along the Danube in 2019.
My project: Carrying History
Over the past 30 years, the Danube region has seen war, sanctions, invasions, occupations, and communist rule. This work examines how ordinary people carry their complex histories, and explores the environment as a vessel for memory.
