Claes Grundsten - Landscape

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

Claes Grundsten is the nature photographer who believes that we need to see beautiful nature images that give hope for the future. Already at a young age, he was attracted to using a camera and is today one of the country's more famous nature photographers with more than 30 books and several exhibitions in his CV. He has been promoted to an honorary doctorate for his descriptions of nature, received several scholarships and won fine prizes. A photo he took in Sarek adorns the new thousand kronor note that came into use a few years ago.

Claes works documentary, with technical perfection and timeless aesthetics as the guidelines. Magnificent scenes of the Swedish mountains are icons for his design, but he also follows a personal trace with close-up compositions that are his own interpretation of the beauty of nature. Most of all, he is a landscape photographer who, by switching motifs between magnificent views and intimate sections, has created a personal style.

The exhibition "Landscape" contains picturesfrom Sweden and his many trips abroad. The selection focuses on the composition of the motifs and their interaction with each other. Many are included in his latest book, which is also entitled "Landscape".

The exhibition runs from January 27 to May 15, 2022, at Abecita Popkonst & Foto.

Facts

In the museum's shop, you will find unique photo books that are usually not available in the regular bookstore. The shop is run in collaboration with Neva Books, which is the country's largest player in the field. Neva was started and run by the zealots Erkki and Gunilla. Abecita Popkonst & Foto is the first partner in Sweden, but Neva can temporarily be seen as a Popup store on various occasions and at festivals. The range consists of everything from basic textbooks on photography to foreign collector's editions in very limited editions.
