Lars Tunbjörk
[Photographer, b. 1956, Borås, Sweden, d. 2015, Stockholm.]

 I try to take photos like an alien, or a small child. 
 …I photographed a lot of empty interiors: welfare offices just after family therapy, empty reception rooms. I noticed that even after the people left, a feeling of them stayed in the room, a sense of sadness. 
 When I photograph now, I try to imagine that I’d never seen a place like this before. 
 I want to be a stranger. I want to look at [things] a little bit from a distance and with a critical eye, concentrating on this mad theater... 
 Everything gets filtered through the artist’s eyes. 
 I try to work with a quite objective, critical, and humorous eye on the world.
