Anders PetersenBook - 2014
Born in Stockholm in 1944, Petersen studied photography under Christer Str#65533;mholm at his famous Fotoskalen from 1966 to 1968. He is perhaps best known for his book of reportage, Caf#65533; Lehmitz, which was first published in 1978 and is now recognized as one of the classics of post-war European photography. In it, he captured a time and place now long gone --a bar on Hamburg's Reeperbahn teeming with prostitutes, dropouts, and the fringe elements that went to make up a warm-hearted family of non-conformists with whom he identified. In 1970, he co-founded SAFTRA, the Stockholm group of photographers, and has since gone on taking photographs in his own unique fashion, following the rhythms of his own life.
