NATTEN is a process of bereavement comprising all the emotions that surface with the loss of a loved one – but also acceptance, and respect for the essence of life – that the darkest gloom can exist side by side with ineffable beauty. Margot Wallard spent several years living in the Swedish province of Värmland and her NATTEN project took shape there during a period of deep sorrow after her brother's death.

“The environment there provided a frame for the ambiguous feelings that came over me. There was the desire to move on, to heal, but also to prolong my grieving - to sink even deeper into my unease.”says Wallard.

The pictures in the book are sorted into chapters, much like the mourning process that Wallard went through. Dead animals alterate with images of ice and seductive landscapes. Largely uninterested in nature before, she now chose to immerse herself in it – and find protection there. This is also the first time that Wallard has turned the camera on herself, “In nature, I found a way of getting over the shock and finding time and the peace to question what I had been through. I scrutinised what I had found in my expeditions -organic material, minerals and dead animals. By documenting reality in its most honest and pure form, I found a way to better understand life and death.”

Signed copy.

Some light bumping to spine, inside very fine.
