STOCKHOLM.- Moderna Museet is presenting the history of photography with this year’s radical rehanging of its permanent collection. 16 April was the opening day for the second instalment of Another Story: See the World!, including works by iconic photographers such as Irving Penn, Diane Arbus and Christer Strömholm. A total of 545 works are now on show from one of Europe’s finest collections of photography.

See the World! is the second instalment of Another Story, Moderna Museet’s major presentation of photography from its permanent collection. See the World! features documentary photography and photo journalism, surrealistic photography and pioneers such as Diane Arbus, Irving Penn and Christer Strömholm. The period covers a world war and many events that changed our perspective on life, both externally and internally. In the seven decades from 1920 to 1980, history was rewritten several times over, and the camera was the main tool for documenting and exploring. In See the World! visitors will find:

• Works by Christer Strömholm and Diane Arbus presented in two separate rooms. Christer Strömholm’s photographs and methods have inspired many Swedish photographers. Diane Arbus’ style was seminal to a whole new generation and she is one of the most famous post-war photographers.

• Irving Penn, one of the leading fashion photographers and a key figure in developing new styles in fashion photography. Thanks to a unique gift from Irving Penn himself, Moderna Museet has 100 photographs by Penn. The donation was made in memory of Irving Penn’s Swedish-born wife, Lisa Fonssagrives-Penn.

• Larry Clark’s incisive, controversial pictures of his drug-abusing friends in his hometown Tulsa, and Nan Goldin’s nude colour photographs.

• The reportage photographers Henri Cartier-Bresson, Julia Pirotte and Robert Capa, who have formed our impressions of historic events such as the Spanish Civil War and the Second World War.

• Surrealism through Brassaï, Henri Cartier-Bresson, André Kertész and Man Ray, who were early to realise the potential of photography to portray dreamlike scenes and unexpected encounters governed by chance and subconscious processes.
