Helga Härenstam: In waiting for what is to come

33,50

The author inherits a photo album after her grandmother, from her upbringing at Mnene mission station in former Rhodesia almost 100 years ago. Helga opens the album, reads the note ”In waiting for what is to come” and finds that almost half of the photos in the album are missing. She decides to travel to the Mnene ”in order to end the album in some way”.
In the book, designed as grandmother’s album, the old pictures meet Helga’s new. The images are combined with notes and quotes – a before and after filtered by chance, associations, conceptions and fantasies.
In waiting for what is to come circles round memory, photography, family, power, religion and colonialism.
