until 05.05. | #3792ARTatBerlin | BBA Gallery presents for the Month of Photography Berlin – EMOP from 3. March 2023 the solo exhibition Six Degrees of Copenhagen by the artist Jens Juul – winner of the BBA Photography Prize 2021.

‘Six Degrees of Copenhagen’ is an ongoing series that winner of the 2021 BBA Photography Prize, Jens Juul, has been developing for 10 years. Part documentation, part social examination, and part artistic portraiture, the harsh and unrelenting photographs highlight the beauty of the human condition by bringing the viewer into close acquaintance with the private lives of strangers, Jens Juul’s first solo exhibition in Berlin is part of the 10th European Month of Photography. EMOP generates visibility for photographers in Berlin, the EU, and globally.

The ongoing series is inspired by the six degrees of separation theory that states people are no more than six social connections apart. Jens Juul asks the strangers he photographs to recommend a friend, thus passing the baton. ‘Six Degrees of Copenhagen’ breaks social boundaries in two significant ways: when Juul approaches a stranger to ask whether he can photograph them, and when, in the private sphere of the individual’s home, he captures a singular vulnerable moment. Jens Juul’s portraits are a beautiful reminder of our shared humanity and are encapsulated in his new book.

Jens Juul (*1963, Denmark) has garnered international attention for his fervent style of portrait photography. He has won multiple international awards including the Magnum Photography Awards, the Sony World Photography Award in the portrait category,  International Photographer of the Year, and the 2021 BBA Photography Prize.
