Last weekend we had opened the exhibition FOLKKÄRT OCH SVARTVITT by Peter Kjellerås in our, So Foto, gallery. The exhibition consists of black and white concert and portrait photography of famous Swedish and international artists taken by Peter Kjellerås.
For all of us it feels great to see these images, not even because of cultural hunger, but because Peter has captured our idols in his way, special way. Many people have been to those concerts and the photographs certainly brings the good memories back. If You were born in this century, come to this exhibition for visualizing the legends You have heard from the music lessons of the history. Or maybe it is just a right time to fulfill Your home art collection?
Most of the exhibited photographs, were taken in Stockholm, where Peter worked as a press photographer for more than 20 years at the Aftonbladet and afterwards successfully freelancing on his own. Not just Stockholm was his playground. During his career Peter has been reporting from Gaza, followed the Swedish soldiers to Afghanistan, was even kidnapped in Zimbabwe, fishing with pure fishermen in Cape Verde, and dived among the reefs in Australia. He photographed such happenings like, the closing of the factories, worked with his camera in prisons, in hospitals and many more. Of course, he has been nominated and won many prizes, in such photo competitions as The Image of the Year and similar.
Coming back to the exhibition FOLKKÄRT OCH SVARTVITT, no doubt You can find one of Your favorite artists here. Who is it David Bowie, Prince, Freddy Mercury, Bob Dylan or might be Laleh?
