CFF – Centrum för fotografi

Stockholm, Sweden

Stockholm, Sweden

CFF - Center of Photography presents five thematic suites
– a selection of fifteen Swedish contemporary photographers.

Time and Documentation
The image suite presents photographers driven by the desire to tell a story through emotions surrounding identification, new contexts and playfulness.
Photographers: Emilia Bergmark–Jiménez, Thobias Fäldt and Per Kristiansen.

The Constructed Scene Room
The theme focuses around people’s relationship to time and space, to visualise and orchestrate memories and moods, dreams and reality, but at times also a sedate, burlesque humour.
Photographers: Nygårds Karin Bengtsson, Susanna Hesselberg and Johan Willner.

Glimpse – contemporary portrait
The suite shows a documentation of an interactive audio-visual studio by the artist community Glimpse. The result is a string of images and expressions in the form of imaginative contemporary portraits.
Photographers: Malou Bergman, Alvaro Campo, Nadja Ekman and Mattias Larson.

Nature and Transience
These works raise questions about nature and transience through a seductive interpretation of Linnaeus' sexual system and a series of still lifes linked to food and consumption.
Photographers: Helene Schmitz and August Erikssons.

Own Universe - documentary and staged
Here we are confronted with constructed surrealistic visual worlds as well as documented everyday details inserted into new formations, but also with questions about identity, heredity and existence.
Photographers: Helena Blomqvist, Julia Peirone and Pernilla Zetterman.

CFF – Centrum för fotografi

Centrum för fotografi [Centre for Photography] is an organisation for members and associates whose task is to provide general education and convey knowledge regarding photographic images. The hub acts as a gallery and an office on Tjärhovsgatan in Stockholm. The premises are situated in the “Kapsylen” cultural building, which is a collective building for independent cultural groups. The gallery is a brisk and lively meeting place and a forum that holds and explores public debates on photography.

The gallery hosts current Swedish and international photo exhibitions that are associated with pedagogic activities such as lectures, discussion evenings, debates and seminars. Exhibitions are also conveyed, marketed and distributed as touring exhibitions nationally and internationally. CFF arranges regular portfolio displays in Stockholm and Malmö, cooperates with other players in the field of photography and arranges residential exchanges with the other Nordic countries.

The principal sponsor is the Swedish Arts Council. In addition to this, CFF is also supported by Stockholm’s Culture Administration and Culture of the Future.
