Opening of The Grand Focus

The photographers, Britt Aximon, Jan Bernhardtz, Daniel Björkert, Kristofer Bratt, Madelene Johansson, Johan Kauppinen, Lena Källberg, Ulla Larsson, Christer Törnkvist and Li Östlund, all work with some kind of low tech camera equipment, such as pinhole or simple plastic cameras, in which the lens is sometimes replaced by inverted or homemade lenses.

”10LoFi is a reaction to post-modernism’s view of the photograph as a staple among others. The word sharpness has come to mean optical quality or resolution,” the group states, ”and surely, if that kind of technology focused measurement is used to judge our images they are often inferior to photographs made with conventional high tech equipment. But we are searching for something else.”
