The Board

Elevator music, framed colour prints, and the view of Sergels Torg, Karin Hansson 2001.

A fantastic view of Stockholm’s economic centre supplies the background for these portraits of board members of Sweden’s four largest banks, surrounded by relaxing music designed for consumption. A reminder that capital is still controlled by ordinary humans. These are the people that are the guarantee for the long lasting value attached to our money.
The photos were originally taken for the banks annual reports. SEB’s board was photographed by Magnus Persson, Handelsbanken’s by Victor Brott (Global Reporting), Föreningssparbanken’s by Christoffer Edling, and Nordea’s board was photographed by Per Brogaard.
