Item description for Lars Tunbjork: Vinter by Lars Tunbjork & Greger Ulf Nilson...
"I often feel beside myself in the wintertime, and I try to go to warmer and lighter places. But the last couple of years I have traveled into the winter and darkness instead--into areas, conditions and encounters in which I don't really know where the outer and inner begin. And even less where they end." Lars Tunbjork's photographic explorations of northern Sweden capture the atmosphere of the gloaming winter months in Scandinavia, and the lives of the people who live under those dark skies. Vinter began as a means of surviving the dark part of the year; it has a correspondingly different mood, color range and temperament from Tunbjork's previous work, but shares its style, understated humor and often absurd subject matter. The artist was born in 1956 in Boras, on the western coast of Sweden, and now lives and works in Stockholm. His images have been exhibited internationally, and are published regularly through the Paris picture agency VU and in monographs, among them Country Beside Itself (1993), Office (2001), Home (2002), Dom alla (2003) and I Love Boras! (2006).
