Like many of the painters in the beginning of the 20th century, Edvard Munch took photographs for inspiration. An essential part of a new traveling exhibition, Edvard Munch: The Modern Eye, deals with Munch's experimental photographic art. His photos are presented as independent works of art, together with the artist's experiments with film from the late 1920s.
