Susanna Majuri

Inspired by the hyper-reality themes in Adam Hinton’s ‘Lovin’ it’ I came across the work of Finish Susanna Majuri. In her bio Majuri says “I throw myself into a fictive reality in the shootings.” and “I want to narrate feelings like in novels.”. Albeit Majuri is speaking of different novels to the ones I have been reading, but her inspiration from literature and aspiration of fictional reality is the same as mine. What also strikes me within Majuri’s work is the openness of the images. They are not forcing ideas upon us but once we dig past the beautiful aesthetics her work makes comments on nature, beauty and human ability.

In this video Susanna Majuri talks through some of her images and her use of water.

I have created a sub-blog for this project, the home page will be for sharing the photos, website links and more of their work. Then the links at the top will be for the project pictures and websites only.

The Interesting thing about this project, is that making the images is the starting point, rather than then end. The interactions and connections that happen after the images are taken are the basis of the project. It’s like working backwards for me, but I think it will be interesting.
