Photographer Lena Öritsland exhibits pictures from the Gothenburg Harbour.
Lena has been walking with a camera on her shoulder since she was 17, and in the beginning of her 30s, she wanted to take the opportunity to develop her artistic side. She started studying at the University of Arts, Crafts and Design in Stockholm. Some of the photos from her graduation exhibition were chosen to a collective exhibition for Swedish photography at the Modern Museum. Today Lena works full time with her artistic photography.
The shipyards, harbour and cranes have always been in Lena's life and after moving back to Gothenburg from Stockholm, she understood how much they symbolised.
When she received free access to the harbour area in 2015, she spent about twenty days there, during six months. She documented cranes, docks, ladders, raindrops, early morning till late in the evening and in all kinds of weather. Then it took an entire year before Lena came up with what she wanted to do with the pictures and in what way she wanted to showcase them.
Vernissage Saturday, March 3, 2018 at 12.00 -16.00.
