WHAT’S HANGING

INTERNATIONAL National Portrait Gallery King Edwards Terrace Parks ACT 2600 Canberra, Australia   Ingvar Kenne Citizen November 2, 2012 – January 27, 2013 Swedish-born Australian photographer Ingvar Kenne captures both individuality and shared human experience in his ongoing portrait project, Citizen. This collection of striking portraits was taken between 1997–2011 across Australia, USA, China, Laos, and Papua New Guinea. In Citizen, we meet a nun, prostitute, factory worker, famous actors, tribal members, and more. By applying the same photographic parameters and treating each of his sitters as equal, Kenne creates an intimate collective of what he refers to as “fellow man.” It is this notion that reminds us that our unique experience of life is something that we all share. Ingvar Kenne, born in 1965, currently lives between Sydney and New York. He studied photography at the University of Gothenburg and exhibits internationally. Kenne was the winner of the National Photographic Portrait Prize 2009 and a finalist in the 2007, 2010, and 2012 Prizes. The Citizen portraits were photographed on medium format color negative film using a Mamiya 6 camera. They have been printed as Type C digital prints. The photographs, on loan from the artist and three from the National Portrait Gallery’s collection, are accompanied by Kenne’s descriptive captions.
