The Borås photographers who stepped out into the world

Abecita Art Museum - Closed until 25 February 2021, Borås
|Translated by Google translation|

Per-Anders Pettersson, Roger Turesson, Lars Tunbjörk and Hasse Persson - four different photographers who came from Borås' soil and who, based on Borås Tidning's editorial staff, went on to international careers. What they all have in common is that at different times they have worked at Borås Tidning, where Bengt Bergman, photographer and later head of the photo editors 1942 - 1977, created an open and permissive culture for newspaper photographers. The photographers got to work creatively and independently and were seen as an important part of the magazine's news coverage. The photographic presence in the media increased both in Borås Tidning and in the world at large during this time and is today an obvious part of all news coverage.

Over the years, the four photographers' various assignments have given us award-winning photos from the world's war zones, discos, crises, cultural expressions - crucial moments and everyday phenomena. All this has to do with skill and innovationcaptured in a picture and in the exhibition, Abecita Popkonst & Foto shows a selection of their photographic contributions to the world and to us.

Opening: Thursday 14 October at 18.30-19.30

The exhibition runs from October 14, 2021 to January 23, 2022.
