Most of the festival exhibition partners are based in the Copenhagen region. However, this year we are happy to also present three photo based exhibition venues in the southern Sweden region of Scania – from Landskrona to Falsterbo. It is the perfect occasion for you to cross the bridge and take a day trip to visit one or all of our Swedish partners. 

You can find them in 3 different locations: Falsterbo, Malmö, and Landskrona. This selection of exhibitions could be a good excuse to explore Scania and organise a photo exhibition-road trip to visit them all.

Craig Ames, Photographs of British Algae - AI Impressions

Open 12 May until 24 February 2024

At the same place, if you want to see more of one of our headliners you can also visit Craig Ames’ outdoor exhibition. You probably know him if you follow us – he is the artist behind this year’s intriguing poster. In his project “Photographs of British Algae – AI Impressions”, he uses artificial intelligence to recreate specimens introduced by English botanist and photographer Anna Atkins (1799-1871) in the world’s first photobook and photographic-based record of botanical specimens.

Helmut Newton, Provocateur

Open 7 April until 7 January 2024

If you decide to go further South, past Malmö, you can visit Falsterbo Photo Art Museum that presents Helmut Newton’s exhibition “Provocateur”, which recently opened in the privately funded museum. Newton has been called the world’s greatest fashion photographer of all time. In this new exhibition you can find more than 100 numbered and signed original photographs. Many of the most famous images will be shown alongside a number of rarely presented photographs, which makes the exhibition unique for Scandinavia.

Maya Daniels, On the Silence of Myth

Open 5 May until 11 June 2023

If you only have time for a short trip to Sweden we can highly recommend hopping on the train and visiting Galleri Format in the center of Malmö. Here you can explore the mythical work of Swedish photographer Maja Daniels, who recently won a Swedish book award for her latest photo book. In the exhibition  “On the Silence of Myth” she shows new work. “Within this series I use photography as a tool for myth making. A myth can be used to make sense of the world and oral traditions are often based on myths and folklore as a way of learning and sharing, but these myths exist within the boundaries of the unspoken”.
