Campo Verano is a series reinterpreting the photographic portraits affixed to grave markers in Campo Verano, the largest cemetery in Rome. This series of portraits is a continuation of Torben Eskerod’s earlier artistic works. In his portraits he attempts to work with stringency, minimalism, and precision in order to cut out unnecessary and confusing elements.
Torben Eskerod lives in Copenhagen. He has shown his work at many international venues, among them the the National Portrait Gallery, London; the Northern Light Gallery, San Francisco; the Yossi Milo Gallery, New York; the Houston Fotofest; and the Photographs Do Not Bend Gallery, Dallas.
