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 (2019), 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.
