ELIZABETH OHLSON WALLIN.

Elisabeth Ohlson Wallin (b. 1961) is one of Swedens most renowned photographers. She lives in Stockholm with her wife and their two children. Her exhibitions have often dealt with sexuality and religious opression.
The most well-known of her photo exhibitions, ”Ecce Homo” (1998), started an extensive and often emotional debate in Sweden about religion and homosexuality.
The controversy of putting Jesus and other figures and tales from the Bible in a queer context became even more provoking when the exhibition was shown in places like the cathedral of the Swedish Lutheran church in Uppsala and the Swedish parliament (Riksdagen).
”Ecce Homo” became one of the most famous art-exhibitions in Sweden during the last decades and it toured for several years both in Sweden and abroad.
Among Elisabeth Ohlson Wallins other photo exhibitions are:”Via Dolorosa” (2004), about the hiv/aids-situation in South Africa, ”Livet med tiden” (2006), about ageing and ”In Hate We Trust” (2007) about hate and hate crimes instigated by the religion towards LGBT-people.
