- The provocateur

He has been called the world's greatest fashion photographer of all time but also one of the most provocative with his titillating depictions of strong, independent women. In a new, unique exhibition, Falsterbo Photo Art Museum presents more than a hundred original images signed by Helmut Newton, many odd and rarely seen. Photographic genius or provocateur? One thing is certain - this is an exhibition that leaves no one indifferent!

The Sappers - Kongo Kinshasa

Being a Sapeur is more than a way of dressing, more than a hobby and more than a way to earn money and respect. It is a prestigious fraternity with its own moral and social codes and ultimately it is a way of living and surviving.

Dressing up and parading in the streets makes them feel important, allowing them to forget their daily struggles in chaotic Kinshasa, in the Democratic Republic of Congo.

performance freedom

In photographer Ewa-Mari Johansson's exhibition "Performance Freedom", we meet strong and independent women in fashion images created for the big magazines such as Harper's Bazaar, Donna, Amica and Vogue Sposa, but also images from photo series that take us to the African savannah, and to the performance scene in New York in the 1970s and 1980s.

The images are from her entire career as a photographer, from the 1980s to the 21/2000s, and show fashion from Gianfranco Ferré, John Galliano, Norma Kamali, Prada, and the Italian haute couture house Lancetti.

In the 1970s, Ewa-Mari Johansson worked as a top model in New York, Paris, London and Milan and was seen on the cover of Italian Vogue. She was educated in the United States, in art photography at UCLA, Los Angeles, and with film studies in New York. In addition to fashion photography, she has worked with street photography, and reportage and architecture photography around the world.
