John Alinder: Portraits 1910–32
John Alinder's portrait art close to home
Altunagården 19 juni–31 juli, tisdag–söndag kl 11–17.
They are there throughout the history of art. The gazes that touch generation after generation. That make certain works of art come alive and feel constantly relevant. John Alinder's photographs are one of them. Kindly indulgent, sometimes a little mocking, the subjects meet your gaze and you feel as if they are looking deep into your own soul.
In the summer of 2022, you can see Alinder's portraits in a large photo exhibition in his home parish of Altuna.
The exhibition shows over 100 portraits by photographer John Alinder, a self-taught photographer who lived in Sävasta, Altuna parish, all his life. He photographed people, animals and events in his surroundings in the early 20th century and had a rare ability to make people relax and thus seem alive forever.
The exhibition is open 19 June-31 July: Tuesday-Sunday, 11-17. Closed on Midsummer Eve and Midsummer Day.
Café with home made bread inside and outside
Altunagården provides coffee and homemade bread. You can sit inside with the exhibition if the weather is inclement, or outside in the community centre's garden.
Arrangements: the Fjärdhundraland Economic Association, Upplandsmuseet and Altunagården.
The exhibition is partly funded by a project grant from Leader Mälardalen.
