Swedish photographer Kenneth Gustavsson studied at the legendary Christer Strömholm's Fotoskolan in Stockholm in the mid 60s.
Together with his fellow student Anders Petersen he portrayed the Stockholm slums in an exhibition at the Stockholm City Museum in 1969. Travels to Hamburg, Paris, and Mallorca resulted in many of his most exciting photos.
After a decade of photographic silence, Gustavsson was introduced to a new generation of photo enthusiasts by the magazine ETC in 1983 with a 16 page presentation. This became the starting point of a new creative flow. In the following decades, Gustavsson made several trips to cities like Belfast, Chicago, Reykjavik and New York for ETC magazine. In 1984 he was also awarded FOTO magazine’s big prize.
Gustavsson made several separate exhibitions at various museums and galleries in Sweden and Europe and was one of the photographers that represented Swedish and Nordic photography at the following group exhibitions:
Contemporary Black and White Western European
Just Images at PS1 in New York 1985
Fotofest in Houston 1988
150th Anniversary of Photography in Prague 1989
Together with Christer Strömholm and Anders Peterson he made the seminal exhibition Indicier at Kulturhuset in Stockholm 1996.
