Generations by Maja Flink – at Ekely

3. June 2021 @ 10:00 - 10. June 2021 @ 18:00

No matter who you are, you are the child of someone. So universal is the focal point of the Swedish photographer Maja Flink’s portrait series, and photo book Generations.

By photographing mothers and daughters, fathers and sons in Denmark, Sweden, Norway, Iceland and Finland, Maja Flink has portrayed the Nordic family over the last 6 years.

Through her intimate photographs, she shows the complicated dynamics and strong bonds that exist in every family. Maja’s portraits are silent tales of human dramas. They touch on the changes that happen imperceptibly between us, that we may forget to notice, and therefore never fully understand.

There are over a hundred people in her book Generations. Some of them we know, and many more we do not know. Their present gazes, subtle facial expressions and calm postures, invites us to carefully study and discover details in each portrait. The often identical facial features, their clothing and the personal things they surround themselves with.

Over the past year, the pandemic has confronted us all with our close relationships. The need for the family. The relief of getting a break from it. The fear of losing a parent. Maja Flinks relevant family portraits hit the time precisely, and gives us  reason to reflect over our own family relationships.
