Joel Meyerowitz Retroperspective
Starting in 1962, Joel Meyerowitz began experimenting with using color photography first and added black-and-white photography to his work just shortly afterwards. In 1966 he drove across the whole of Europe, and he used color photography’s special qualities when the subject required color shades and luminosity for being connected. He nevertheless made deliberate use of black and white in order to highlight contrasts between elements of the image, be they artistic or graphic. Within a few years after his return, he began working exclusively in color, which was a break with the staunchly remaining black-and-white dictum of artistic photography and photojournalism.

Their clothes are brilliantly colored, their pumps white,
their backcombed hair immaculate. What would this
charming picture, so rich in nuances, be without color?

Sigrid Hjertén (1885–1948) is a front figure of the Swedish Modernist avantgarde. In her early days, she was a pupil of Henri Matisse´s in Paris, where she was also influenced by the art of Paul Cézanne. Hjertén’s expressive colourist painting caused her to be both feted and maligned by her contemporaries. The exhibition features a large number of her works from the 1910s and up to her critically-acclaimed breakthrough in the 1930s, when some of her most captivating and colouristically intense works were painted. Parallelly, a small number of paintings by her husband Isaac Grünewald and son Iván Grünewald, will also be displayed.
The participants thought that the room in the top image was smaller than the room in the picture below. The only difference in the pictures is the purple colour of the ottoman. The powerful purple colour made the room appear smaller in the top image. (The participants saw the ceiling in both pictures). (Photo: JCR / Hagtvedt/Brasel)

Can orange light therapy help people who have serious mental disorders? Who hear voices and see things that aren’t there? Or who are thinking about committing suicide?
“Emergency psychiatric care hasn’t seen much new thinking about treatment approaches. We’re trying to do something about that,” says Håvard Kallestad, a researcher in NTNU’s Department of Mental Health to ScinceNordic. He is part of a team that is integrating a special light treatment into the new emergency psychiatric centre at St. Olavs Hospital in Trondheim.
