Till minnet av mig själv. (In Memory of Myself)

STRöMHOLM, Christer

Stockholm. Nordisk Rotogravyr. 1965
A good copy of Christer Strömholm's first monograph.

Award-winning Swedish photographer, Christer Strömholm was born in 1918 in Stockholm; he was a major force in Swedish photography. Director of Fotoskolan in Stockholm, he trained over 1200 students, many who became leading Scandinavian photographers. He died in 2002 after a prolonged illness.

This copy with Strömholm's postcard announcing his 1965 exhibition Riksfotoutställningen addressed to influential art and photography critic Ulf Hård af Segerstad; Segerstad was clearly an early admirer of Strömholm's work.
pp. (8), (16 plate leaves). 8vo. Illustrated with black and white photographs; text in Swedish. Original publisher's pictorial printed wrappers with monochrome photographs to front and rear covers.
