Hårda tider ©Åsa Franck 2013

Hösten 1983 möter Åsa Franck Roger Risberg, han var konstnär, han tecknade jämt eller målade eller sprayade, hon var fotograf, hon fotograferade jämt. Men Roger kunde också bli väldigt sjuk, det var hårda tider.Now, after nearly 30 years, Åsa Franck looks back at her work documenting the artist Roger Risberg and presents a series of photographs about artist and muse, life and work. While the collection of images presented at ID:I galleri is a preview of a work in progress, they offer a satisfying glimpse of how the intimate observations of a photographer can reveal a portrait of a person from the inside out.

As a documentary photographer, there is no distinction between life and work for Franck. Photography has given her the freedom to explore reality and capture images in an honest and non-hierarchic style which has defined her practice through the years. From behind the camera lens, Franck has focused her attention on a diverse range of themes that reflect her interests and experiences of the world, whether it relates to the physical action of boxing, political commentary or the quite of moments one’s daily routines.

”In South Africa and Zimbabwe, shebeens are most often located in black townships as an alternative to pubs and bars, where under apartheid and the Rhodesian era, black Africans could not enter a pub or bar reserved for whites.

Originally, shebeens were operated illegally, selling homebrewed and home-distilled alcohol and providing patrons with a place to meet and discuss political and social issues. Often, patrons and owners were arrested by the police, though the shebeens were frequently reopened because of their importance in unifying the community and providing a safe place for discussion.

During the apartheid era shebeens became a crucial meeting place for activists, some attracting working class activists and community members, while others attracted lawyers, doctors and musicians. Shebeens also provided music and dancing, allowing patrons to express themselves culturally”.
