Fotografiska is hosting the major retrospective on one of Sweden's most internationally successful photographers ever, Lars Tunbjörk (1956 – 2015). Curated by his wife filmmaker Maud Nycander and curator and photographer Hasse Persson, the exhibition gathers a wide selection of Tunbjörk's entire body of work.

With a special eye for that which isn't normally noticed – that which lurks beneath the surface, for which words are not enough. That which elicits the emotions of recognition, be that shivers, goosebumps or tears of joy. Lars Tunbjörk's eye framed that which he wanted others to notice as well – but always posed as a question, "Is it really supposed to be like this?"
With equal parts humour, warmth and darkness, and perhaps a pinch of exasperation, he captured scenes which cause the viewer to pause, think and in some strange way even feel a sense of recognition. And this regardless of whether he was using his special palette of vivid colours and harsh flash photography to capture big-box stores in small American provincial towns, Japanese office landscapes or the decline of the welfare state in his place of birth, Borås. A mark of his stature and influence is that he leaves behind the Swedish expression of a 'Tunbjörkare' or a 'Tunbjörkland', meaning an image or a place with particular qualities, a snapshot reflecting absurd everyday observations and a critical view of life.
