Happy to be part of Hasselblad Foundations – photobook exhibition with the book “Refuge”

Publicerat – Fotoboken i Sverige, at Hasselblad Center 24 feb – 6 may, 2018.

The exhibition contains 200 titles and the selection is based on three themes: the Society, the ego and the Picture. The concepts reflect overall issues that play a major part in photography, and the boundaries collect books that treat and shape the specific topics and perspectives. The photo book is both visual and tactile. Instead of showing the books in displays, published an open exhibition where visitors can browse freely, look in and read the published books.
