Mikael Jansson's Iggy Pop exhibition—his fourth at CFHILL, Stockholm—opens tonight.
From the press release: 'Mikael Jansson has been one of the world’s leading photographers for four decades now, and it would actually be easier to list the models and actors he hasn’t photographed. In connection to The Polar Music Prize 2022 awarded to Iggy Pop we will show photos by Mikael Jansson in an exhibition curated by Greger Ulf Nilsson. The photos are both from the first time Mikael Jansson photographed Iggy Pop in September 1977, at the Stockholm Concert Hall as well as photos from a later session the two had 2010 which shot in the manner of a classic fashion editorial, are nothing short of epic—the gritty punk rock attitude of one of the biggest stars of all time, paired with the sombre elegance of a perfectly lit studio shoot in black and white, makes this series one-of-a-kind.’
