Torben Eskerod is widely known for his work with one of the oldest genres in the history of photography: the portrait. Today, we can all take a portrait of ourselves and each other with a quick click on our phone. But what does the portrait really tell us about human beings? Eskerod has photographed everything from the Queen of Denmark to death masks, and for him the portrait is a way into subjects such as memory and spirituality. The talk originates from The royal library’s permanent photo exhibition The Camera and Us, and especially the room The portrait for the many – To stand still.
Torben Eskerod will be in conversation with photo curator Charlotte Præstegaard Schwartz.
