JOHANNA WOLFE PHOTOGRAPHY
I use my camera as a means of confrontation to address complex topics such as innocence and youth or abandonment and decay.

Rather than telling a specific story, my work suggests potential narratives, opening up for interpretation the physical and psychic presence of what is photographically represented.

My work also deals with the material properties of a photograph: the reflection and transmission of light, and the composition of the film and paper that I use to make analog c-prints.

I am acutely aware of the pace at which time passes, and of how memory can be triggered in the transitions between sequential photographs.

For me, drama exists in the ache that comes from not understanding what I’m looking at, and I work to convey that sensation in a consciously romantic way.
