Three photographers, three oeuvres, three lives. The camera was the tool they used to explore a modern world, focusing on different kinds of outsidership and sub-cultures. Diane Arbus and Lisette Model developed their respective styles of portraiture in postwar USA, while Swedish Christer Strömholm is known primarily for his portrayal of transsexuals in Paris. Common to all three photographers is their tactful and sensitive relationship to their subjects, far from the spectacular or speculative.

A catalogue will be available for the exhibition. 160 pages and some 30 images.
Anna Tellgren will give an introduction in the exhibition gallery on 1 October at 2 pm. During the exhibition period, four discussions on the exhibition and a seminar will also be held.
Curator: Anna Tellgren, Moderna Museet
