Please join us for an evening with Swedish photographer Gerry Johansson who is presenting his latest publication American Winter, published by Mack.
Gerry will be in conversation with David Campany in our Cafe from 18.30, and will be signing copies of his books in the Bookshop from 19.30.
For American Winter, Gerry Johansson, who has made quiet pictures of quiet places, often lying in the shadows of industrial decline since the early eighties, travelled through semi-deserted towns in Kansas, Nebraska, South Dakota, North Dakota, Montana, Wyoming and Colorado, finding as much beauty as there was misery in landscapes cloaked in snow.
Gerry Johansson is a Swedish photographer who developed an interest in photography during his teen years and moved to New York in the early 1960s.
He later studied graphic design at Konstindustriskolan (today the School of Design and Crafts at the University of Gothenburg), working in graphic design for fifteen years. Since the mid-1980s he has worked as a freelance photographer. His first solo exhibition was at the Fotografiska Museet at the Moderna Museet, 1982. Supplement: Deutschland is the final book in the series of geographically focused publications starting with Amerika, 1998, Sverige, 2005, Kvidinge, 2007, Ulan Bator, 2009 and Pontiac, 2011, Deutschland, 2012, Antarktis, 2014, Ravenna and Tokio, 2016.
David Campany is a writer and curator, and teaches at the University of Westminster, London.
