JONAS BENDİKSEN

Although he started his career as a photojournalist, Norwegian Jonas Bendiksen developed into an award-winning artist over the years. Bendiksen, whose career began at Magnum London, and has been working as a member of the Magnum Photos family since 2004, has been significantly influenced by the role of faith and religion in society and has always chosen to focus on enclaves and ethnic minorities. The exhibition selections from his book “The Last Testament,” which deals with ‘so-called Messiahs’ from different countries with both small and large followings, prompt thought-provoking questions about truth and illusions associated with the role of faith. “The Last Testament,” in which the disciples of 7 so-called messiahs photographed by the artist are the work’s focus, raises interesting questions about these communities that may look like cults from an outsider’s perspective.
