Strömholm is internationally renowned and is known as one of the founders of the legendary Fotoskolan (1962-72) in Stockholm. With Blomqvist's increasing focus on photography it is a privilege to show a comprehensive exhibition with many of the artist's famed photographs.

The exhibition presents black and white vintage photographs with an insight into Strömholm's world and artistic career. Images are created through trips to Paris, Spania, Japan and the USA and encompasses death, life, the private life and friends. Included in the exhibition are abstract non-figurative compositions from early on in this career, portraits from the well known series of transsexuals from Paris in the 1950's and 60's as well as vulnerable portraits of children. In Strömholm's artistry one feels an absence as well as a presence.

The exhibition is made possible through a collaboration between Bildverksamheten Strömholm and Professor Emeritus and photo-historian Robert Meyer.

An exhibition catalogue with a wide image presentation and texts will be available for purchase.
