July 2020 interview - With Lola Blog  (with new photo stories, series samplers, a lockdown poem and a music video)


“I make images about the energy in encounters. The change in spaces. Situations of everyday extraordinary life. Mirrored realities and reimagined worlds. 

And in a city of windows and screens, I stay outside looking in. In these zones I glimpse a version of reality, create dreamscapes and adapt escapist fantasy scenarios. I find fragments of this age, and prisms to the next.” 

A M Hanson, artist photographer director
