Photo exhibition by Lennart Jonasson to be held at the airport
Beginning June 1, the exhibition “Wild Cards” with photographs by Lennart Jonasson will be on display in the terminal.
Lennart Jonasson is one of the most respected photographers in the northern Swedish province of Jämtland and a well-known name in Sweden. He began his career as an employee at Swedish newspapers such as Aftonbladet, Dagens Nyheter and Östersundsposten. Since 1978, he has been a professional photographer, with popular exhibitions held across the country. He has also won the Swedish prize Årets Bild for the best photo pf the year.
Storsjöyran in Östersund, one of Sweden’s oldest musical festivals, let Lennart Johansson set up a photo studio in its restaurant for performing artists in 1993. With his unassuming personality and a few crates of beer, he got well-known artists to pose for the camera in an unexpectedly relaxed manner. This was the start of his popular “backstage series”, which he added to over 20 years. You can now see these wonderful pictures in our unique exhibition, “Wild Cards”.
The exhibition will be on display at Åre Östersund Airport from June 1 to August 8.
