In her book 26.01.18 photographic artist Louise Bøgelund Saugmann investigates breathing with the trees. As an asthmatic child she was confined to her bed for days unable to breathe properly. Ever since, Bøgelund Saugmann has had an urge to create photographic spaces, where there is room to breathe - both concretely and in a metaphorical sense. Bøgelund Saugmann visited the same forest in the Copenhagen outskirts (Pinseskoven) for six years, and with every visit she would make 12 photographs of the same scene with trees, sitting in the same position on a rock with her medium format camera. She would then use the analogue photographic process of layering one image upon another as her method for collecting the passage of time, imagining that each individual, layered photographic piece was a breath from the forest.
In the world we live in today, when everything often goes very fast, 26.01.18 offers a welcomed respite for you to slow down and breathe with the trees.
