“Silence is a whisper between life and death”
When and how memories vanish? How volatile is a memory? Do we vanish when the very last person who has met and talked to us, dies? Saarto has been inspired by Japanese Jisei (a.k.a. death) poetry and the burnt in shadow of a unidentified person at the stone steps of the Sumitomo Bank, Hiroshima.
"We do not believe in ghosts, nor in photographs. We believe in each other.”
New Ghosts is a photographic series by a father and his daughter, something they have been working on together since 2011, when Astrid was four. In this series moments of happiness, play, and escapism walk hand in hand with the darker tones of life. This photographic series has two authors: an adult and a child – both with their own voices as artists. In the photographs these voices are simultaneous, overlapping and completing each other.
