LUISA DÖRR / VII

LECTURE - HOUSE OF LITERATURE - THURSDAY 8th OF JUNE1900

 Brazilian Luisa Dörr’s homeland is characterized by contradiction and great inequality. Now she’s coming to Fredrikstad to tell stories about young women, racism, religion - and about Maysa (13) and her big dream of becoming Miss Brazil.

Luisa Dörr doesn’t need to travel to remote nations to photograph. She excels instead in finding stories right outside her own home, in her own country, today. And often it’s the mobile telephone in her pocket that’s the preferred camera.

Luisa Dörr (b. 1988) has become known internationally in the last year. She is a member of the photo agency VII’s mentor program.

Maysa won the state title of Young Miss São Paulo "Black Beauty," a separate title from Young Miss São Paulo, created to encourage black girls to participate. Racism is, unfortunately, very common, even with most of our people being a mix of several different ethnicities. It's not common seeing many black people in beauty contests. Luana her sister decided she also wants be a model. Luisa Dörr / VII

What can a picture of a pink toothbrush tell us about a mother's mourning?

When nearly 300 schoolgirls were kidnapped by the terrorist organisation Boko Haram in Nigeria, the photographer Glenna Gordon wanted to share their story in a way that everyone could understand. The series about the kidnapped school girls is one of many projects Glenna has photographed in Nigeria. By focusing on one country over a longer period of time Glenna have been able to shine light on the horrifying stories as well as those more peculiar. At Dok:17 she will share stories from her travels through Nigeria, from south to north and back again.

Glenna Gordon (b. 1981) is American and has worked for years in West Africa. She reports regularly from the region for, among others, The New York Times and Time Magazine. Gordon received a World Press Photo award, the world’s most prestigious photo competition, for her coverage of the kidnapped schoolgirls.

LECTURE - HOUSE OF LITERATURE -  SATURDAY 10th OF JUNE  2100

"Surely I am coming back soon." The Bibles penultimate verse prophesying Jesus Christ's return remains one of history's defining sentences. Christians have waited two thousand years for the second coming of Christ, when he will bring about the End Times, judge mankind and correct our hopelessly flawed existence.  

According to Jonas Bendiksen's latest project The Last Testament the wait is now finally over. The End Times are already here and Jesus walks among us. Bendiksen arrives straight from the printing presses to share his new book project. He has spent the last three years following seven men who all claim to be the biblical Messiah. Bendiksen conducts a deep dive into each of these modern Messiahs' revelations, their disciples daily life and our longing for faith, meaning and a new prophet. This will be the first preview of the Norwegian photographers newest book, which will be published September 2017.

The Norwegian photographer Jonas Bendiksen (b.1977) started his career as a 19 year old learning the ropes of the industry at Magnums London office. After having worked there as an intern for a year, he went to Russia in order to become a photographer on his own.

Bendiksen became an official member of Magnum in 2004.
