Passing through

Pernille Koldbech Fich likes Introducing Viola to a family story or a portrait of a generation: the subjects are all related, although the sense of isolation within the pictures creates an ambiguity around this. They could represent a mental or shared memory within the larger idea of the family – for example, the children could be a memory the adults have of their own childhood. The allure of these photographs however lies in the sheer magnetism of the figures and the part the viewer plays in trying to unfold their story.
