So happy that I opened my 7th exhibition yesterday with a dear friend’s photos…Sören Sommelius, cultural editor at Helsingborgs Daily and TFF Associate since 20+ years back. 62 images making up “Between War and Peace”. It’s been such a delightful co-operation and it’s his first photo exhibition ever.
More than 75 friends, family and connoisseurs came, so positive, so appreciative.
Sören and I spoke for a few minutes two times during the opening – emphasizing the need for counter-images to all those of violence thrown at us all day long.
One of the guests, a professional photographer, wrote – “Unfortunately, today there are few photographers who place fellow human beings worldwide and their conditions in focus. That’s why Sören’s images hit me straight in my heart.”
Here is the poster! Do come! It is Vegagatan 25, Lund, Sweden – and we are open anytime but by appointment only on +46 – (0)738 – 52 52 00…my iPhone.
How do I prepare a new exhibtion? What does it take?What’s the process toward some kind of good presentation and how does it strengthen our social relations and friendship?
Not everyone, I assume, who visits a photo gallery – or any other gallery for that matter – has a firm idea about the work that goes into producing a good exhibition.
The process of planning and decision-making has many aspects – such as the artist choosing what to show and “killing a few darlings”, then comes processing the pictures, printing them, framing them, hanging them and producing a catalogue, discussing price setting etc. It’s quite a job with – as in this case – 62 pieces that make up my next show with photos by my friend Sören Sommelius.
