If everyone had the same open-minded, non-judgemental and curious outlook on life as Jonas Bendiksen, the world would be a much better place. A Norwegian photographer signed by the famous Magnum agency already at a young age, Bendiksen's latest endeavor is now featuring at Fotografiska. For this new exhibition, The Last Testament, he spent three years on a personal as well as photographic and journalistic journey following seven men, all of whom consider themselves the Second Coming of Christ.
"Yes, I am coming soon." The end of the New Testament refers to the son of God returning to the world and provided the starting point for Bendiksen's work.
"These three years are certainly among the most rewarding in my life. Full of powerful experiences where I've been in contact with these different self-proclaimed messiahs and their followers. All of them are passionate about preaching their messages and enlightening the world that the end is nigh. Because the Messiah has returned, because Jesus has come back to Earth, and because a new, better order will soon prevail" – berättar Jonas Bendiksen.
