"Faces and Figures: Contemporary Photography in Scandinavia"
2001-04-20 until 2001-06-10
Scandinavia House
New York, NY, USA United States of America

This exhibition comprises approximately fifty photographic works by twelve photographers from all five Nordic countries. The works, in both black-and-white and color, touch upon such psychological themes as identity and disguise, inner life versus outer appearance, and the role of history in the life of the modern individual. The exhibition includes work by both established and emerging artists, and represents a broad spectrum of photographic practices, ranging from photojournalism and documentary work to ironic social critique, personal expression, and lyrical art photography. Many of the artists are unknown or little-known outside their home countries, and the work they have produced deserves broader recognition.

The photographers represented in the exhibition are Krass Clement and Tina Sondergaard, from Denmark; Spessi, Ragnar Axelsson (Rax), and Einar Falur Ingolfsson, from Iceland; Jorma Puranen and Esko Mannikko, from Finland; Kare Kivijarvi and Jim Bengston, from Norway; and Christer Stromholm, Sune Jonsson, and Lars Tunbjork, from Sweden.

The exhibition is organized by 0ivind Storm Bjerke, director of the Norsk Museum for Fotografi-Preus Fotomuseum, in Horten, Norway, and Ann Sass, director of cultural programs and chief curator, Scandinavia House. A publication, including essays by Mr. Bjerke and Ms. Sass, biographies and bibliographies on each artist, and reproductions in color and black-and-white, accompanies the exhibition.
