Photograph - BowlDesigner: Maja Flink
Measurements: 33.5 x 43.5
Photograph titled Bowl made by the Swedish photographer Maja Flink. Maja’s personal work is dealing with family ties, close relationships and her own experiences. Actually the porcelain bowl used to belong to her grandmother.
As Maja says: “Photography has many functions but for me it´s primarily a way to remember rather than to capture certain feelings and experiences. I´ve never been a particularly spontaneous photographer. The images usually come after some time and reflection.”
Like many other photographers Maja divides her time between commercial commissions and personal projects and portraits are central for her in both areas. We immediately fell in love with Bowl which we saw in her book FU and we asked her to make two completely new portraits of objects, especially for Stilleben. Each photograph is printed on real photo paper and only made in 50 copies.
Maja Flink is an international photographer based in Copenhagen - amongst others she has portrayed stars like Gwyneth Paltrow and Reese Witherspoon.
