had just arrived back to the little town of Malmö that he had spent
his last high school years in, ten years earlier.
was like the ten years had never gone by and he was back just graduating,
going out into the real world of swedish society. The very same situation
he had left as soon as he possibly could. While there, he had had a couple
of important friends. One was Jens Evald
Hansen, another Frans Burghofer,
a third was Anna Bring.
By compiling the different areas of inspirations to his work he made after
leaving Malmö, Jacob produced the project "Slideshow" that
happened every wednesday for five weeks during the month of June 2003.
It was held in the courtyard of Malmö Konsthall, to relate to the
open air events he held at The Gershwin Hotel roof top and Pier 63 in
New York New School: photographers who had also gone to school at ICP
in New York.
2. Graffiti Photography: Jacob's early inspiration in art, music and lifestyle.
3. The Malmö School: The group of artists in Malmö that would
have been his peers, had he stayed.
4. Malmö Old School: The group of artists or era Jacob was inspired
by in his photography before he left. Jazz being the key word.
5. Danish Newave: The group of artists Jacob would have had as his peers
if he had been able to live in Copenhagen.
DJ Whitelines (who is Jacob's alter
ego when leaving the house while living in Sweden) dj'd the soundtrack
to the images shown by the artists.
Different styles and themes according to the night.
