Famous photobook by Swedish photographer, JH Engstrom. Black cloth boards with color photograph and title in white on front and text in white on back, 59 colour and 39 b&w photographs. This widely acclaimed photo book by Jan Henrik Engstrom contains photographs from the United States, Italy, France and Sweden. His work is one of the reasons Scandinavian photography is acknowledged worldwide.
The book comprises a photojournalistic 'diary' of his life: landscapes, still-lives, self-portraits, and snapshots of friends become loosely narrative documents, recording not only the artist's individual experiences, but a sensitive and provocative engagement with the world at large. Using photography's ability to capture the fleeting essence of a moment, Engström transfers specific time and place to the unfixed reference of memory“
