Exhibition: Behind The Facade, Fotografisk Center, Copenhagen – June 7 through August 12, 2012

By Birgitta Lund


Work from my new project THE GARDEN (2012) is included in a group exhibition at Fotografisk Center in Copenhagen, Denmark.


The Garden is a series of photographs shot in Tivoli Gardens – an old amusement park in the middle of Copenhagen. Here people of all different nationalities and ethnicities meet in a world of fantasy. An imaginary Orient, where lights, colors, fake palaces and minarets are the backdrop of the place. It’s a surreal world, yet it mirrors the dreams and fears of life outside the entrance.
