[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...
I try to work with a quite objective, critical, and humorous eye on the world.
Everything gets filtered through the artist’s eyes.
