About Henrik Strömberg
Henrik is a magician of metamorphosis
“The subjects of my imagery are less significant than my wish to prompt a deeper sense of reflection, a grasp of the intangible, or a glimpse of the other.”
Previously studying in London and Prague, Henrik Strömberg works in Berlin mainly as a photographer. His creative process usually encompasses two phases. The first step is to remove images from its context and expected narrative, and the second is to use the material as building blocks to create something that feels altogether new. The result is subjects that possess an unexpected shape and silhouette with an aesthetic that feels poetic, minimal and considered. Strömberg has created three photographs for Absolut Art as part of an ongoing series called “Before The Fact”. They depict places and objects in isolation, and convey a sense of timelessness through the work’s negative, black and white aesthetic.
