John Hagby - Letter to my younger self

Abecita Art Museum, Borås
|Translated by Google translation|

Portrait and advertising photographer John Hagby wanted to try to capture real emotions in his photography - get people to show their inner self in a close encounter with the camera. In psychology, a technique is sometimes used where you write a letter to your younger self, to process or reflect on things that have happened before. What happens if the letter and words become something you read aloud, in front of the camera? The emotions that emerge during this reading are exactly what John captured in a series of touching, thought-provoking images that both show - and evoke - real emotions.

During the exhibition period 22 October 2020 - 10 January 2021, the following will also be shown:

  • Patrik Wennerlund - Lofoten to Hong Kong
  • Elin Berge - Lars Tunbjörkstiftelsen's winner 2020
  • Benjamin Nørskov - Epa Sweden
