Moment is proud to present Almost Perfect 

 

 

https://almostperfectproject.com/

 

Almost Perfect is a project in photography and film by the Nordic photographers’ collective Moment, in collaboration with curator Susanne Fessé.

 

In Almost Perfect the six photographers from Moment will explore the polarized images of their home countries in six unique photographic projects. Each project takes a starting point in one or more of the traits that we see as defining for the Nordic societies: equality, individualism, appearance, style, secularism, the welfare state and our connection with nature. Each artist interprets their chosen theme in light of these core values to reflect today’s realities in the Nordic countries.

 

The first exhibition on the tour is Sune Jonsson’s Center for Documentary Photography, Umeå Sweden, opening October 20th 2018.

On October 18th the seminar “Perfect Nordic” where the artists will give artist talks and debates will also take place at Sune Jonsson’s Center for Documentary Photography.
