MORE INFORMATION AND VIDEOS​​​​​​​

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.

With the series “FINDINGS - DIGITAL”, we are happy to give you a preview of the FFF exhibtion. Curator Alison Nordström, art historian and curator of the show, talks about Eskerod's series LIFE AND DEATH MASKS (2001). These larger-than-life studies of the likenesses of famous Scandinavians, found and photographed in the Frederiksborg Museum of Natural History, belong to Torben Eskerod‘s most important bodies of work.
