A look at the G8 in Deauville

Lars Tunbjörk was born in 1956 in Boras, Sweden, and died on April 11, 2015 in Stockholm. He carried an acid and humorous look on the world which was close to him: his native country and its contradictions, or the desolate uniformity of the suburban areas which invade the world, without forgetting one of his favorite subjects, offices in open space. For several years (he was one of the few photographers accredited by the New York Times), he follows international events such as the Cannes Film Festival, Fashion Week in Paris, or reports on sport in Dubai or the China of the wealthy. With his original style - near and far framing, objective shots and cut views - his original points of view, he questions the world around us. His images were interrogations much more than observations, which he developed with discreet humor. Lars Tunbjörk has published seven monographs. He was awarded the World Press Photo in 2005.

In Deauville, he followed in May 2011 behind the scenes of the G8 of the Heads of State and Government and produced a report entitled: An offbeat look at the Deauville G8.
