Wadström Tönnheim Gallery presents the group exhibition Contrasts, during Skanör Falsterbo Art Days May 5 to 8, consisting of images from three experienced photographers. All with their own way to observe and capture life and its things, dead as alive, in the ephemeral moment of clarity. Vernissage is on 5 May at. 12-17, the exhibition will run until 29/5.
– In fact, 4th Street, which is part of a series of five photos that I call the City Canyon, my idea was to show The City of Los Angeles with empty streets, no cars, and people. And in this way obtain a different and a more graphical view of buildings and streets that you normally can’t experience in LA. I photographed the images an early morning, during Memorial Day weekend, when the downtown was empty of both cars and people. Soccer stadium is also part of a series of pictures where I show LA with illuminated buildings in the early evening light from a bird’s perspective, says Bo Hylén.
– What I quickly discovered when I started this project is the incredible creature of habit you are. You go on about the same streets most of the time. It has been a stimulating challenge to find the exciting details of the everyday routine. To push myself, I have had the rule that I can’t go home unless I photographed something during the day. This I have partly done to avoid the blame that I have no inspiration, says Stefan Peterson.
– The roses in the garden all have their peculiarities and what I invest in them, they provide a thousand fold back, and what I have chosen to photograph is very important to me, says David Carlson and adds: The old roses are part of humanity’s cultural history – legendary for its medicinal properties and inspiration for both poems and art. They offer a variety of qualities. Old-fashioned roses are holistic sustainable and relevant to most of us by being a symbol of beauty as well as love. We can dream us away in the amazing scents, multilayered flavors and their historical name – Fantin Latour, Aimable Amie, Jacques Cartier, Duchesse de Rohan, Stanwell Perpetual – in common is that they all have a history extending over many centuries. The old-fashioned roses continue to touch us with its vital and cross-pollinating synesthesia.
