In “Family Portraits”, Inka and Niclas, along with their sons, collect self-portraits taken in overly romantic scenery. They are wearing clothing that bounce the light of the flash back into the camera lens, making them anonymous as they radiate in the photograph.
The work is about the present day ritual of travelling and photographing – photographs as proof. It’s about the depiction and consumption of grand scenery, as well as the camera and the magic moment of exposure.

About the artist
Inka (*1985, Finland) and Niclas (*1984, Sweden) Lindergård is an artist duo. The materiality of photography is crucial in their work which tells of the contemporary perception processes of nature and the connection of the photographic medium with the stylisation of landscape.
