Margot Wallard’s photographic ouvre is a force to be reckoned with. In her remarkable and emotional series Natten, Margot records and expresses her surroundings in all of their unadulterated and organic purity. Punctuating shots of vegetal and mineral matter and decaying animals with long-exposure self-portaiture, her photographs provide her with an immersive way to come to grips with – and articulate – reality. Margot is deeply curious about memory and its transmission, transformation and its tendency towards fantasy; how do we really distinguish between remembering and fantasising? Extra Extra no. 19 is graced with a portfolio of Margot’s captivating photographs, where her cinematic use of light and shadow is simultaneously unnerving and alluringly inviting.
