Minnie Weisz is a Photographic Artist based in the UK.
Mapping memory within the cityscape, at moments between spaces, and the city. Landscapes imbued with shifting traces of time combine with layers of the imagination. Spaces are re-imagined, as sensory memory falls into dreamscapes where rooms are sometimes fashioned as camera obscuras, like a key opening up a conversation between interior and exterior worlds, between the past and present. A metaphor for human connection, love, loss and desire. Between places, folk-lore and myths are investigated.
My photographic practice is rooted in analogue photography and film, and moving image alongside a documentary approach to visual storytelling.
Searching for the soul of a building, light shines in, signifying hope, breathing life back in, a re-birth, metaphorically speaking.
