PERFECTIONIST AGAINST ALL ODDS…
As with all great personalities, the name Gunnar Larsen, carries very different and
contradicting connotations. A star, a slob, a genius, a playful amateur – once we
opened the ‘little black box’ of Gunnar Larsen’s oeuvre, the story started to unravel
– a story that has been lying dormant for almost 20 years.
Gunnar Larsen was a provocateur and an anarchist; a full-blown bohemian and an
extreme perfectionist. He found his own winding way to recognition and acclaim
– even if that meant breaking some rules, stepping on some toes and piss off the establishment from time to time.
But regardless of what his contemporaries thought and think of him, the Gunnar
Larsen legacy stands undistributed: he was a unique artist ahead of his time – the
pictures and their impact on modern day photography say it all. With this tribute
exhibition, ‘Gunnar versus Vs’, the team at Vs. Magazine has set out to resurrect the
memory, the style and the energy of this bold photographer and fashion persona, who
was indeed a talent despite himself… Enjoy!
