Waiting

The Waiting (2005) series was made on the Thai coast in the weeks after the tsunami. By that time the media from all over the world had already shown an avalanche of images in which the drama had been illuminated from every conceivable angle. With Waiting Joakim Eneroth asks primarily for reflection and contemplation, without immediately aiming at strong emotion. His photographs call on us to once again summon before our mind's eye and quietly reflect on the many images of the tsunami that we remember. In that way they will have the space that in all likelihood they did not have in the first, massive consumption, focused as it often was on sensation. By photographing the sea both calm and threatening, Eneroth moreover gives shape to the unpredictability of nature.

TESTIMONY (2004)

Since the People's Republic of China signed the UN treaty against torture in 1986, it has denied that it still employs torture. The declarations of Tibetans who have fled to India for political reasons indicate the opposite. Joakim Eneroth did portraits of a number of these refugees for Testimony (2004), together with the Chinese instruments of torture that one of them was able to smuggle out with him. In recent years China has executed more people than all other countries combined. International critique is often silenced in deference to economic interests. For example, a German firm is presently building a railway line in Tibet, and an Australian firm owns all the Tibetan gold mines. China has also been selected to organize the 2008 Olympic Games.
