6 October 2009 - 7 February 2010. The Louisiana Museum of Modern Art presents an exhibition of 200 photographs taken by activist photographer Jacob Holdt. Holdt has been capturing 'behind-the-facade' images of America since the 1970s, focusing in particular on poor black communities. He has built up a huge stockpile of photographs over the last 40 years, many of which have never been exhibited in public before. The Louisiana has been granted exclusive access to Holdt's archive, and this exhibition offers the viewer a glimpse into an urban world of junkies, ghettoes and homeless people. Behind the despondency and suffering on the streets however, can be seen random acts of kindness, the occasional glimmer of hope.
Tues-Fri 11.00-22.00, Sat-Sun 11.00-18.00
