Per Bak Jensen // Hallands Konstmuseum

26 OCTOBER 2019 – 08 MARCH 2020

Photographer Per Bak Jensen (b. 1949) has been a pioneer in Danish photography in a number of respects. When he began his studies in Copenhagen in 1980, he was the first photographer to be admitted to the Academy of Fine Arts.

His first exhibition in 1988 was entitled The Enigmatic City (Den gådefulde by) and depicted Copenhagen in black and white images in a way that has since become a well-known sign for his work; a desire to discover or reach through the photograph hidden sides of the world, “to see the world for real”, as he himself puts it.

Today, Per Bak Jensen works with both color and black and white photography. He has had a large number of exhibitions around the world. In recent years, his images have risen in format and gained a deeper blackness with existential signs.

The exhibition at Halland Art Museum presents pictures taken in Halland before the inauguration of the museum. All works are part of the museum’s collection, one of which is a donation from the New Carlsberg Foundation.
