Dorothée Nilsson Gallery : Gerry Johansson : Ehime


Dorothée Nilsson Gallery presents until April 20th an exhibition of photographs by Gerry Johansson.

Gerry Johansson is known for capturing towns scattered across the globe, particularly in the United States, Sweden, and Germany. His primary objective is to showcase the influence individuals have on their surrounding environments and how cities evolve over time. His independent, layered visual language is the central thread that connects the places aesthetically with each other. At the same time, it allows the viewer to decode deep cultural differences down to the slightest material detail of what is shown, be it the outline of a hill or a roof’s construction line.

In his series “Ehime”, he focuses his creative energy on unveiling the environment surrounding the Japanese people, as opposed to the people themselves. He works with three natural elements – rock, water, and foliage – to mirror the exceptional beauty of the region. He takes his camera to the rocks and mountain streams of Nametoko Valley, deep inside forests teeming with life, and to the waters of the Seto Inland Sea. Metropolitan scenes also captivate him. He turns his lens toward encapsulating urban harshness, ironically contrasting it with the unexpected relief brought by the green and foliage.
