Monkey, The Lake and Other Lies, Per Morten Abrahamsen
A prolific name in Danish photography, Per Morten Abrahamsen’s radical and instinctive methods have earned him a reputation as a true master of staged portraiture and the tableau narrative. As a photographer, Abrahamsen is responsible for iconic images of Lars Von Trier, Bjarne Riis, CV Jørgensen, Mærsk among many others, and is on a constant search for the defining uniqueness of his subjects, while simultaneously casting them as props in his internal and autobiographical storylines.
Monkey, The Lake and other Lies is a collection of Per Morten Abrahamsen’s recent work, and serves as a powerful display of the central voice that cuts through and binds together the immense artistic range of his imagery.
