  "I am not so fond of the idea of taking pictures. But I always return to it. The sense of getting close to something that has no words. This is why I continue. I balance between different worlds that I am trying to relate to. My pictures are memories. To have access to the feeling of solitude and vulnerability. To be allowed beyond sanity, far away from what is called reality." (Monika Macdonald)

The women portrayed in In Absence, have one thing in common: Their need to continue to live the solitary life and the intimate search for their own identity.

Monika Macdonald (b.1969) lives and works in Stockholm, Sweden.
