GBG STATE OF MIND


In tandem with the release of STHLM PHONE HOME comes GBG STATE OF MIND by the Swedish photographer Per Englund.

In the book, Englund returns to important places in his hometown Gothenburg. The thought-provoking photographs are reminiscent of film noir and the memory of the harbour’s melancholy is blackly portrayed in this personal body of work. In the book’s first page, the photographer laconically observes that “colours are like the body: mostly in the way.”
Per Englund delves deeply into his pictorial archive in order to find out how many times he has visited and photographed his hometown since moving to Stockholm in 2007. He describes the photographs as pictorial evidence.
