January 11, 2020 – February 29, 2020
Martina Hoogland Ivanov’s art deals with the representation of transparency. The photographs the artist shows in the Early Reading photo book are images of tactile stimulation and touch.

Experiences like these can be poetic or touching.

It entices the flowers–
the storm–but though the garden’s white,
it is not snow,
and what it is that’s scattering
are, in fact, the years of my life!
