This street photography book contains, as the subtitle of the #mobilism photo book also says:  photographs of me, you and everyone we know. The book is about the role of the mobile phone in our society today and our longing for contact, context and communication, but not always  with the people right next to us.

 

The photo book #mobilism contains nearly 400 pictures and is published by Bœcker Books.

OUT OF NECESSITY VOL1

 

April 2014

 

This making of this bookzine was initiated by Joakim Kocjancic and Pierre Vincensini. It contains street photography from Stockholm by them, me and six other photographers. I contributed with pictures from the Der Mensch in der Maschine project.

 

Out of Necessity vol 1 is limited to 400 copies and can be ordered by sending a message here.

 

 

 

 

The foreword by Mia Bengtsson Plynning:

 

"Is Photography really necessary?

Maybe it is more important than ever in a time when we are narrowing our horizons, our attention nailed to the telephone screen. We do not meet people’s eyes on the street, we do not notice the feeling in the air, nor the stories around us. In the first issue of Out of Necessity, nine photographers explore the necessity of their photography. Amovement inside themselves as well as in the external environment – the City.

 

With backgrounds as different as France, Spain, Italy, Stockholm and Borås, Joakim Kocjancic, Ola Billmont, Stefan Wallin, Rayen Rodriguez Aldacor, Pierre Vincensini, Hans Malm, Jonas Berggren, Andrea Campesi and Rickard Falk give us their views of Stockholm in this new necessary magazine of Photography. Enjoy!"

SLEEPING WITH

THE LIGHTS ON

 

Kehrer Verlag, 2013

 

I left my home town Gustavsberg in the mid eighties. The old hub of the industrial community, the porcelain factory, had by then lost most of its importance to the area. When I moved back twenty years later in 2005 new winds were blowing and Gustavsberg is now one of the fastest growing communities in Sweden.

 

The Gustavsberg of my ancestors, who came here in the 19th century, was not the place for those who were scared of the dark. Today you can barely see the stars on the night sky due to the lights from the factory, the supermarket parking lot and the headlights from the cars passing down the highway.

 

 

 

 

 

Gustavsberg is a community that is subject to constant change, and these photographs are therefore quickly becoming history. So even if the exposure time is between five and twenty minutes, all photographs can in a way be considered as snapshots.

 

Sleeping with the Lights On is published by Kehrer Verlag.
