House of Sweden Hosts Photography Exhibition

Work by Swedish press photographer Lars Tunbjörk at House of Sweden.

House of Sweden invites you to the grand opening of A View From The Side on March 1, 2023 from  6:30 pm to 9:00 pm. The event is free. Register here.

The retrospective of world-renowned Swedish photographer Lars Tunbjörk will include a presentation by Kathy Ryan from The New York Times Magazine.

Lars Tunbjörk (1956-2015) is one of Sweden’s most internationally renowned photographers. His photographs reveal warmth and humor and a deep fascination for people’s loneliness and longing for meaning. With his critical eye and sense of the absurd, Tunbjörk created almost surrealistic photo art that captured audiences worldwide. 

At a young age, Tunbjörk established himself as one of Sweden’s most prominent press photographers. During his career, he published over 10 photography books and did close to 20 assignments for The New York Times Magazine alone. Following his sudden passing in 2015, the Lars Tunbjörk Foundation was established to preserve the entirety of Tunbjörk’s body of work. 

The exhibition is produced by the Embassy of Sweden in Washington, D.C. in collaboration with the Lars Tunbjörk Foundation.

House of Sweden is located at 2900 K Street in Georgetown.
