During the talk, Margaret Lansink will discuss her series Concept of Ma and give some insight into the traditional and alternative printing techniques that she works with, silver gelatin printing and Liquid Light.
Concept of Ma speaks about life as a place of vulnerability and about recognising reality as a complex ecosystem of possibilities. The photographer opposes the Western approach to life with its fixed boundaries and defined edges to the more open, intuitive take on the matter.
This project was created at the end of 2019, after Lansink’s award-winning residency at Benrido’s Collotype Atelier in Kyoto. She stayed at the Lake Kussharo – home grounds for the Ainu people, an indigenous tribe of Japan – and this is where the project was born. Moved by the naked beauty of the local landscape, the photographer connected to the natively Japanese concept of ‘Ma’, and this photographic series emerged from that.
