Malmöfestivalen - photographs on the big screen

I have a theory about that they like things big in Malmö, Sweden's third biggest city. They have the impressive bridge, Öresunsbron connecting to the Danish capital, the tallest residential building in the EU (Turning Torso) and Malmöfestivalen is the biggest city festival in Scandinavia counting 1,4 million visitors during eight days.

To top this - the festival will show big size photographs, projected on a building in the center of the city. It is a great idea by Thomas H Johnsson who has worked with Cecilia Sterner to create the event with participating photographers Anna Clarén, Martin Bogren, Sanna Sjöswärd, Andreas Engman, Nils Petter Löfstedt, Jessica Silversaga, Pieter Ten Hoopen and Thomas himself.

Every night during the festival, pictures by one of the photographers will be presented on the big screen.
