Since its opening in 1971, Stockholm’s Museum of Photography has held 150 exhibitions. They have attempted to emphasize two different functions of photography: the photograph as an isolated artistic experience and the photograph as representative of the historical development of this art form in the last 150 years. In the past, viewing a photo implied registering a singular image. Today however, a photograph also aims to express the artist’s ideas, experiences, and emotions. This catalog rejoices in the developments of the 1980s, a turning point for photography whereby the talents of a photographer increasingly simulate those of painter. Stunning photographs by Hans Cogne, Lennart Durehed, Åke E:son Lindman, Tuija Lindström, and Håkan Valentin cogently depict these recent developments that have carved out a much-deserved place for photography in the art world.

Here are erotic black-and-white photographs of women lying or sitting, partially or totally nude, sometimes dressed only in a corset or black fishnet stockings. The women are very much “the lady next door,” with body types that range from slim to lush.

The New York City described by Morten Andersen in Jetlag and Alkohol is brutal, tragic, funny, filthy, and beautiful from the inside out, which is how Andersen experiences it, as a fearless explorer with a sincere desire to hear the stories of its inhabitants and to send them back out into the world as hauntingly beautiful black and white images. Taken in 1990 and 1991, Andersen's photographs depict the denizens of dark alleys, half-empty subway cars, all-night diners, and cheap bars with the gritty poetry of a Tom Waits song. With an introductory text in English by Terje Thorsen.
