Renowned photographer Mikael Jansson exhibits 20-year-old portfolio

When it comes to fashion photography, Mikael Jansson’s portfolio is rather incomparable. He has photographed for more than four decades and can boast some remarkable clients and portraits, like Isabella Rossellini, Kate Moss, Christy Turlington, Iggy Pop, Miuccia Prada, and Penelope Cruz to name a few.

The current exhibition launches today, 6 November, and covers the time from the 90s until today with a great focus on Jansson’s many portraits. It was perhaps the 90s where Jansson flourished the most, with countless shoots for Vogue, Elle, Harper’s Bazaar and many more.

— Working with Mikael Jansson is a privilege. His knack for erasing the barriers between the glamourous and the every day, and the way he is able to so naturally enter into dialogue with timeless artistic principles jointly ensure that nobody views his pictures unmoved. Whether it’s 1994 or 2020, this feels like the perfect choice right now, says Michael Elmenbeck, Creative Director & Head of Exhibitions at CFHILL.

The exhibition entitled Unscripted Scenes: The Art of Mikael is available at CFHILL, Stockholm, until 28 November 2020.


Anders Krisár shows that blood is thicker than water in new exhibition

Stockholm based art space CFHILL is now presenting the new exhibition ”Camera Obscura” by Swedish photographer and sculptor Anders Krisár. The installation also includes paintings from Krisár’s father Mårten Havalai, whose pieces have never been shown publicly before. Both the father’s paintings and the son’s sculptures and photographs circulates around corporeal expression.

In some ways Krisár decided to bring both parents to the showroom. In the piece ”Bronze/Wax” a bronze cast of his deceased mothers face is buried within four large blocks of cream-colored wax. Physical family ties, bodies, life, and death is showcased in the exhibition.

— I’ve long admired my father’s creativity. He’s been an artist since he was young, but his mental illness prevented him from ever making a career of it. This exhibition is a vindication of sorts, albeit in a symbolic sense, Krisár explains.

All the sculptures, paintings, and photographs are showcased at CFHILL until September 26th.
