EVERYONE THEIR OWN HISTORIAN

PHOTO EXHIBITION IN THE COURSE DIGITAL PHOTOGRAPHY AT THE UNIVERSITY OF GOTHENBURG.

The theme of the exhibition was "Everyone their own historian" and my piece was called "Utanför femtioskyltarna åker jag aldrig" (eng. I would never go past the 50km/h signs.). The collection of pictures is a portrait of the society in which I am born and raised in the small working class society of Storfors in Värmland, Sweden. It is a series of pictures showing an ambiguous emotion of idyll, restlessness, nature, small town mentality and restlessness.
