安德斯·彼得森 & 雅各布·奥厄·索博尔
安德斯·彼得森（Anders Petersen）和雅各布·奥厄·索博尔（Jacob Aue Sobol），两位蜚声国际的私摄影（Personal Documentary）摄影师第一次联袂展出他们的作品。初见他们的影像或许会有冷酷无情之感，然而在表象之下却是对所感之实而非所见之实强烈和温情的描绘。图像被处理地很柔软，但同时伴随着狂热和某种紧张传递着他们的渴望、好奇和强烈的存在感。
瑞典的传奇摄影师，安德斯·彼得森（1944）以其和陌生人的沟通能力并为他们拍摄亲密而与众不同的肖像闻名。关于他的创造性作品，彼得森说：“我所涉及的是关于私人的纪实摄影。这真的是个挑战 – 在场，却又保持距离。”

Anders Petersen and Jacob Aue Sobol, the two internationally highly acclaimed personal documentary photographers are showing
their work together for the first time. At first glance their images may come across as hard and merciless, but running just beneath
the surface-or skin if you like – is an intense, warm depiction of not so much a likeness of reality, but what is felt as real. The
images are executed with tenderness, but also with a fever and certain nervousness expressing longing, curiousness and strong
Petersen and Sobol both come from the documentary photography tradition, which they have developed into a diary format of
personal documentary, their very personal reflections on life, people they meet and the world of today. It is the meeting with the
person or place itself that is the important not the photography or its aesthetics. It is as much about the one who is seen, as the
one seeing, portraits and self-portraits all in one. It is about life, about raising questions, but it is not about providing answers,
and it is about getting to the core of experiences rather than showing a likeness. "The reality is a hype anyway".
The Swedish photographer and a living legend Anders Petersen (1944) is known for his ability to find a common language with
complete strangers, thus creating intimate, distinct human portraits. About his creative work Petersen says: "The stuff I do is a
kind of private documentary photography. It is a real challenge – to be present, but maintain the distance".
The Danish photographer Jacob Aue Sobol (1976) uses camera as a tool in order to create contact, closeness and intimacy
with people and random places, even if only for a short period of time. Sobol compares taking pictures with hunting: "
Relationship that hunters establish with the surrounding nature is very important. This feeling has left a great impact on my
life and work".
