Homeless Angel? is a series of black and white art photos with documentary elements. With these photos of a confused angels journey, I explores questions about identity and belonging.
The creation of the angel portraits started in 2017 when I, Anna, and Toni Galant, who portrays the angel, travelled around in Skåne, Sweden. The angel has shown up in many different places: in the Lund Cathedral, the woods, at the fire brigades, at a farm, at a quarry, a market in Malmö, a car junk yard, with a motorcycle gang, at train stations, by the Öresund Bridge and more. People we met along the way had a great impact on the process.
Every photo is a little fragment from the angels journey. Between these fragments there are gaps that gives the observer a chance to be a co-creator. With these pictures I want to invite the audience to create their own reflections and answers.
