About Love Song
Hansson pictures show a stumbling fascination with the travesty of an everyday life. The vain attempts to catch time as it passes has always been a central aspect of tradition in photography. So have all efforts to give subjective vision a form.
As Hansson adds elements to the images the altered picture could easily disorient the viewer. Instead the pictures appear strangely familiar. Somehow, the pictures address the difficulties of seeing life as it is, in this very moment. As if the photos remind us of how we, in grand scheme of things, tend to miss out. Still Hanssons pictures sets both a subtle humoristic as well as a narrative tone.
Hansson dosen´t like to think of his work as collages, instead he thinks of them as mute songs. As referring to the dynamic structure of a song, the altered picture takes on new meaning. The apparent disorder comes to mind and the consistent theme becomes time rather than subject. As every track changes the direction of the album, so does each picture.
The series, consisting of both old and new pictures, followingi it´s own independent timeline. Almost as if the time passed can be traced in the in-betweens.
