Publisher's Description
Originally published in 1967, Poste Restante has become one of the most collectible photography books from the mid-twentieth century, ranking alongside the better-known publications of Robert Frank and Ed van der Elsken. This photographic autobiography details Strömholm’s extensive travels across the globe in a book constructed as an Existentialist diary. Juxtaposing the urbane and the macabre, combining portraiture and street scenes with abstract photographic fragments, the book uses metaphor and visual pun in an unrelenting stream of consciousness. In its sequence and design, it is a book that prefigures much of contemporary photographic publishing and art practice.
