October 30, 2013

Different Distances: Fashion Photography Goes Art, a compelling exhibition of photography by five internationally renowned Swedish photographers is being presented by the Embassy of Sweden at the House of Sweden now through December 8th, Saturday and Sundays only.

Denise Grünstein, Julia Hetta, Martina Hoogland Ivanow, Julia Peirone and Elisabeth Toll belong to a new generation of Swedish fashion photographers who have made a reputation around the world and can be found in international fashion magazines and art institutions. Curated by Greger Ulf Nilson, Different Distances: Fashion Photography Goes Art, combines the creative energy of these five strong photographers. The images are a game of balance between art and fashion photography, plunging its roots into cultural history as well as personal experiences. They overcome the difference between the intimate and the distant, creating atmospheres that bewitch us.
