Senay Berhe, award-winning filmmaker, director and artist, is the latest photographer to show his work as part of Fotografiska’s Emerging Artists initiative. With his upcoming exhibition, he sheds new light on the ordinary, giving the overlooked an entirely new dimension. 
Senay Berhe’s artistic journey spans 15 years, with his breakthrough coming in his hometown of Stockholm. Self-taught, his extensive body of work includes music videos, digital campaigns, films, and documentaries. He is now adding photography and art to his creative repertoire. Berhe’s works often capture the simple beauty of everyday situations and have received international recognition through exhibitions and screenings at galleries, film festivals, and academic institutions worldwide. He now joins the list of photographers within the Emerging Artist initiative to exhibit at Fotografiska Stockholm, where up-and-coming photographers based in Sweden and with a visionary eye can showcase their art.
Berhe’s artistry is rooted in the complex interplay between our external and internal landscapes. In this new exhibition, A Familiar Feeling of Now, not only does he want to explore the boundaries of our relationship with traditional photography, he also looks to break these boundaries. Many of his works have emerged from simple settings, on the way to or from the most private of all places: home. By using materials such as textiles, wallpaper, frames, film and sculptures, objects are transformed into works of art that illuminate the ordinary in a different way.
