Still Life / Work Life unites two very different photographic genres, still life and documentary photography, through a rich and varied selection from the Hasselblad Foundation collection. The juxtaposition of still lifes and photographs documenting the act of work reflects photography’s complex cultural history, as well as the medium’s formal, aesthetic, and social aspects.
This book presents twenty-five artists from different generations and traditions, from Lennart Nilsson and Kerstin Bernhard, to Elina Brotherus and Walid Raad. It is the first in a series of thematic books and exhibitions based on the Hasselblad Foundation Collection. The following artists are included: Marie Andersson, Yngve Baum, Kerstin Bernhard, Elina Brotherus, Dawid, William Eggleston, Monica Englund, Hiroshi Hamaya, Kerstin Hamilton, Jean Hermansson, Lars Johansson, Ulla Jokisalo, Sune Jonsson, Stig T. Karlsson, Tuija Lindström, Lennart Nilsson, Georg Oddner, Irving Penn, Walid Raad, Björn Rantil, Åsa Stjerna, Trine Søndergaard, Tuuli Truhponen, Filippo Zambon, and Pernilla Zetterman.
