The start of something new — FlakPhoto Digest.
We’re developing a new project, a weekly newsletter focused on photography + visual culture recommendations carefully curated from across the Web. You know, the good stuff that deserves a closer look. FlakPhoto Digest is currently in closed beta and will be available to the public later this year. You can request an invite by subscribing below.
Magnus Bjerk (b. 1980) is a visual artist working within a strict, clinical framework. His photographs often consist of staged situations blended with a non-staged documentary-style approach. In both cases, he aspires to elevate situations, actions and people beyond our everyday perception of them. Bjerk searches out people and objects that seem to be located outside of their usual context, as if they were put there by mistake. In these settings, he produces situations that radiate an ambivalent atmosphere, acting as intermediate stages between the conscious and the unsuspecting. Magnus has exhibited extensively internationally, is represented in numerous state and private art collections and has received several grants/stipends.
