“An emptiness permeates our cities, smaller towns, and moves along the roads. It did not use to be there. When it began to emerge, it went undetected for some time, suppressed beneath a kind of dizzy tipsiness that spread across the country and was everywhere, and which perhaps transformed the very fundamentals of that country. That is why I dread those houses, that sit on the outskirts of any medium sized town, and were constructed in a period of weeks early in the decade. –Goran Greider, writing about Lars Tunbjork’s photographs.”
About Lars Tunbjork
Lars Tunbjork (b. 1956). Whether creating an acid portrait of Sweden, representing the nightmarish world of business offices. Or tapping into the desolate uniformity of petrified, petit-bourgeois neighbourhoods, examining the state of marginalised peoples in a nation praised for its system of social protection. Even exploring the strangeness of a town on the cusp of the Arctic Circle. Lars Tunbjörk has totally forgotten his black and white beginnings.
However, all his energy is now devoted to the exploration of colour. Which he approaches in the style of 1970’s American photographers. So, this is his starting point for questioning the world, a series of interrogations more than observations, which he develops without pessimism but with an undeniable affliction softened by a biting humour. Therefore, over time, his approach has become radicalised and purified by being less and less anecdotal. Consequentially, his series no longer represents characters but rather the often absurd track of their presence and their actions.
