Anna Riwkin: Portrait of a Photographer
SWEDEN
STOCKHOLM  •  Moderna Museet  •  Ongoing
 
Photo journalist Anna Riwkin documented Sweden and the world of her days. Her work has been donated to Moderna Museet by her family, and the museum has reopened the Skeppsholmen building with one of the most comprehensive exhibitions of this professional photographer.

Thanks to her wide circle of friends, Russian-born Anna Riwkin periodically had intensive contacts with the younger generation of Sweden's and Europe's cultural elite. Her friends included the people involved in the writer groups Spektrum and Clarté, and it was Anna Riwkin who took the well-known portrait of Karin Boye at the age of 39, staring into the distance. Eventually, Anna Riwkin also started to take pictures of dancers, quickly earning a reputation as a skillful dance photographer.
