Publicerat – Fotoboken i Sverige, at Hasselblad Center 24 feb – 6 may, 2018.
The exhibition contains 200 titles and the selection is based on three themes: the Society, the ego and the Picture. The concepts reflect overall issues that play a major part in photography, and the boundaries collect books that treat and shape the specific topics and perspectives. The photo book is both visual and tactile. Instead of showing the books in displays, published an open exhibition where visitors can browse freely, look in and read the published books.
About the exhibition: short video with curator Niclas Östlind
An exclusive depiction of the minds of war photographers -modern heroes who daily face the perishability of life and feed on death. The year is 1999. For the young Georgian Alex Kvatashidze, the war in Chechnya seems far away. This until he falls in love with a French photographer and only days after they meet, decide to accompany her to the war-torn Delegate. Immediately the dream of becoming a war reporter arises, something he unfortunately never succeeds in. On the other hand, he is given insights into their world for 13 years and depicts how occupational life affected them. “Why do you go to war if you do not need?” – may be one of the top questions the director Alex is trying to answer.
On the spot after the film, we have the warphotographer and Helsingborgare Olof Jarlbro, whose report has been seen in everything from “Esquire” to “Arbetaren” and who went illegally across the border to Syria to document the war.

“The black and white pictures take us to the run-down camps where waiting and boredom prevails. Children and adults seated and located in the scantily furnished room. Time passes slowly while waiting for news from home or on what will happen in the new country. They do what you need and nothing else. Clothes should be washed and food to be cooked. The pictures are still compositions exude silence in a way that loudly contrasts with the war existence, the people have fled…“
