Publisher's Description
What is the world coming to? If you ask Swedish photographer Joakim Eneroth, the answer is bleak at best. Eneroth captures our growing fear, isolation and lack of trust in a series of images that may at first seem quite staid. His Waiting (2005) series, for example, appears to be the same image of sea and sky repeated over and over. It is actually the Thai coast in the weeks after the 2005 tsunami. It had been photographed by media from all over the world just the previous week, but Eneroth perversely caught the water and sky in a calm moment, urging us towards contemplation-but not letting us relax completely into a scenic stupor. In Swedish Red, Eneroth examines the idea of home-challenging our notion of perfection and security. He poses the idea that fear, or the need for security, easily evolves into deep isolation.
