Swedish born, Anders Petersen is a world renowned photographer, noted for his intimate and personal documentary-style black-and-white photographs.
Taken in the South of France, "French Kiss" is characteristic Petersen, exuding the poetic sadness, restlessness and sense of urgency that runs through all his work.
When the work was first shown at Arles Photography Festival the response was astounding: 'They made everything else on display at the huge photography festival pale in comparison.
They became the 'buzz' in Arles. And everyone realized that Anders Petersen (that wildly energetic 62-year-old guy) is still making some of the most arresting personal documentary photographs today - Jim Casper, "Lenswork".
