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.
