Photographs by Peter de Ru.
Journal, 2008. 72 pp., 34 color illustrations, 9½x11".
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. Through engagement with Sven’s life, the viewer becomes conscious of
different existential aspects such as the passage of time and the choice individuals
face in the course of a lifetime.
