About

Slowly but steadily we become immersed in what Henrik
 Malmström saw and photographed from the window of his 
living room. The pages of A Minor Wrongdoing unfold as a 
hypnotic sequence of candid shots taken at the
neighbourhood of St. Georg in Hamburg, between 2011
 and 2014. Hundreds of them, they record the last remains 
of street life in an urban area that is currently undergoing
 fierce gentrification after recent official law enforcement
against street-based prostitution.
 
Malmström used a cheap 
digital camera forcing its ISO levels to reproduce in each
 scene the raw effect of a surveillance camera. The grainy
 monochromatic material of his voyeuristic enterprise has
 been put together in this voluminous book replicating a
 messy police report archive. Printed in sharp dots, the grain
adds a grade of unprecedented abstraction and beauty to 
the sequence whereas the quantity of images breaks with
 the conventional linear story structure. There is an uncanny
f eel in it. And obsession: the unconfessed obsession of a 
photographer who happened to be in the right place at the 
right time. We do not get to see much of what he
 photographed but we can still imagine pretty much
 happening in this obscure underworld of transactions.
 
 
 
About the Photographer: 
 
Finnish photographer Henrik Malmström (b.1983) currently lives and works in Buenos Aires, Argentina. His work is often the result of the interaction with his immediate surroundings. In 2010, he self-published "On Borrowed Time", his first photobook. In the same year he moved to Hamburg, Germany, where he developed and completed his two projects “A Minor Wrongdoing” and “Life is One Live it Well” by 2014. He is the co-founder and curator of the Müllkellergalerie, a premium art gallery located in a garbage room in Hamburg, Germany. In 2015 he co-founded the online platform Vaciarte, that deals with arts and politics in Buenos Aires.
