Ann-Sofi Rosenkvist

Swedish, 1971–present

Themes as our relationship to time, fragility as a strength and the photographic medium as a tool to conceptually move in time are central to Rosenkvist’s work. She has been working as a photographer since the end of the 90s and has produced and participated in numerous exhibitions. With her background in the documentary field, Rosenkvist’s photography often holds a sense of sensitivity, stillness and thoughtfulness.

Rosenkvist works with both stills and film and her debut film The Crown (2012) was shown as a separate exhibition at Fotografiska. The exhibition Circularity opened at Gallery Axel in 2015 in Stockholm. The film installation Stay with me (2020), is her most recent work, showing her parents standing on a beach in Riviera. Riviera is a small village in the southwest part of Sweden, a place strongly connected to Rosenkvist’s profound childhood memories.

Rosenkvist has a strong interest in teaching photography and art to young children and frequently runs workshops in this field. She holds a teachers degree in Art. Educated at Nordic School of Photography and Konstfack University of Arts, Crafts and Design.
