An become an interesting subject under the lenses of the right photographer. Grilles, broken pieces of glass, stairs, damaged cars. By focusing on everyday objects and extracting from them incredible patterns and colors, the Swedish photographer turns the viewer’s attention to unexpected beauty, encouraging them to look around with new eyes and curiosity.
In series like Sightseeing and The corner, The streets he manages to evoke a similar mystery with human subjects by photographing their backs and rarely showing their faces. The people in these series are usually shown going somewhere or in the middle of completing an everyday activity thus giving us a glimpse of their lives and making us once again curious to what their world is like.
