591 Exhibition - Ewa Stackelberg

Photos © Ewa Stackelberg

It seems that I have met Ewa several times, first when her book Tale for the living was handed over to me. I was very moved by her work. The book was awarded "Best photobook of the year" in 2001 by The Association of Swedish Professional Photographers (SFF) and I was happy to publish several pictures from her book on The F blog around Christmas 2006. This extensive display of Ewa's work included pictures from her exhibition "Surrrender".

A couple of weeks ago I finally met Ewa in real life in Stockholm. We met on a café and she showed me a tiny, beautiful album with 10x10cm colour photographs - an intimate story, a childhood revisited depicted with great sensibility. I loved it.

591 Photography is first to publish these pictures. There are two different ways of exploring Ewa's photos. She recommends the slideshow, but you may also see the series in the album view.

y, claro, te preguntas, qué quedará de mí cuando yo muera, un clavo, un picaporte, una medalla, las caras de los perros coroneles, las cruces abatidas, un cuadro del cuadro del óleo de mi retrato, el hombro y el rostro de mi padre, de mi padre que es el rostro de mi hijo, de una rama, un copo, sí, un copo, de nieve un solo copo, un sueño de nieve derretida
