I am exhibiting images from the book “Barriers” at Gothenburg Book Fair 2022. Today Magali Cunico and I installed the images for the exhibition. The images are located on the second floor in the aisle leading to ¨Se människan¨or “See the Man¨ in English. The show is part of the Photographic Path arranged by Gothenburg Diocese cultural cooperation, Church of Sweden. The book is available at Publisher Arena´s boot located at E05:12.

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.

Barriers in Print

I have been working on the Barriers book since 2018; at last, it is in print – but not yet in binding. Göteborgstryckeriet has done the printing, and Förlagshuset Nordens Grafiska executes the binding and case will in Malmö. The book turned out to be more comprehensive than I thought when entering the design process one year ago. 

The format is 300 mm x 206 mm and 140 pages. Besides the 96 pages for images, there are 16 pages with maps and 28 pages of text. The photo pages are  150 g Arctic Volume White paper, the text on 115 g Munken Print Cream 15, and the maps on pink 120 g Colorit from Lessebo Bruk. The design is by Peter Sellberg / LOD, and have made the the maps.

Pandornas Dal

Pandornas Dal is a richly illustrated youth book by Eric Ericson and Susanna Wallstén.  The Swedish title translates to “The Valley of the Pandas” and tells the story of Albert Nader, one of Fraction de Panda’s most skilled agents. FDP dreams about building a community of their own on a deserted island, but people try to stop them; the police and bloodthirsty Babenberger’s chase them.  The book also spotlights a few of today’s most critical issues, such as global warming, sustainability, and ethics. 

Erik Hagman’s contribution to the book is the images that I created together with Eric and Susanna.

On the page about Pandornas Dal, you can find more information about the book.
