The Orcadian have recently A Swedish Orcadian: images from the published works of Gunnie Moberg – a book of books…
A Swedish Orcadian features the photographic work of the late Gunnie Moberg.
Born in Sweden, Moberg moved to Orkney in 1976 and created an outstanding photographic archive of the northern landscapes of Orkney, Shetland and the Faroe Islands.
A Swedish Orcadian visits fifteen books she published with selected photographs, letters, newspaper clippings and reviews.
With aerial photographs of archaeological sites and coastlines and close studies of stones on the shoreline, the selected photographs show her attention to line and light at any scale. Moberg’s portraits of artists and writers show the cultural significance of her collection.
A Swedish Orcadian offers an insight into the work of a remarkable photographer and the simplicity and beauty that she saw in the north. Many of her books are now out of print and one edition can fetch four figure sums at auction.See here for more
