Stockholm is just the place for museum and art lovers. There are hordes of fantastic collections to be enjoyed all over the city. A city favorite is the iconic Fotografiska in the Södermalm district of Stockholm, a potent centre for contemporary photography. The building itself is worth a visit. An Art Nouveau style building from the early 1900s, it was once used for the customs control of goods. The original brick facade has been retained while the interior has been renovated to showcase intriguing collections all year round. Some celebrate well known artists while others promote new talent. The restaurant at the top floor offers delicious food, coffee as well as panoramic views of the water and neighboring islands of Djurgården and Skeppsholmen. No wonder that the seats by the windows go the fastest!
Last weekend Mr.A and I went for a visit and spent almost all day there. “Inside Out” is a series of x-ray prints by photographer Nick Veasey wherein he explores what things actually look like deep within. It is an eye-opener for sure. The artist works with both unusual subjects as well as everyday objects. What surprised me most was the scale as seashells and flowers featured in the shots, but there was also a full size bus and an airplane! The artist works in a giant workshop which is isolated & insulated to prevent radiations. For the same reason, skeletons instead of humans are used in Nick’s work. The subjects are x-rayed (is that a verb?) in one or several frames depending on their size. The output reveals their ‘gut’ in splendid ways, enough to make us visitors ponder over them for hours… 📸
I will soon write about the other major exhibition that I saw that day, quite different from this one, but just as enthralling 🙂 Have you been to Fotografiska? What exhibitions did you enjoy? You haven’t? Well, then you simply must!
Have a happy week ahead!!
Azulejos are beautiful blue-and-white tiles adorning many a mural in Portugal. While traveling around Lisbon, Porto and Faro, we’ve come across several churches, restaurants, train stations and such, covered with gorgeous scenes in blue and white tones, each telling a different story, each unique in its details. You know how I love collecting pictures of street art over my travels. These murals were in a category of their own. I immediately fell in love with these works of art.
Have you been to Portugal? What did you think?
