    About The Work

    British artist Hannah Collins is known for her large unframed photographs that create immersive spatial experiences conveying the emotional and psychological aspects of spaces steeped in cultural and social history. This work was created alongside The Fertile Forest (2013-15), an installation of photographs with accompanying text, gathered during periods spent with Cofan and Inga tribal peoples in the Amazon basin. These plants serve a variety of purposes–from headache cures to maladies of the soul and in some cases enable hallucinogenic journeys on spiritual planes and “telepathic” communication with other individuals. The photographs are accompanied by wall texts narrating the physical and spiritual journeys made into the forest by tribal members as well as recounting the relationships formed by the artist whilst she was recording the plants.
