MAYFLY (Own publisher 2020)
Limited Edition: The book is special bound and printed in 500 numbered copies.
Editing & design: Martina Holmberg & Theodor Jikander

"In 2012, Martina Holmberg’s book and exhibition Fade to Black put a poetic tone to an old Polaroid technique gone awry during production.
(...The photographs in this book, Mayfly, are of course an equally beautiful continuation of this theme. The aura of the images returns as a key component. The emulsion flaws and the subdued color tones veering toward red characterize many of them. Our reading of them shifts to a recognition of those family photo albums from the 1950s and 60s that we all know and love – those albums that are slowly, in declining color scales, evaporating from so many homes all over the globe. The images thus also become apt metaphors for how our own human memories, sooner or later, to a greater or lesser degree, fade or change."

HANSEMAN (Lux Publishing 2016)
Limited Edition: The book is special bound and printed in 100 numbered copies.

Hanseman is my second photo book. I got the idea to make the book after my father became seriously ill and was hospitalized for weeks hovering between life and dead. When he became better I started to document him partly becuse I wanted to preserve the memorys of him in pictures, but the most important for me was to give him the book as a declaration of my love. To make the book was also important cause I had to process my feelings about life and death. 

FADE TO BLACK (Lux Publishing 2012)
Limited Edition: The book is special bound and printed in 500 numbered copies. 
Editing & design: Theodor Jikander (LUX)

"A mistake late in the production of the soon to be closed factory results in a batch of Polaroid film with strange and unexpected characteristics. The small batch is saved from destruction by someone who understands the interesting nature of the mistake and properties of the film. 

The photographer Martina Holmberg gets hold of a pack and falls in love with the films unpredictable and chaotic expression. She buys as much of it as remains to be bought and with it she creates a painterly and atmospheric world of brief moments. Her work culminates in an exhibition and monograph uncommon in Swedish photography."
