Lars Tunbjörk (1956-2015) is one of Sweden’s most internationally renowned photographers. His photographs reveal warmth and humor and a deep fascination for people’s loneliness and longing for meaning. Tunbjörk's work encourages the viewer to pause and think, and evokes a range of emotions, including happiness, recognition, sadness, and anger.
Following his sudden passing in 2015, the Lars Tunbjörk Foundation was established to preserve the entirety of Tunbjörk’s body of work.
Lars Tunbjörk has been exhibited extensively in Sweden and abroad. He is represented in collections around the world, including at Moderna Museet in Stockholm, Maison Européenne de la Photographie in Paris, and The Museum of Modern Art (MoMA) in New York. Tunbjörk published more than 10 photography books.
The exhibition is produced by the Embassy of Sweden in Washington, D.C. in collaboration with the Lars Tunbjörk Foundation. On display to the public in House of Sweden until August 27.
Update on August 18, 2023: Due to the increased terrorist threat level against Sweden, House of Sweden will be closed to the public during weekends, until further notice.
Sweden has diplomatic relations with almost all States in the world. It has embassies and consulates in around half of these. Sweden's foreign representation consists of approximately 100 missions abroad and 350 honorary consulates.
