It’s becoming clear that people as human beings are at the center of things in this year's exhibition. At a time when voices questioning whether people are equal are becoming louder and louder, Talent focuses on the human being in all its forms. For instance, look at Ali Lorestani’s portrait of the Kurdish woman refusing to give up hope.
"This year, 2018, will mark the fifth anniversary of Fotografiska’s Autumn Salon and we’re celebrating this milestone with a new take on this well-established competition, which is being developed together with the actual museum. Which is why in 2018 we’re introducing Fotografiska Talent. An exhibition that will retain the core elements as a tribute to Sweden’s photographers, both established and amateur, and all photography enthusiasts and residents of Sweden." – Wiktoria Michalkiewicz exhibition producer at Fotografiska Stockholm.
