TIME/LIGHT/LOVE –
SWEDISH PHOTOGRAPHIC PORTRAITS 1840
–2017

Showing at Landskrona Museum 8 June 2017 – 28 January 2018

In anticipation of the construction of a photographic history museum in Landskrona, Landskrona Foto presents three unique exhibits based on collections and archives. “TIME/LIGHT/LOVE – Swedish Photographic Portraits 1840-2017” is the second of these. While the first exhibit, ”AgNO3: Histories of Science and Photography in Sweden”, which became a public and critical success, explored the use of photography for scientific purposes, this follow-up exhibition revolves around the intimate, the secret and the human.

Time, light and love; Landskrona Museum allows people with lives as complex as our own to come forth from bygone times. The stories of our lives run in tandem with our lives — stories that are told verbally, in text and images, by ourselves and by others. We document and invent each other, we take away and add, we reveal and hide, we give and we take. The exhibit’s photographs, extraordinary and beautiful, create the possibility of comparing our lives to theirs, and measuring our time against times past.

WHAT DO PHOTOGRAPHERS DO WITH THEIR PHOTOGRAPHS?

Storing framed photographs, after and between exhibitions, is often a problem for photographers, for reasons of space and security. Landskrona Foto offers photographers the chance to store exhibition pictures. One condition for this is that we judge that the exhibition pictures can be interesting to show in their entirety or in parts in Landskrona during the next five to seven years.

Storage is free of charge for the photographer, using a heated warehouse with a high security level. If parts of the stored exhibition are later shown in Landskrona, this can take place on condition that the photographer approves the context. Questions of payments are settled when the situation arises.
