Thomas Wågström at Fotografiska - An observer of the visible and the invisible.
A unique and magical pictorial world. That the author Karl Ove Knausgård has written the exhibition text and the preface to the book says a lot about Thomas Wågström’s ability to attract artists with an eye for detail.

About

A unique and magical world of images.  Thomas Wågström has an ability to attract other artists with a sense for details. Hence, the introductions in his books as well as the exhibition text of On Earth are written by another creative mind – author Karl Ove Knausgård.

Throughout the exhibition On Earth, Fotografiska captures the poetic and unique world of images that Thomas Wågström has created. Through his consistent and magical imagery, he has created a well-known and honourable name for himself in Swedish photography circles for a long time. He is an observer of the visible as well as the invisible and subsequently creates the unexpected. Wågström himself says that he has always been interested in examining the introspective – the perceptual experiences and power within. He sees his images as a review with an existential tone, concerning universal fundamental conditions within a human being.

The exhibition contains three series that, by the strain of the mind, are reflections of each other. Back of necks, clouds and views from above are exhibited, side by side, in different formats yet with the same means of expression. Suddenly, a wrinkle on an old mans neck connects with a series of clouds that plays on the same string as the foot-prints of the assembling of two women in the snow. Everything is connected. The effect of this realization creates a thoughtful reflection of our time On Earth.
