The jury’s motivation

“Through close and timeless images, Simon Johansson tells a moment at a time about a city in transition. His camera meets the gaze of both large and small Stockholmers, portraying their living environment with tenderness and humor. In a classic and respectful manner, often in black-and-white photographs, he highlights details of everyday life in the city that evoke wonder and warmth.”

The exhibition is curated by Anders Petersen and printed by Nikko Knösch.
