A look back at the G8 in Deauville

Lars Tunbjörk was born in Boras, Sweden, in 1956, and died in Stockholm on April 11, 2015. He took an acid, humorous look at the world around him: his native country and its contradictions, or the desolate uniformity of the suburban areas that are taking over the world, not forgetting one of his favorite subjects, open-plan offices. For several years (he was one of the few photographers accredited by the New York Times), he followed international events such as the Cannes Film Festival and Paris Fashion Week, and reported on sports in Dubai and the China of the new rich. With his unconventional style - close-up and distant framing, objective shots and cutaways - and his original points of view, he questions the world around us. His images were more questions than observations, which he developed with a discreet sense of humor. Lars Tunbjörk has published seven monographs. He won the World Press Photo award in 2005.

In Deauville in May 2011, he went behind the scenes at the G8 meeting of heads of state and government, and produced a report entitled : An offbeat look at the G8 in Deauville.
