591Photography has already told you about the exhibition; "Reality Revisited Photography from the Moderna Museet collection" but it is worth to be repeated: this is a must see exhibition of photography. Major Portofolios of work by photographers including Larry Clark, Duane Michals, Bill Owens, Eva Klasson, Anders Petersen, Arthur Tress and Melissa Shook are on show along with
a smaller numbers of images by Josef Sudek, Paul Strand, Irving Penn and so many others.

Get to know the great photographer Melissa Shook. Her self-portraits and series of pictures of her daughter Krissy from 1972–73 and her daily documentation of life in the New York slums was Shook’s way of coping with existence, the loss of her mother and memories of her.

Anna Tellgren has curated the exhibition that will be on show until Sept 20.
