Åsa Sjöström - To visualize the invisible

Abecita Art Museum, Borås
|Translated by Google translation|

Åsa Sjöström is an attentive photographer whose work usually concerns subjects like vulnerability in women and children.

"Photography for me is not really about taking pictures. It is often a collaboration with the people I photograph, I think that together we create the image by inviting me into their worlds and seeing them, listening and taking in. Photography is a slow process to get close. Regardless of each other or story, humanity is the most important to me, the environment around is their existing places, like a beautiful scenery. Reconciling documentary photography with artistry is important for me, as well as portraying the strength of man wherever you are in life and how it is all about it. Man's stubborn everyday life can contain both pride and beauty. "
