Oberg PhotoGraphics Photo & Art blog

I started writing a photo-and-other-art blog in May 2009. You’ll find it here. It contains a mixture of articles and video about my own works, exhibitions and thoughts and, on the other hand, about other artists’ creations.

From August 2018 that blog will deal exclusively with the latter and under “About the Works” here, I will write only about what relates to my own works.

So there is now a clear division of labour between the two.

I see myself not as an art critic but an art recommender. I don’t have a lot of readers but it’s pure positive energy to write about those whom I have come across and cherish – contemporary masters as well as younger, less known talents.

Aren’t we all happy when someone pays attention to what we do and perhaps recommend us to others?

Photography is very much about “see what I have seen” and a good text, some images or perhaps a short video can do the same. It also helps me to sort out impressions from art fairs and other events and reflect on what I’ve seen, what inspired me and why I was more attracted to some works rather than others.

Here a small video from the 2017 Venice Biennale of a “wooww” experience I felt when bumping into MacArthur Binion’s fascinating works for the first time. (I like to explore video as an effective way to convey art experiences).

Here is the short post about Binion.
