Due to lockdown restrictions delaying installation of this exhibition, Hiding From Baba Yaga will now open on 20 February.
Magnum photographer Nanna Heitmann presents her award-winning documentary series, Hiding From Baba Yaga, for the first time in Australia. In this series, Heitmann, who has worked on photojournalism assignments for The New York Times, TIME Magazine, The Washington Post and Stern Magazine, explores the people and landscape of the Yenisei river. The river has long been home for nomadic peoples who were outcast by mainstream society or escaping persecution, and still remains a place for displaced peoples. Photographing the worlds of loners, outsiders and dreamers that live along the river, Heitmann’s work explores the mysticism surrounding the area, while revealing truths of life on the Yenisei.
