J.H. Engström is one of those photographers who introduced the Swedish photography in the world of contemporary art over the past decade. Since his success with the book Trying to Dance that Robert Frank praised so much, J.H. Engström has received numerous awards and has published numerous books, including From Back Home with his friend Anders Petersen.
Today, J.H. Engström is back with images taken in his youth and offers us a moving 'road trip' through Europe and the United States in the last century, seen through the always amazed eye of the photographer.
Born in 1969 in Karlstad, Sweden, J.H. Engström lives and works in Sweden. Former assistant of fashion photographer Mario Testino and of Anders Petersen, he published his first book, Shelter, in 1997. Since that, J.H. Engström travelled the world and developed a personal work which, outside the conventions of portraiture, still life and landscape, favors the daily life of the photographer and his family. His works can be seen in major public collections worldwide.
