Nick Brandt | Artist Talk


Nick Brandt | Artist Talk

Svenska ⟶ På fredag den 15 februari välkomnar vi dig till ett Artist Talk och boksläpp med allas vår älskade fotograf Nick Brandt. Vi öppnar också för en Q&A efter det modererade samtalet.

Nick Brandt har sedan 2001 i oförglömliga och storartade porträtt dokumenterat Östafrikas skövlade natur och utrotningshotade djur. Den 5 februari släpper han den nya boken ’This Empty World’ vars arbete han kommer berätta mer om. Läs mer om boken nedan (engelska).

Boken kostar 525 kr, men under kvällen säljer vi den för fantastiska 395 kr. Alla böcker är för-signerade, men på plats kan han även signera ytterligare om det önskas.

Evenemanget sker i två omgångar med start 18.00 och 19.30 i Fotografiskas Studio på plan 2. Detta i mån av plats.

Medlemmar går självfallet in gratis. Icke-medlemmar betalar vanlig entréavgift (eller passar på att bli medlemmar innan såklart). Välkommen hit!

English ⟶ On Friday, February 15, we welcome you to an Artist Talk and book release with the beloved photographer Nick Brandt. After the moderated talk we will also host a Q&A session.

Since 2001, fine art photographer Nick Brandt has been documenting the vanishing natural world and animals of East Africa through his haunting, majestic portraits. On February the 5th he releases the new book “This Empty World” which is the topic of the evening. Read more about the book below.

The book costs SEK 525, but during the evening we sell it for SEK 395. All books are pre-signed by Nick, but if needed he can also sign during the evening.

The Artist Talk will happen in two sessions at 6 pm and 7.30 pm in our Studio at floor 2. This as far as space allows.

Of course, members go in for free. Non-members pay the usual entrance fee (or become members beforehand of course). Welcome!

⟶ About the book


128 pages, 84 photos, 15" x 13"
Thames & Hudson, Feb, 2019

This Empty World addresses the escalating destruction of the African natural world at the hands of humans, showing a world where, overwhelmed by runaway development, there is no longer space for the animals to survive. The people in the photos are also often helplessly swept along by the relenetless tide of 'progress'.

Each image is a combination of two moments in time, captured weeeks apart, almost all from the exact same locked-off camera position.

Initially, a partial set is built and lit. Weeks, even months, follow, while the animals that inhabit the region become comfortable enough to enter the frame.

Once the animals are captured on camera, the full sets - bridge and highway construction sites, a petrol station, a bus station and more - are built by the art department team. In all but a few of the photos, the camera remains fixed in place throughout.

A second sequence is then photographed with full set, and a large cast of people drawn from the local communities and beyond. The final large scale prints are a composite of the two elements.

The book reproduces the panoramic tableaux at maximum size (30"/ 70cm) on the double page spreads.

Brandt contributes two essays: The first deals with the concept of the series, the second a behind-the-scenes description of the elaborate production, with multiple accompanying making-of photos.

(Note: the images were all photographed on local Maasai community land in Kenya. After the sets were removed and all their elements recycled with almost zero waste, no evidence of the shoot now remains in the landscape).

/Nick Brandts Artist Talk kommer att hållas i Studion på plan 2 och i två separata omgångar. Tiderna som gäller är 18.00 och 19.30.

/Nick Brandt's Artist Talk will be held in the Studio on floor 2 and for two separate rounds. The times will be 18.00 and 19.30.
