In connection with the „5. European Month of Photography“, The Gallery Swedish Photography – in cooperation with the Nordic Embassies in Berlin– presents a panel discussion on "Nordic Photography" on Saturday, 24 November 2012 at 5 p.m. Inspired by Lars Tunbjörk’s "Vinter" series, which is currently on show at Swedish Photography, the central topic of the discussion will be the “Nordic Light“. Together with photographers from all five Nordic countries, we want to seek answers the question whether and how the seasonal changes of the lighting conditions in Scandinavia influence the photographers. Participating photographers: Joakim Eskildsen, DK Riitta Päiväläinen, FIN Katrin Elvarsdottir, IS Nina Strand, NO Lars Tunbjörk, SE The discussion will take place in English.
