BBA Gallery presents a solo exhibition by Jens Juul - winner of the BBA Photography Prize 2021 - for the European Month of Photography Berlin - EMOP.
‘Six Degrees of Copenhagen’ is an ongoing series that winner of the 2021 BBA Photography Prize, Jens Juul, has been developing for 10 years. EMOP 2023.
Part documentation, part social examination, and part artistic portraiture, the harsh and unrelenting photographs highlight the beauty of the human condition by bringing the viewer into close acquaintance with the private lives of strangers.
Jens Juul’s first solo exhibition in Berlin is part of the 10th European Month of Photography.
EMOP generates visibility for photographers in Berlin, the EU, and globally.
The ongoing series is inspired by the six degrees of separation theory that states people are no more than six social connections apart. Jens Juul asks the strangers he photographs to recommend a friend, thus passing the baton.
‘Six Degrees of Copenhagen’ breaks social boundaries in two significant ways: when Juul approaches a stranger to ask whether he can photograph them, and when, in the private sphere of the individual’s home, he captures a singular vulnerable moment. Jens Juul’s portraits are a beautiful reminder of our shared humanity and are encapsulated in his new book.
Friday 3 March from 19:00 - 21:00
Saturday 4 March at 13:00
