Kulturhuset this summer: Gunnar Smoliansky

Nalen 1959



Södermalm 1959




Stockholm 1978

Gunnar Smoliansky, born 1933, is one of the most influential Swedish photographers of our time. He has practiced his "slow photography", "subjective photography" or whatever you may call it for around 50 years, mostly exploring the surroundings of Stockholm.

The exhibition "One image at a time" will open on 14 June. It is a major retrospective exhibition of Smoliansky´s work and will be on show until 14 September. Gunnar Smoliansky is a favourite among many of us working with the F Blog. He was one of the students at Christer Strömholms legendary Fotoskolan. If you love photography then Kulturhuset, Stockholm is the right place to be this summer. Also visit the site of Gunnar Smoliansky.

I'm leaving tomorrow morning for Goteborg, Ulf. I'll do my best to have a look at the Museum. My only complaint is that These places, though being very active and cheap, compared to Italy, close so early in the evening ...
Well, I'll try.

I forgot to mention he's being exhibited in Goteborg Hasselblad Foundation.

I went to the art museum and Hasselblad Center on Sunday. Amazing images and a lot of them. Maybe 200. Small, 18x24 cm in white frames. Recommended!

These photos help me think about the difference between capturing the light that reflects off objects and capturing the light that illuminates sensibilities.

I'm back from the Museum and must admit that it's worth to be visited. It takes a good hour to run through and, beside, this the admittance fee is only 22SEK.

There are some two/three hundreds excellent prints in their original format which perfectly convey the author's being one-thing with time and with its propagations into the real world.

Just a point I wish KulturHuset won't miss to offer the visitors: a printed catalogue.

P.S. Also worth a visit the Photography School final exams works.
