A Way Away – Swedish Photographers Abroad 1862–2018

Showing 7 June 2018 – 27 January 2019

It is time for the next exhibition of historical photography in Landskrona. Having reflected the role of photography in science in 2016 and showcased the art of portraiture in 2017, we now come to A WAY AWAY – Swedish Photographers Explore the World 1850–2000, where the ambition is to show how Swedish photographers set off to observe the world through their camera lens.

Exhibited here are pictorial histories born of curiosity, passion, worship, chance, conviction, duty, compulsion and the urge to study. The photographers were there – sometimes purely by chance, sometimes after singleminded and arduous journeys of thousands of miles. Sometimes they stayed away for a night, sometimes for months on end, sometimes for the rest of their lives.

The exhibition is presented in collaboration with the Nordic Museum in Stockholm.

Landskrona Foto: View Chile

Showing 28 June – 28 October 2018

Each summer, Landskrona Foto presents another country’s photographic history in an exhibition which has become an annual tradition. This year, it’s the turn of a Latin American country, with the choice falling on Chile. Sweden and Chile have a lot in common. Both countries are geographically elongated and located on the edge of their respective continents. Ever since the coup which led to a military dictatorship in 1973, connections between the two countries on a human level have been strong. There are still around 50,000 people of Chilean descent living in Sweden. Cultural and scientific ties between the two countries are strong.

At the same time, there are of course major differences – socially, culturally and politically – as demonstrated by Chile’s photographic tradition. This exhibition has been compiled by curator Christian Caujolle in collaboration with Rodrigo Gomes Rivera, artistic director of the international festival of photography in Valparaiso. It includes the work of internationally renowned photographer Sergio Larrain, as well as six other photographers.

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.
