Book launch · Julian Slagman’s ‘Looking at My Brother’

 

Please join us for the book launch of Julian Slagman’s ‘Looking at My Brother’ 14th of June from 16.00 – 20.00 at NW Gallery in Nansensgade. Come meet the photographer, grab a drink and get your book signed. A pop-up exhibition of the printing plates from the offset print at the legendary Narayana Press will accompany the launch. The exhibition will be open throughout the weekend Saturday and Sunday 15th and 16th June from 11.00 – 16.00 where Julian will be present.

In this his first monograph, Slagman presents work made over the past decade, photographing his two younger brothers, Mats and Jonah. From individual portraits to shared moments, the images offer a poignant exploration of childhood, growth, and the passage of time. The work deals with the vulnerability of the body and the brutality of the scars that Mats suffered after his scoliosis surgery. These physical reminders juxtapose with the resilience and strength embodied by both brothers as they navigate adolescence and brotherhood. Through the book, Slagman delves into the vulnerable relationship between photography and time, inviting us to witness the tender moments of connection, and the world created growing up.

Julian Slagman (b. 1993, Hamburg) is a German-Dutch photographer currently living and working in Stockholm.
