Lars Tunbjörk - Home, Steidl, 2003, Göttingen

 

Hardcover cloth bound with tipped in image.

After his earlier series on leisure time and the world of office labor, Lars Tunbjork returned to his childhood neighborhood to photograph his mother's house. The experience intrigued him, and he continued shooting in similar areas around Sweden. Saturated with other people's personal memories, his photographs convey the peculiar atmosphere of silence familiar in middle-class housing districts, not only in Sweden but in other countries as well. If on the surface his images purport to investigate the private domestic realm in terms of architecture, home decorating styles, and garden culture, as seen in Sweden during the latest two decades, under these multiple, quiet surfaces they reveal apocalyptically more. Home is the final book in a trilogy, following Country Beside Itself and Office.
