Lightning Appears For A Clear Sky

Thobias Fäldt & Klara Källström

Opening Reception Friday July 20, 2012 6 - 10pm

The Popular Workshop
1173 Sutter Street / San Francisco / CA 94109


The Popular Workshop is proud to present “Lightning Appears For A Clear Sky”, the first major American exhibition of Stockholm-based photographers Thobias Fäldt and Klara Källström. Noted as representatives of an emerging generation of European photographers, the artists and their collective works exist not only within a traditional realm of fine art, but also explore photojournalism, editorial, publishing and commercial art.

Their trademark use of flash photography combined with their seemingly mundane subject matter and environment, results in an abstracted and inherently voyeuristic take on Swedish life. Subtle yet engaging, these lived experiences are decontextualized and presented in retrospect, creating a dream-like, non-linear narrative.


A selection of books, published by their own independent B-B-B-books publishing company, will be also included in the exhibition.

The pair have recently shown at Trafó, House of Contemporary Arts (Budapest). Additionally Thobias has a show at Galeria Plan B (Berlin), while Klara has exhibited at Swedish Museum of Photography (Stockholm), Institut Suédois (Paris), and has permanent artwork in the Stockholm subway.


The Popular Workshop Presents Lightning Appears For A Clear Sky by Thobias Fäldt & Klara Källström. Opening Reception Friday July 20, 2012 6 - 10pm, and runs through September 7, 2012.
