Is Gerry Johansson the World's Most Antisocial Photographer?



One of Sweden's most acclaimed photographers, Gerry Johansson takes photos of places created by people, but only when they're totally empty. The geometric forms revealed by his mastery of black and white photography highlight the residential or industrial places that he captures.


His work caught the eye of famous photography organisation the Hasselblad Foundation. Johansson has exhibited at places like the Museum of Art in Matsuyama, Japan, or the GunGallery and the Modern Museum of Art in Stockholm, Sweden.
