Italia reveals the evolution of a photographic writing that seems to find its acme point. Taking away both the more documentary approach of his previous series (Ocean, Lowlands, Tractor Boys...) and his influences (Swedish photography is a heritage full of references), Martin Bogren has travelled through Italian cities without any real goal. It was a question of getting lost, of drawing a path with no predefined intention.

His walks are not only spatial but also mental and emotional. We understand that if Italia is a poetic journey, the series is also an initiatory journey. Here, there is no longer really a subject, but an intimist narrative that becomes the sensitive affirmation of the author's subjective visions.

All in shades of grey, the subtle and sensual prints reinforce the images of wanderings, dreamlike and sometimes disturbing and completely out of time. We follow him with fascination in these distractions, as if we were penetrating his dream, between striking portraits that seem to be apparitions (strange children, characters straight out of a tale, faces of madonnas that are so many celestial visions), streets nested with bright lights, landscapes bordering on abstraction.

With Italia, Martin Bogren takes a risk without calculation: that of letting go, that of getting lost, but above all that of surrendering himself, with delicacy and without ostentation. Italia is the quest for a beyond of photography, a way of being intense, a moving gesture to rely on the world.
