Christer Hansson - The dairy farmer in Torp

Abecita Art Museum, Borås
|Translated by Google translation|

Christer Hansson is a press photographer from Kinna and every day it is the art pictures and sports that apply. Having photographed since the late 1980s - and for the past 10 years on assignment - he sought challenges in a new project. For a year, Christer has therefore, with his camera, followed Ulf Arnell, a dairy farmer from Hyssna, and documented Ulf's constant care for his farm and his animals. He conducts milk production on a smaller scale and belongs to a group of farmers that is becoming less and less of. A good environment for the animals and an open landscape are key words for Ulf and in Christers Hansson's exhibition "The dairy farmer in Torp" we get to see warmth, humor and documentary photography showing a world that is slowly disappearing.

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