Bio

Minnie Weisz is a Photographic Artist, lives and works in London.

Memory and the passage of time are key themes to my work. A way to observe and document changing landscapes through photography and rooms turned into memory zones which can transform and transcend a sense of place and time.

Working with the process of analogue photography, moving image.
