WATCH the exhibition ( 51 pictures )
My name is Jan Bernhardtz and am a Swedish photographer living in Berlin. I'm retired now.
I love walking the streets of this city. It's huge and diverse. Two parallell streets can be very different. I switch streets and experience new things.
I don't like big heavy cameras. I prefer old discreet film cameras. Discreet and silent.
In my youth I studied at Christer Strömholm's photographic school in Stockholm. He has meant a lot to my way of seeing the world around me. Yet I try to interpret the world in my own way.
The pictures presented here are from 1969/70 and mainly from the Swedish town Örebro.
I am glad to finally present a permanent online exhibition with pictures by Jan Bernhardtz. His way of seeing the world is incomparable. I am a JB fan indeed. We actually met in real life the other day for the first time. A memorable moment, although Jan was not too impressed by Stockholm. He is "Berliner" from top to toe. - Mr Urbano
