The Danish photographer Torben Eskerod (*1960) is internationally known and awarded for his diverse portraits and portrait-like photographs of death masks, gravestone pictures or even wooden model heads. In addition, his professional practice includes contemplative images of architecture and landscapes, photographs
of art and artifacts as well as works made in collaboration with anthropologists, architectural historians and museum curators.

With 140 pictures from 22 different work series, the exhibition FINDINGS. TORBEN ESKEROD presents for the first time a survey of this impressively large spectrum. At the same time, the show identifies the photographer's distinctive vision, that manifests itself in his artistic as well as in his scientific-documentary work and unifies his oeuvre as a whole.


The exhibition includes 22 series from almost 30 years of Torben Eskerod’s work and was curated by Alison Nordström (US), independent scholar and photography curator, for the Fotografie Forum Frankfurt.

VIDEO #5

Curator Alison Nordström about Torben Eskerod’s series “Campo Verano” (2001–2008)

With the series “FINDINGS - DIGITAL”, we are happy to give you an insight of the FFF exhibtion. Curator Alison Nordström, art historian and curator of the show, talks about Eskerod's series “Campo Verano” (2001–2008). For this body of work Eskerod photographed the photographic portraits of deceased persons, which he found set into headstones of Rome’s largest cemetery. Portraits not only of memory but „of love“, as Eskerod himself said.
