Colombian photographer Juliana Gómez Quijano’s (also known as Juno) interest lies in research and reflection on scientific knowledge. In her project ‘The Two Strands’ (‘Las Dos Hebras’), she builds a bridge between the world of science and her personal experiences by investigating the genetic and emotional bond that unites her with her twin sister. By way of photographic explorations of the representation of DNA, she takes us on a journey through the molecular and symbolic relationship that connects everyone.
Simon Lehner (b. 1996, Austria) gave shape to his ongoing series ‘The mind is a voice, the voice is blind’ in late 2019, a year before he was diagnosed with complex post-traumatic stress disorder (C-PTSD). In essence, the series studies the cognitive dialogue at play between memories and the conscious, and explores how we process, and grasp lived experiences through photography.
