Untitled (England 1966-67)

Andersen, Bjorn
Bjørn Falch Andersen’s series of untitled photographs were taken during an intensive, five-year period during the late 1960s when the Norwegian artist was training to be a dentist in Bristol, England. The black and white photographs capture everyday life on the streets of the city: a row of elderly women seated on a bench, a man on crutches outside a newsagent, gesturing towards something off camera. In one candid photograph, a glamorous young woman in a headscarf eats food from a paper napkin while behind her, her back to the camera, another woman reads a newspaper mid-stride. In this series of photographs Andersen has captured fleeting moments that might otherwise have passed unnoticed, and which now speak eloquently of a period of recent British cultural history.
