Bruno Ehrs

Ehrs has been one of Sweden’s leading photographers for several decades now, once he moved away from his profession as an architect in the mid 1970s. His eye for geometry and engineering is however very much present in his photography, something Ehrs has emphasised. ”I always try to find the geometric lines in the picture. If you move 10 cm to the right or left, the entire balance in the image can be lost”.

His portfolio contains architecture, portraits, still life, food, and travel photography with one common denominator: stripped-down simplicity where nothing has been left to chance. His portraits of the Swedish royal couple also featured on a set of post stamps in 2010. 

Solo exhibitions include Moderna Museet, Stockholm 1987, Centre of Photography, Athen 2002 and more.
