More information

Among the many portraits of small children that Strömholm has encountered on his travels, is this image of two small boys who, with a curious yet serious expression, meet the photographer's gaze in the middle of a street in Paris. The image is typical of Strömholm's many portraits of children, with a psychological depth characterised by loneliness and isolation that can perhaps be found in Strömholm's childhood.
The boys are one of Strömholm's most beloved motifs and have become iconic.
