by Henrik Nygren
Publisher's Description
Sune Jonsson is one of Sweden’s most prominent documentary photographers whose work has been compared to both Walker Evans and August Sander. For more than half a century he has, with the help of his camera and pen, come close to people and environments throughout Sweden. Jonsson’s work has encompassed different societies in transition, as well as the wonders of everyday life and the uniqueness of every individual’s history, always with great skill, emotion, empathy and respect for his subject’s integrity. His home district, Västerbotten, has often been the motif for his work, but over the years he has also worked in New York, Congo, Prague, Bornholm, and Attsjö in Småland. Jonsson’s debut book “Byn med det blå huset” was published in 1959 and since then he has published more than twenty important picture books, as well as short stories, novels and documentary films.
