“These pictures are from every time and from every place. When I look at my contact sheets I often lose myself in memories that I share with the people I photographed. Throughout the years these pictures have become my private diary, with a taste and a language of its own. A small world inhabited by my very own, very real people. For me, it is interesting to find that condensed and tender moment. It’s an entry into what I’m doing today; discovering desires and memories from the past and mixing them with what I encounter in the present. It’s all about identifying and presence.” – Anders Petersen

About the Artists
Anders Petersen (b. 1944 in Stockholm) is undoubtedly one of the world’s most important photographers of the last 40 years. In 1978 he published ‘Café Lehmitz’, which established his international reputation and is now recognised as one of the classic photobooks of the 20th century. In 2003 he was appointed Professor of Photography at the University of Göteborg. He regularly runs workshops and holds exhibitions throughout Europe, Asia and the USA and has received numerous grants and awards since the 1970s.
These include the ‘Photographer of the Year’ award in France and the ‘Erich Salomon Award’ in Germany. He has also been shortlisted for the ‘Deutsche Börse’ award run by The Photographers Gallery, London.

Jacob Aue Sobol is a member of Magnum Photos. He is represented by Yossi Milo Gallery, New York; the Rita Castelotte Gallery, Madrid; and RTR Gallery, Paris.
A winner of the ‘European Publishers Award For Photography’ and of a ‘World Press Photo Award’, he gained international recognition after the publication of his book Sabine which was the result of a three year period spent in a small settlement on the East Coast of Greenland. He lived there with his Greenlandic girlfriend, Sabine, and her family, living the life of a fisherman and hunter but also taking photographs. In Spring 2006 he moved to Tokyo, staying there 18 months before returning to Copenhagen, where he now lives and works. He is currently working on the project Arrivals and Departures – a journey from Moscow to Beijing – in co-operation with Leica Camera.
