Sweden
2018

During his lifetime, Lars Tunbjörk has drawn an acidic portrait of contemporary life in Sweden, his home country.

He always noticed greatness in the ordinary, whether representing the nightmarish world of business offices or the desolate uniformity of petrified, petit-bourgeois neighborhoods, examining the state of marginalized people in a nation praised for its system of social protection, or exploring the strangeness of a town on the cusp of the Arctic Circle. "I decided to only photograph things that I knew. " He explained.

Lars Tunbjörk quickly forgot the black and white of his beginnings. From close-up portraits to still life, from empty spaces to radical landscapes, he entrusts color with the task of affirming his point of view. His approach, both humorous and melancholic, gave an almost surrealist dimension to the daily life he photographs.

These photographs are from the series "Country beside itself", "I love Boras", "Home" and "Vinter".
