30 Black-and-White Photographs Capture Street Scenes of Stockholm in the 1950s

Gunnar Smoliansky (1933) hails from the island of Gotland, in Sweden. He started his career as an assistant to a photographer in Sao Paulo, who specialised in industrial photography. On his return to Sweden, he started work at Atlas Copco as their inhouse photographer, while studying at Christer Strömholm’s photography school. He has numerous exhibitions and publications to his name, and books such as Barn, Slussen and Waldemarsudde.

Gunnar Smoliansky works exclusively in black and white, and always develops his photographs himself. Throughout his career, he has transformed his photographed motifs into completed photos in the darkroom. Stockholm is the main focus of Smoliansky’s photographic world, particularly the areas of Södermalm and Saltsjö-Boo, the two parts of the city he has lived and worked in for most of his life.
