“The starting point is usually my own photographs of people captured on streets and in pubic spaces”.
"This is where Torbjörn Länk’s vision starts, capable like few others artists of giving shape, texture and color to everyday life, taking up styles that bring back to mind the
composed linearity of Renaissance masters, as well as the dreamlike visions of the pre-Raphaelites. Immersed in a tangible present, the people of his daily life are photographed and then extrapolated from their context to be immersed in other worlds, in other meanings, through scenarios masterfully built by the perfect
direction of the artist, capable of not losing any of the fundamental traits of the character of his models. An artist whose works can be observed for hours, discovering at every glance new significances and perspectives.
