Cafe Intime is the oldest gay bar located in the center of Copenhagen. Intime feels like entering a living room filled with old paintings, furniture and fresh flowers. The interior of the bar has been influenced by the life at Montmartre and Under den Linden in the 1920s. It’s the place where people take their first date for a drink whilst listening to jazz. The artist Magnus Cederlund has been visiting this place for the past seven years, photographing random guests for his future photo book. The series Intime, however, only displays a specifically chosen selection of photographs from the bar, depicting the trans gender community.

Magnus Cederlund is a Swedish artist who has been living and working in Copenhagen, Denmark for the past 30 years. Coderlund’s first book SKIN CLOSE was published by in 2018. The artist is currently working on his second photo book Cafe Intime that is soon going to be released by Journal. Coderlund has been exhibiting his photographic work both locally and internationally since 1989. His latest achievements include for example a photography exhibition at Fotografiska, Stockholm in 2018 and Tevere Art Gallery, Rome in 2019.
