Publisher's Description
Sven, now aged 88, has lived for his entire life in the village of Boda, southwest of Stockholm, and lives in the house that his father built in 1925. This absorbing and thought-provoking photographic essay documents Sven’s daily life, routines and surroundings through 34 full-colour photographs presented bound in this handsome edition.
