ITALY – photography by Anders Petersen, Lorenzo Castore and Martin Bogren

The ethereal black and white photography of three internationally renowned photographers takes viewers on a poetic journey through Italy.

Together, Anders Petersen, Lorenzo Castore and Martin Bogren present three distinct photographic personalities and perspectives of everyday life in Italy. The outcome is a portrait of the country that is anything but typical.

Anders Petersen has captured Italy on camera since the 1980s and is considered a master of international photography. Lorenzo Castore is an Italian filmmaker and photographer who finds inspiration from around the globe. Martin Bogren is a photographer who makes reference to his upbringing in Scania but also captures people from faraway places on film. One thing they all have in common is the belief that photography is life; as well as a personal history of the photographer.

Anders Petersen, Lorenzo Castore and Martin Bogren all work within a tradition defined by Christer Strömholm (1918-2002). Christer Strömholm’s photographic narrative has influenced several generations of photographers and can be described in short as humanistic street photography. In 2014, Dunkers kulturhus exhibited a major retrospective of Christer Strömholm’s work CHR – POST SCRIPTUM. ITALY makes reference to that exhibition as well as Dunkers kulturhus’ long-standing tradition of exhibiting black and white photography.

The exhibition is produced by Dunkers kulturhus with support from the Italian Cultural Institute of Stockholm “CM Lerici”
