ANDERS PETERSEN // CAFE LEHMITZ- NOVEMBER 2013

It was in Hamburg that Anders Petersen immersed himself in nightlife and counterculture at the age of 18. He became a regular guest at the Lehmitz café, where he found the theme, the settings and the models for his first series of photographs, which won him immediate recognition and has since become the emblem of all future developments in his work.

A student of Christer Strömholm, the greatest Swedish photographer of the time, Anders Petersen shares with him a similar approach to the world and a similar aesthetic, essentially that of black and white photography with the sharpness and dynamism of the snapshot, but also a respect and concern for the other, which are fundamental when it comes to portraits, another major theme common to the two photographers.
