V Bar @ Fotografiska reopens with Exhibition, ‘A Million More’ ~ Stories of Seatbelt Survivors

 

 

Volvo Cars, a name synonymous with safety, gave the world the first three-point safety belt in 1959. After its introduction, Volvo faced a world of criticism. People questioned the need to wear them, and some felt laws forcing them to wear one was an infringement on human rights.

The new exhibition, A Million More features portraits and audio recordings that tell the stories of survivors saved by the safety belt, captured by esteemed photographer and Fotografiska alum, Martin Schoeller.
