Martina Hoogland Ivanow is well known and respected in the world of photographic art. Her work has been exhibited at The Barbican (London), Moderna Museet (Stockholm), Künstlerhaus Bethanien (Berlin) and Hermes Foundation (New York) among others. When she now transitions into moving images, it comes naturally as her poetic observations and eye for images and the story within them are equally relevant in 24 frames per second.
Born in 1973 she moved from her native Sweden at the age of 18 to study photography in Paris and later New York. After an early breakthrough in the mid 90’s, living in London with many commercial commissions, she has spent the last 13 years focusing on her artwork and exhibitions. In 2010 she received an IASPIS grant and a one-year residency in Kunstlerhaus Bethanien, Berlin and a Scanpix photo prize for her project “Satellite.” She has published 3 books; Far too Close, SteidlMACK in 2010, Speedway, 2013 and Satellite + Circular wait + Second nature , Livrasion books together with Art and Theory Publishing, 2015.
