Nanna Heitmann is a photographer, documentalist and member of Magnum Photos living in Russia and Germany. In spring, she photographed inside the red zone of a hospital in Moscow, where healthcare workers were fighting to save the lives of people struck down by the coronavirus. The resulting project, entitled “Just Stand and Look”, was featured on takiedela.ru, and was also added to Manege’s exhibition “As They See Us. A Portrait of Russia by the Magnum Agency”.
On 17 July Nanna will join us for an online discussion. We’ll be covering her work in Russia, her latest project, and her multiple award-winning series “Hiding from Baba Yaga”. Nanna will talk about her experience with Magnum Photos, and how a young photographer can become a member of the legendary agency. You will also be able to put forward your questions.
Also taking part in the event will be Andrey Polikanov, director of takiedela.ru. It will be moderated by curator, teacher and director of the Fotografika Academy Ekaterina Bogachevskaya.
The public talk – which will be held as a Zoom conference – is free to join. Advance registration is required, and you will also need to have downloaded the Zoom app. An hour before the event is scheduled to begin you will be sent a link to the email address provided during registration, which will allow you to join the conference.
The event forms part of Manege’s complementary programme, and is taking place with the support of the Fotografika Academy of Documentary and Art Photography.
Ingosstrakh is the exhibition’s general partner.
