HØSTUTSTILLINGEN – THE AUTUMN EXHIBIT 1975

I have taken part in this annual autumn-event about 6 or 7 times since I believe. but this, in 1975, was my debut in a national exhibition.

In the autumn that year I was in Indonesia  for two months and just managed to see the exhibition for about an hour on the last day, a Sunday, before it closed. It was unusual for art-photographers to be accepted at the autumn exhibition at the time so I was really pleased.

In 1979 I was asked to be part of the national jury, as a representative for FFF, so things moved fast, ..in my eyes at least.

A friend had posed for this image, taken in the gymnastic hall at the F.G.O.  An experimental college we both attended (70-73). Looking for this work in my storage, I found others from the same period that was good for me to revisit.

The 50 year anniversary for this really interesting school-experiment is coming up later this year. (NRK film: Opprørskolen by Elsa Kvamme)
Here’s the school´s annual group-photo 71, taken by Lasse Kwetzinsky. Many cool and interesting people in their formative years. Double-click on it to get a full screen.
