Björn Persson to Grace 'AURA 2024' as Iconic International Photographer and Guest Exhibitor

Renowned Swedish photographer Björn Persson has been announced as the 'Iconic International Photographer' and Guest Exhibitor for the upcoming 'AURA 2024- International Photography & Art Exhibition'. Organized by Retro Kolkata Magazine, this prestigious event is scheduled to take place at Nazrul Tirtha, Newtown, Kolkata, from January 13 to January 21, 2024. The art exhibition will be held from January 13-15, followed by the photography exhibition from January 18-20, culminating in a felicitation ceremony on January 21.

A Journey of Passion and Purpose

Based in Stockholm, Sweden, Björn Persson is an artist celebrated internationally for his exceptional talent and dedication. Over the years, he has journeyed across the globe, capturing awe-inspiring images that reflect his profound love for wildlife and human cultures. His photography transcends traditional wildlife and documentary genres, resonating emotionally with viewers and conveying a deep message of respect and understanding for nature.

Artistic Vision and Style

Persson's approach to photography is akin to art. He strives to portray wild animals as sentient beings with distinct personalities and needs. His aim is to capture their essence, translating their wisdom through his lens. His work is characterized by its evocative, dreamy, and cinematic quality, often incorporating artistic post-production techniques and overlays to enhance the storytelling aspect of his images.

Conveying a Message of Hope and Change

In a world often overwhelmed by negative news, Persson's mission is to highlight the beauty of nature without inducing despair about the threats facing many species. His goal is to foster a social commitment to positive change, believing that to protect wildlife, people must first learn to love, understand, and respect it.

Commitment to Wildlife Conservation

Björn Persson's dedication to wildlife extends beyond his photography. His passion was ignited during his time in South Africa, where he trained in field care and worked with anti-poaching teams. Witnessing the critical state of wildlife firsthand, he has since used his camera as a tool against poaching, contributing significantly to wildlife conservation efforts.

Here Forever Foundation and Literary Contributions

Persson is the founder of the non-profit foundation 'Here Forever', which focuses on increasing awareness of wildlife conservation. He has also contributed to the literary world with his photography book 'Beauty Will Save the World', a follow-up to his first release 'The Real Owners of the Planet'. These works form part of a trilogy that explores the modern human's connection to nature.

AURA 2024: A Stage for Vision and Artistry

AURA 2024 promises to be a grand showcase of Persson's remarkable work, offering a platform where art, photography, and conservation messages converge. This exhibition is not just a display of artistic talent but a testament to the power of photography in making a difference in the world.
