Forces that Create and Mould the Land by Hans Strand

Event info

We are proud to present our first Major Speaker for 2021 in the name of Hans Strand who will give a Retrospective on Saturday 27th March 2021 via Zoom, from his homeland in Sweden.

Hans internationally awarded landscape photography is seldom a portrait of a place, but an expression of forces that create and mould a landscape. His pictures, frozen in a static frame, tell a story of movement, time and evolution.

Lately his photography has also taken a course away from the untouched and wild nature and focused more on people’s influences on ecosystems.

Photographs of water pollution and the visual magic of manmade agricultural landscapes have become an important ingredient in Hans in recent work.

Hans Strand is frequently published in international photo and art magazines and his work has created a worldwide following.

He has won thirteen international awards, including the Hasselblad Master Award in 2008. He has published seven books, often with themes relating to the environment and peoples relations to nature and landscapes.
