Gerry Johansson - Lars Tunbjörks Foundation Prize 2019

Abecita Art Museum, Borås
|Translated by Google translation|

Over the years, Gerry Johansson has received scholarships, awards and published several photo books. His photo art differs from today's documentary photo - the absence of people in the pictures, the minimalist and graphic expression and the perfection that permeates makes Gerry a photographer who is much appreciated.

Motivation of the jury:

“For more than 30 years, Gerry Johansson has explored popular places shaped by man and society. His pictures are taken with unmistakable precision and a small measure of humor. Gerry Johansson is known for being consistent but the difficulty in his latest book shows that he is constantly innovating. He shows the same sharpness and curiosity whether he is in the US or Härryda. "

Vernissage: Thursday, October 10 at. 18:30.

The exhibition runs from October 10 to January 19, 2020.
