Batsceba Hardy - Loneliness Belongs to the photographer A foreigner in love with Berlin
Artist of irreality, she writes stories in images and tells visions in words. Anyway, “artist” of the Irreality, means: to be able to stand outside, beyond. Living perpetually in the interspaces, those that can be caught by the lens or by the words, having no borders, obligations. In many of her writings she speaks of invisibility, transparency. And also in her photographic works she speaks of empty and full. Of absence.
