Fotografiska, July 2019

Mandy Barker - Sea of Artifacts

An earnest exploration of plastic in seas and waterways. For some reason this exhibit was in a room even more dimly lit than usual at Fotografiska - and that’s saying something. Sadly nothing that’s not been said or done many times before.

Scarlett Hooft Graafland - Vanishing Traces

This grew on me. Staged images in different environments with surreal components (yet of course it’s all “analog” and there’s no manipulation). Impressive for the visuals and conceptions alone.

Vincent Peters - Light Within

Peters photographs our modern Hollywood idols like they where 1940s Hollywood idols.

James Nachtwey - Memoria

A visual onslaught of images from famines, wars, catastrophes and field hospitals. Almost unbearable in its intensity. I became numb after just a few walls. It depresses me that future epigones will have no shortage of similar subjects, all without having to travel that far.
