For three years, I have visited and photographed places in Stockholm’s suburbs. The background is the city’s transformation, following a decision that 140,000 new homes will be built between 2010 and 2030. “Barriers” is published by Arena and is finally ready for delivery. Many thanks to all Involved in the Project.
