The photographs in this year's New Nordic Photography take two directions. One is documentary photography, critical and scrutinizing, examining among other things environmental awareness and globalization. The other is photography that gives shape to personal existential experience, shedding light on norms, memories, and the construction of identity. This year's participants are distinguished by their socially critical gaze. The photographs, irrespective of their motif or theme, possess a consciously subjective quality. Young Nordic photography reflect upon the myth surrounding photography's claim to the truth in an attempt to approach the multi-facetted reality.
