When the Blackbird Sings: Jannica Honey
Jannica Honey is a Swedish-born photographer who moved to Edinburgh, Scotland after completing a BA in Anthropology and Criminology at Stockholm University in 1998. She has worked with high profile musicians, politicans and has contributed to prominent publications, won awards and also writes photo-essays.
Her project, ‘When the Blackbird Sings’, was previously exhibited at Arusha Gallery and received nationwide press-coverage in the United Kingdom.
It looks at the significance and symbolism of dusk, being primarily shot at twilight in order to to take on the blue hue of daylights last 15-20 minutes. It explores the ethereal quality of twilight, an in-between moment that does not belong to day or night.
By determining her shooting schedule on the cycles of the moon, an intrinsic feminine rhythm, Jannica has channeled the earth’s natural rhythms into her work and explored her own re-connection to identity, womanhood and femininity.
As well as this, Jannica has photographed stretch-marked stomachs and ageing female bodies that found spotlight on social media due to censorship and representation of the natural form.
