LIFE GEOS ON

RECIPIENT OF THE SWEDISH BOOK ART AWARD 2009

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Life Geos On is a diary from Cape Town, where Swedish photographer Per Englund spent several South African summers. It is a collection of his observations and memories and depicts the post-apartheid city from street level. For centuries, Cape Town and its scenery has drawn adventurers, sailors, writers and artists. Englund has seen beyond the beauty and pointed his camera towards what aroused his interest, amusement or concern. By sharing his photographs of streets, urban landscapes, bars and hotel rooms, Englund takes us on a personal journey through Cape Town – a city which is said to be one of the most beautiful in the world.
