Framing Bodies, Hasselblad Center 30.5-30.8 2015

A short film about the exhibition Framing Bodies at Hasselblad Center where 5 images from my series Pictures of a Family are shown.

Since the middle of the 19th century photography has been a tool for defining and controlling subjects, but also for confirming and visualising otherwise overlooked places and people. This is manifested in Framing Bodies – a selection of works from the Hasselblad Foundation collection. The exhibition features various photographic framings of the body in relation to four themes: surveillance, breaking norms, labour conditions and colonialism oppression.
