It was a grainy day but with sunny spells. I took Maria and Robin to Fotografins Hus located on Skeppsholmen in central Stockholm. On show is "Beyond Nature - Constructions of Landscape" with 30 photographs by Margherita Spilluttini. Fotografins Hus is led by Hans Hedberg who works at the School of Photography, University of Gothenburg and Olof Glemme working at Konstfack, University College of Art, Design and Craft.

We get a chance to talk to Olof and Hans who tell us that Fotografins Hus are dedicating the exhibition season to Landscape photography and that Robert Adams, winner of the Hasselblad award is one of the exhibiting photographers in this project.

Margherita Spilluttini's work is impressive - she is one of very few woman photographers who has made a career as an architectural photographer. Her pictures from the mountains of Central Europe are quite different from the photos that we are exposed to from this part of the world. Spilluttini is telling us a different story - dams, power plants, tunnels, motorways...this is the sound of an industrialized world.

Spilluttini has something important to tell us and I recommend you to visit Fotografins Hus when in Stockholm. - Mr Urbano

The exhibition is on until 26 September
