Anders Petersen [Photographs]

A big monographic exhibition dedicated to Anders Petersen proposes to discover 330 photographs as an outstanding and whirlwind journey in the work of the famous Swedish photographer. Street scenes, portraits, still lifes? All these images disclose the photographer’s sensations. From his successful debut thanks to the Café Lehmitz series (1975) to the current work entitled City Diary, his universe has expanded and he has asserted his artistic approach.

Visitors will discover the unequalled power of black and white photography, the visual energy of brilliant snapshots asserted from the debut: These images illustrate the photographer’s “wish to be surprised by the unpredictable and to get as closest as possible to other human beings…”
