Laura Henno


“Through staged photographs, Laura Henno composes images that make palpable the extreme tension between her characters and external reality. They are most often set in landscapes made unreal by a masterful control of light, which adds to their fictional dimension. The odd relationship between the characters and the space that surrounds them, the resulting indeterminacy, places the viewer in an uncomfortable position between fascination and a sense of intrusion.” In the exhibition Summer Crossing, the photographs echo each in other in a slowed down time, and the lonely characters give way to group scenes . “In her new work, Laura Henno photographs migrants, evoking the colonial history of Réunion and its displaced peoples. The past and the present overlap in photographs that preserve a certain timelessness and refer to wider geopolitics.”
