Photography exhibits 17 Oct 2018

My buddy Eugene was in Stockholm for business so we had a brew or two and saw some photography.

Robert Doisneau - Kulturhuset

A bit of a bait-and-switch - the poster prominently featured La Baiser de l’Hôtel de Ville but I suspect the arranging agency doesn’t have the rights to that nor his other more famous pictures. Instead we get some gentle views of the outskirts of Paris, many taken in the early 1940s during the German occupation.

Fotografiska

Noémie Goudal - Stations

Huge prints of photographic collages with a strong graphical aspect. Impressive work.

Paul Hansen/Åsa Sjöström - Hand to Hand

Earnest reportage about the need for clean water and effective antibiotics.

Fotografiska Talent 2018

A selection of young(ish) Swedish photographers. Some good work, but a lot of suburban introspection too.

Lars Tunbjörk - Tunbjörklandet – blicken från sidan

The highlight. Tunbjörk was Sweden’s Martin Parr and his garishly lit visions of the absurdities of Swedish life in the 90s are haunting, funny, and affecting.
