half a century of capturing expeditions
an oeuvre of 30,000 photographs
a selection of beautiful black and white photography
authentic, human and timeless
Rolf Blomberg (Stockholm, 1912 – Quito, 1996) was a Swedish explorer, writer, filmmaker and photographer. In 1934 he traveled to the Galapagos Islands and Ecuador for the first time. This expedition was the beginning of half a century of travelling to Indonesia, Australia, Colombia, Kenya, Brazil, Peru, Bolivia and many other countries.
Blomberg took almost 30,000 black-and-white photos with his Hasselblad camera (given to him personally by Victor Hasselblad) – timeless images that also demonstrate Blomberg's eye for composition. His magnificent photographic collection shows his ability to capture details, scenes and attitudes.
Float frame wood
Our favourite frame is a float frame of Mansonia wood (without glass). This wooden frame gives the art prints a very natural look and perfectly combines with the black and white photography.
