(…)

Presence in Absence is a series of new photographs and video-based work by the Dutch photographer Judith Quax, in which she continues to explore African displacement and clandestine migration to the West.

Quax emphasizes how photographs travel and how family albums become the migrant’s deeply personal possessions, in the process becoming a source of longing for families left behind, irretrievable times and lost intimate spaces.
