Karin Hansson 2001, elevator music, framed color prints, and the view of Sergels Torg.
A fantastic view of Stockholms economic center supplies the background for these portraits of board members for Swedens four largest banks, like a reminder that capital is controlled by ordinary humans. SEBs board was photographed by Magnus Persson, Handelsbankens by Victor Brott (Global Reporting), Föreningssparbankens by Christoffer Edling, and Nordeas board was photographed by Per Brogaard. Some board members are missing, either because they did not care to participate or because there were no fitting photographs.
