This richly illustrated double-volume is published to coincide with the exhibition ‘Between Realities: Photography in Sweden 1970-2000’ in Gothenburg. The range of featured photographers, active in Sweden in recent decades, reflects the pivotal trends and changes taking place in the field, and offers a history of photography in the country told through multiple voices and by key figures from the various periods. Using carefully selected examples of work, past exhibitions, historical documents and critical analyses, it provides an exhaustive history of how various ideals, positions and trends have shaped Swedish practice, from artistic to documentary and commercial approaches.
