Anders Petersen

Color Lehmitz

13 March — 23 August, 2020

There is something about the gaze. A gaze that tells you that here, right here, you can be yourself. Here you can flourish, rest, and endure.

Anders Petersen is now exhibiting Color Lehmitz at Fotografiska, curated by Angie Åström in cooperation with Fotografiska's exhibition producer Emilie Ackerman.

Anders Petersen's gaze is seen through the camera lens. It meets its fellow humans in an atmosphere of encouraging curiosity, and in one millisecond it manages to capture the moment. A moment that confirms that we are all connected – that there is a bond between us humans that we might not be able to explain scientifically, but we can all sense it, and recognise when someone manages to capture it on film.

If you really want something, it's a question of life and death. Then nothing but a kind of razor-sharp intuition works for the onset, and daring to be weak enough. Not strong, but weak, and welcoming an unbiased meeting – we are all, after all, family. For me, it was never actually about being a photographer, it was always about the human connection, and the camera is my tool, says Anders Petersen.
