What will you find inside The 7 Cultural Sins Series?
Pope Gregory the Great once drew up a handy list of Seven Deadly Sins to help the confused human, never far away from displeasing God. Lust, Gluttony, Greed, Sloth, Wrath, Envy and Pride are easy to spot within ourselves, but expand their context to our modern cultures and they become more elusive. How do you recognise the essence of a Cultural Deadly Sin? Where in our societies do they hide? The internet? Our families?
This is what the Sin Series, The New Heroes and Pioneers’ sulphurous new collection, explores. Unafraid to push artistic boundaries, they gave carte blanche to seven edgy photographers with strong views to hold a lens to these Cultural Sins– caution be damned. The artists tracked their experience of Sin within the luxury of culture, stalked cultural indulgence, captured the darkness lurking behind lack of culture: will you follow their hell-bound path? Go on… Sin a little!

Instead of relying on sophisticated equipment, photographer Jens Lennartsson uses curiosity, empathy and trust to make meaningful connections and take you off the beaten path. The stories he captures are exotic and instantly familiar at the same time.
