“Kung av Tylösand” exhibition in Söndrum

Arrival in Halmstad and one day left until the show. Fortunately we read about the “Kung av Tylösand” exhibition in Söndrum’s library and decided to go there. We saw around 30-40 pictures from the past – mostly from Per’s solo tour in 2003 and the Crash!Boom!Bang tour in 1994 – taken by Dan Karlsson.

Fortunately we didn’t have to pay any entrance fee because it wouldn’t have been worth it. The pictures didn’t reveal any new motives, persons, situations – whatever. So after we saw five or six we knew there wouldn’t be anything new to watch and laughed about the fact that they sold the photos for 1200 SEK (more expensive pictures cost 3000 SEK). I could win a contest promising that every long-term-fan has better photos on his/her computer. For those who couldn’t go: you didn’t miss a thing – maybe a good laugh about the high and totally unrealistic prices. If you have any good Gessle photos on your compter you should try to sell them somewhere, you could maybe make a killing..

Here you see some pictures taken at the exhibition by myself.

  1. of course!
    If a photographer gets a press-pass at a concert, then it is also normal that that photographer sells his material, if he/she is a freelancer. Otherwise he or she didn’t earn any money.
    Besides that, Per is a well-known public person, so the portrait-right does not count for him, as long as the taken pictures do not disturb his private life in any way….

    I was also at the exhibition. I also think it was not good, but it was also just a small exhibition in a small library somewhere out of town… So what did you expect? And yes, the prices where indeed to high for the quality.

  2. I think it’s not about the exhibition itself, sure, it was in a library outside Halmstad.. but the prices compared to the quality of the pictures.
    Thomas Evensson could get rich 😉

  3. Yes, it’s not about the exhibition. I actually love the idea and the place was nice. It was just not worth visiting for a die-hard-fan and the prices were much too high.
