In 2005, Swedish photographer Joakim Eneroth traveled to Dharamsala, India, to meet with Palden Gyatso. The resulting images bear cold testimony to the continuing practice of torture not only in China, but throughout the world.
These photographs will be exhibited at artandphotographs, London, and published as a book by Culture Art Technology, with an introduction by Amnesty International's Deborah Long and an essay by writer Malin Rosen, who accompanied Eneroth on this trip.
Joakim Eneroth was born 1969 in Sweden. He graduated from Nordens Fotoskola in Biskops-Arnö in 1999. He has since been honoured in the Swedish Picture Of The Year (portrait) and won first prize in Prix Voies Off 2005 in Arles, France. In May 2007 his project Seeing Reality Behind My Projections was selected by Alain Sayag for an exhibition at the Guandong Museum of Modern Art in China. A book by Eneroth, Swedish Red, published by Steidl, will be released in August 2008.
