Johan Sundgren. Exhibition "By Lamplight"

April 30 – June 7

Opening – 17:00

Latvian Museum of Photography

The exhibition is a result of a photo project that was made when Swedish photographer Johan Sundgren was working as a domestic personal care attendant in Stockholm. He began taking the camera to work to photograph the inhabitants. Second part of the project was for the elderly to photograph him while he was working. “It is interesting how the elderly have been our major carriers of information, equivalent to our time’s Internet and Google. They formed a collective memory and conveyed information. Nowadays, everything goes much faster, and we don’t always turn to the elderly for the information,” tells the author.
