Richard Avedon & HERB RITTS

- From black and white to color

Richard Avedon and Herb Ritts were not just photographers; they were storytellers who used their cameras to reveal the depth and complexity of their subjects. Their work continues to inspire and fascinate, and their impact on photography and visual culture is immeasurable. Through their lenses we catch a glimpse of the many faces of humanity, and their legacy lives on in every image they created, as does their global influence and timeless relevance.

SPECIAL EXHIBITION March 29 - AUGUST 15 (in the Bistro)

EWA-MARI JOHANSSON - Supermodels Backstage

They lounge or twirl backstage at Karl Lagerfeld and Donna Karan shows, among others. Their names shine in neon letters all over the world throughout the 1990s: Helena Christensen, Kate Moss, Claudia Schiffer, Linda Evangelista... movie stars of their time. In garments from Karl Lagerfeld for Chanel, Enrico Coveri, Donna Karan DKNY, Badgley Mischka, Ellen Tracy, Anna Molinari for Bluemarin and more.

In Ewa-Mari Johansson's Supermodels Backstage, we see how the atmosphere backstage goes from the early morning's calm lull in the homely mess of coffee mugs, fixing hair, makeup and trying on clothes - to hyper-focus once the show starts. All chaotic on the surface, but organized in the smallest detail with a military timing, so the right model wears the right clothes in the right order. Mission: To deliver a theater of fashion that exudes perfection on stage to a demanding front row
audience ranging from celebrities and movie stars to the legendary Anna Wintour and Grace
Coddington at Vouge.
This is the place where everything comes to a head.

March 29 - June 9

Gabriel Isak - Into the blue

Gabriel Isak was born in 1990 in Huskvarna, Sweden. In 2016 he received his Bachelor of Fine Arts degree in Photography at the Academy of Art University in San Francisco, California. His exhibition, Into the Blue, includes works from various collections that Gabriel Isak has created with a strong focus on the color blue. Here the camera has been used as a tool to create images filled with symbols and emotions in surrealist and minimalist landscapes.

The blue thread of the exhibition presents a calm and peaceful atmosphere, touching on themes of melancholy, existentialism, psychology and the dream world. In desolate landscapes with anonymous subjects, the viewer is invited to interact with them, where they can imagine themselves as the subjects, and reflect back on their own life journey and experiences.

Camilla Åkrans

Sensual, female and soulful." This was the final sentence in the justification when fashion photographer Camilla Åkrans received Elle magazine's honorary award in 2019. And this is not the first time she has been awarded. She has previously been named Fashion Photographer of the Year three times by the same magazine.

Camilla Åkrans said in an interview that she portrays women from the same perspective as she wants to be seen: strong, sexy and vulnerable, but on a woman's terms.

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.
