Hold Me 'Till I Go

    Angelika Kollin

This portrait of 75 year old Katinka Hall was taken in early 2020 between her chemotherapy treatments. It was time of great challenges, and mostly discovery of new strength and faith, underneath daily despair and desire to live, in accepting the most predictable outcome. In February 2021 Katinka passed away.

Angelika Kollin is a 44 year old Estonian photographer currently based in Tampa, Florida. She is self-taught and engages with her passion for photography and art as a tool of exploration of interhuman connections, intimacy, and/or the absence of such. Angelika has spent the last 8 years living in African countries (Ghana, Namibia, South Africa), where she explored the same topic in a variety of different cultures and economic conditions. More and more it strengthens her belief that despite many circumstances in life, the one thing that shapes us the most is our relationship with our parents.
