Emigrant Memoir

Following-up to Linda Maria Thompson’s 2016 exhibition and monograph “In Place of Memory”, this new exhibition is the continuation of an ongoing investigation of the visualization of the migrant experience past and present; the collective and personal. Channeling her own, as well as collective Swedish and American migration histories of longing, love and loss, with “Emigrant Memoir” photographer Linda Maria Thompson explores the state of being that is in-between. Her site-responsive approach takes us to the often-romanticized American West, to the environs of her current home in Ångermanland.

Formally trained as a photojournalist, Thompson’s practice is in itself in migration; embracing subjectivity and a variety of materials and techniques, including antique analog photographic processes, plant-based emulsions, screen-capture, digital photography of archival film, images and texts.
