STOCKHOLM SECRETS { TRE }







Paolo Roversi's Secrets at Fotografiska

was the most enticing Stockholm secret

I'd been waiting all autumn to uncover it seems…

We went round slowly,

silently, almost meditatively.

I honestly don't remember an exhibition

with such a tangible atmosphere,

beckoning to slow down

and drink in so much beauty

- familiar images

that were suddenly enveloped in a new type of intimacy,

others I'd never seen before,

leaving me to wonder how that was possible.





A glass of wine and the other two exhibitions

before returning once more, 

almost in an attempt to hold on to every trickling drop

of the magical aesthetic. 




A chance to share our secrets, too,






and pick up a few that are still waiting 

to be opened at Christmas.







Taking home Roversi's words -

"The images we create do not come from the outside world

but from inside, from our spirit,

and I feel that it is more correct to say

that we give a picture, rather than we take a picture.

Every photograph enters the world with love,

where the heart can see deeper than the mind, 

beyond appearances.

In my work there is no logic;

the reason stays out of the studio door,

leaving space to emotions, feelings and dreams."

  2. if this is what a lack of reason and logic looks like, bring it on! thanks for taking us with you.

    p.s.
    i read 'trickling drop' as 'tickling drop.' i like both.

    1. Trickling & tickling,
      very much so, yes :)
      I'm so gasping for lack of reason and logic right now
      and a bit of downtime at Christmas…

      Hope you're having a light&bright pre-Christmas time, x
