Anna Seifert
Soul
The image Soul depicts a human in a body of water that is covered by what seems like a pink cloud. I particularly like this image as it reflects my own imaginative view of what the soul could embody. There is no true form to what our souls look like, Anna Seifert captures an essence of what could be. The image is calming through the presence of the pink cloud and the water surrounding the person. As the viewer, I am able to get lost in my thoughts of our formless soul.

Marcus Nyberg
Old Lover
Old Lover, caught my attention due to the movement of the image. Even though the people in the photograph are sitting, Nyberg was able to create a dynamic atmosphere. The man who stares at the viewer enables one to immediately connect with the image as if one were standing in the room with him. The soft hue creates a sense of warmness, enhancing the feeling of the viewer’s presence.
a perfect mixture of being part of the image and being an observer is created.

Beata Rydén
Hypnagogia
The dreamlike state that Rydén seeks to portray is strongly felt in this image. There is a definitive sense of disrupting reality. As the viewer, I feel taken away by the icy blue yet pulled back in by the human figure. Rydén has captured what seems to be an image out of a dream. The darkness that nearly engulfs the image reminds one of sleepy half closed eyes, drifting off or slowly waking up. She leaves the viewer to decide which one it is.

Andreas von Gegerfelt
Folkrace
This black and white image speaks to me because of the composition. It seems as if the photograph were taken whilst quickly walking by, capturing the woman’s face expression and her surroundings just as they were. Due to these factors, I feel that the image is true and not tampered with. It portrays a single moment in time that Gegerfelt witnessed. The photograph reminds me of photos taken by Dorothea Lange, who captured people’s facial expressions with an essence of truth.

For the first time ever you can see one of Swedens most beloved artist, Caroline af Ugglas, showing her photos in piQmo gallery. Luckily Caroline said yes when we asked her if she wanted to participate in our project “known-unknown photographer”. The project aims to famous people not associated with photography taking their own photographs and showing them with piQmo gallery were they also are sold.

Her photo art will be displayed in piQmo gallery and for the first time at Affordable Art Fair in Stockholm October 1st. We are showing three of her photos and they are limited in 25 each.

In common with Caroline af Ugglas we think art should be reachable for everyone and we want to give everybody a chance to buy with reasonable prices.
