Gelatin silver print 40 x 50cm, Series of 66 photographs 2007/ 2014
The Country of the Rising Sun is my first mature photographic body of work, made during three winter visits to Stockholm. The focus lies on strong lighting situations during a Scandinavian winter. The black and white photographs are taken in Swedish suburban neighbourhoods resonating strikingly with suburbs found elsewhere. Suburbia, for all its site-specific peculiarities is paradoxically a zone of universal déjà vu. The publication was the winner of the first Unseen Amsterdam Dummy Award, published by Lecturis in 2013. The series was re-edited in 2014 for exhibition purposes.
