Last week Marie Hald’s exhibition ‘A New Me’ opened in the Swedish Museum of Photography Fotografiska¬†in Stockholm. The works is an inside look at the famous weight loss camps in USA.

The exhibition will be there until September 2nd 2018.

In the company of struggling people, the forces of nature pulsate between magnificent pink rocks that have been rounded by the ravages of time. The people are participants in one of Utah’s many so-called “Fat Camp’s” where new guests are constantly checking in for a few weeks, or up to half a year, of food and exercise programmes. Weight loss camps have become well known worldwide through the TV programme “Biggest Loser”.¬†Marie Hald, the 2018 Young Nordic Photographer of the Year has, with respect and artistic flair, captured their battle to lose weight. The exhibition A New Me is a story about people who have all been diagnosed by their doctor as being morbidly obese. A story about the struggle for survival.
