“We live in a photo-obsessed time today more than ever,” says Johan Sjöström, curator at Gothenburg Museum of Art. Esko Männikkö has been a central figurein Scandinavian photography since the early 1990s, among other things famous for his colour photographs of Finnish bachelors. Time Flies is the first major retrospective exhibition of his work, ranging from 1981 to 2015 in a maximised presentation of 200 pieces of art.“It brings together the neglected, the rugged and the ordinary and explores magic and sadness, in combination with a black sense of subtle humour,” he says.
