This book juxtaposes selected street photography from two series by Per L-B Nilsson, a Swedish photographer who has been making pictures in Ireland since the late 1960s, and who later spent two years in 1980s Chicago. His approach to the rough, working-class Irish city and its inhabitants is one of curiosity and candour, which lends his black-and-white images a narrative dialogue. Likewise, Nilsson’s exploration of Chicago, with all its glamour, commerce, and towering skyscrapers, as well as its slums and cultural poverty, can be viewed as an attempt to overcome the city’s geometry and thereby glean differing roles and perspectives through the eyes of its citizens.
