My photo ”Alone” has been accepted to the art exhibition Skaraborgssalongen 2017.
I am really glad to be a part of this art exhibition, in the town where I was born, so it will in a way be kind of back to the roots.
It’s a photo taken with an analogue 35mm camera and Tri-X 400 film during a visit in the forest outside of Mariestad earlier this year.
”Alone” is a part of my project ”Breathing in the silence” consisting of analogue black and whites nature and landscape photos.
The exhibition ”Skaraborgssalongen 2017” opens up the 18th of May at Skövde Art museum and will hang there all summer until it closes the 19th of August.
So if you are on a roadtrip through Sweden this summer, I really think you should take a break here and pay it a visit!
A while ago I wrote an articel for an magazine at work and did an interview with the actor Jonny Lundgren who also is the clown called Bulgo.
I also got the opertunity to follow Bulgo when he was visiting children at a hospital.
And it was very touching to see the sensitive connection between the children and Bulgo, how their mood changed and a glimt of joy lightened up in their eyes, even though some of the children were really sick.
It was a really nice experience to meet Jonny (…and Bulgo) and see what he ment for the children he visited.
The artist Björn Molin
Björn Molin is an abstract expressionist artist who lives in Värmland, Sweden.
I have meet him several times and he is a very nice and kind person.
The art he creates is beautiful, emotional and powerful, and for the most of times in black and white.
Visit his webpage and take a look at his art work molindustries.se and you can also find him at Instagram @bjornmolindustries.
Earlier this year the local newspaper VF published an articel about Björn – I huvudet på en abstrakt expressionist
Where I rest my mind and soul.
Breathing in the silence is a photo project in progress that I work with.
The photographs are taken with old analog cameras and medium format 120 mm film.
