Yesterday I visited my lab to sign the limited edition of 16 prints included in my exhibition “An eye for an eye”. Now there is framing with glass and black wooden frames. A wooden crate will be built that flies across the Atlantic with destination New York The Maidstone hotel in early June. The photographs will be displayed in 3 different sizes in the hotel.
Per Holmberg has done such a fine job and I am very grateful.
Here is a small glimpse from the preparations. This is the first time I exhibit in North America, but so fun and well worth all the work.
July 11 I fly to New York, July 13 there is an launching party at the hotel to present the photographs. The exhibition will be on display for a year.
I will stay a few days and document everything.
Jens Odlander has interviewed me:
Kristin Andersson (b. 1960) is a Swedish photographer that made a name for herself for being at the same time documentary and realistic while keeping an eye for the particulate and divergent. She brings both forensic work and archaeology into her pictures. “My fascination for minuteness is always present”, she has said, “a love for excavations: I want to repeat that detail in my pictures. Like an archaeologist that uncovers an ancient artifact with the brush”. Her own battle also comes from this obsession with detail. For many years Mrs. Andersson worked as a crime scene forensic photographer for the Stockholm police. Those were dark years, she recalls. Horrid motifs, evil. She had to get out to survive. But the fascination with the unusual is there whatever the genre: fashion, portrait, nature, often an enhanced form of photojournalism. In one of her pictures a murder takes place in the setting of a beautiful garden, victim, and culprit both perfect people. Like the serpent in Paradise. She prefers to work with Leica, Kodak Tri-X and traditional photo paper. This is the first time she exhibits in North America.
