Bjorn Dawidsson

by Michael Mack
Publisher's Description
"The Swedish artist Dawid has for over thirty years been making series of photographically based artworks examining the nature of the medium and exploring issues of perception. He began photographing in the late sixties, documenting incongruous moments with a wry sense of humor, until he established his signature style of stark graphic illustration, initiated by the seminal Rost series. Recent work has utilized the possibilities of digitalization and this book elaborates the vision of an image-maker whose life's work reflects, criticizes and parallels the chequered history and changing status of photography. This beautifully designed and extensive book constitutes the first comprehensive survey of Dawid's work. The publication will include fictional and factual essays by Michael Mack, considering the artist's influences and context - personal, cultural and art historical - an exploring the psychological, philosophical and often bizarre depths of his work."-the publisher.
