Contemporary Swedish Photography is an outstanding book. Generous in format and richly illustrated, it provides an overview of Swedens photography scene, from the legendary Christer Strömholm to todays wide range of eminent photographers. The book covers the work of over 50 photographers in alphabetical order, each presented with an introductory text and sumptuous images highlighting their most important characteristics. An insightful opening essay sheds light on the local historical context and outlines the technological and conceptual development of the medium, while American critic and curator Charlotte Cotton adds an international perspective.
