This is August Eriksson’s third book for which he uses walking as a starting point. He walks away from familiarity to achieve an alienation from his home city of Stockholm, in order to then return to this familiar place and be able to see it again for the first time. The series of more than 60 images was made over a period of three years, but collectively they somehow step outside any sense of time passing. Rather, they seem to constitute a single portrait of Stockholm in summer, itself a world of conflicting emotions. Here we find endless freedom and ease, nostalgia and exhilaration, but also a sense of fleeting life and a curiosity about the unknown, all while feeling at home.
