Hi friend

Welcome to shoot # 33
– a digital photo gift from Oberg Photographics – a moment of meditation with which I wish you a good weekend and “weekbegin.”

Thousands have been standing where the picture above is taken – fascinated by the atmosphere close to St. Marco Square and with the St. Giorgio Church in the distance. But few may have taken it with this sense of water, clouds and air inside the image – ephemeral as Venice is.

I’m exploring the Biennale – a world art event in its last week – called “All The World’s Futures”. My preliminary thoughts here will be elaborated shortly. In my view, this Biennale wasn’t as inspiring as earlier years. It is more about the national past than the global future.

It may – may – indicate the relative decline of Western art. The pavilions and artists from Iran, China, Japan, South Korea etc. being way more interesting than, say, the UK, Denmark, France, Holland, etc.

The “flipping” Global Art Magazine
Wouldn’t it be great to have one (free) place at your fingertips – full of exciting articles, photos, videos and books? That’s what the online “flipping” GlobalArt Magazine that I curate is all about. For instance read about  photography at the Biennale in Venice (where I will be next week). Try it, browse and follow!

Looking for gifts this time of the year?
Online art sales is growing fast but human communication is still number one. If you’d like to exhibit, lease or acquire a piece on show at the moment or from my homepage (also with new editions), write or call me and I shall be happy to answer any questions you may have.

Is there a more lasting gift than a unique photo in a limited edition, signed and numbered and with print documentation? I do the entire shoot-to-print process myself and the works are only sold by me. That’s your guarantee of both quality and cheapest price.

Close to southern Sweden? Come around
I’m back in Lund on November 24. “Pictures At An Exhibition” is on show at my studio together with the “Rouen Cathedral Suite # 1-10” inspired by Roy Lichtenstein’s 1969-series based on Claude Monet’s impressionist paintings is also on show. More on the idea and how it was executed on my art blog.

My best
Jan Oberg
