Per Zennström & Lennart Sjöberg

The collaboration between now established fashion photographers Per Zennström and Lennart Sjöberg resulted in staged black-and-white portraits of participants in the Göteborg Carnival, using the façade of the Konstmuseum (just on the other side of these walls) as a backdrop. The series presents an eerie landscape of faces bare and made-up, expressions natural and studied, costumes simple and complex, seemingly drawing from resurrected folk traditions.
