The exhibition is a photographic survey of Oddner’s career and an introduction to his working method. For the latter, a smaller, personal cabinet has been added to the exhibition spaces, in which Oddner presents a compilation of unfinished, existing material. The selection of images provides a survey of Oddner’s extensive production, spanning press images, travelogues, portraits and still lifes. Among his most recent works is a series of still lifes with umbrellas from 2001, showing his continued interest in form.
Born in 1923, Georg Oddner lives and works in Malmö, Sweden. Starting as a jazz drummer, his career as a photographer began in the 1950s. Georg Oddner is one of the Swedish photographers who has achieved world-wide recognition.
