More information

Det viktigaste arbetstemat för Strömholm var sökandet efter och utforskandet av människors sanna identitet. Hans dokumentära bilder från projektet i 1950-talets Paris, “Vännerna på Place Blanche”, är idag legendariska. Lika känd som sviten om vännerna på Moulin Rouges och nattklubbarnas Place Blanche är bilden av den välsminkade bleka damen. Att fotografera var för Christer Strömholm en helig uppgift. Han arbetade inte med kommersiella uppdrag utan tog diverse ströjobb, som till exempel pressfotograf, bartender och reseledare för att få ihop pengar till film och framkallning. Det var på en resa till Barcelona som den berömda bilden av bleka damen togs på en eftermiddagsbordell, i en paus mellan de guidade turerna.

"Bleka damen i Barcelona" har bland annat visats på MoMa i New York tillsammans med andra världsnamn inom fotohistorien. Bilden är även omslag på senaste utgåvan (2011) av “La Petite Encyclopédie de la Photographie” som behandlar fotohistoriens 220 främsta fotografer.
