Photographs by Lars Tunbjork. Text by Goran Odbratt.
Steidl, Gottingen, 2003. 106 pp., 49 color illustrations, 11½x10½".

Made primarily in the suburbs of Stockholm (but also in Boras, Hedemora, Espevik, and other Swedish towns), Tunbjork's saturated color photographs immediately call to mind William Eggleston's images of suburban America. But upon a closer look, his style and method is far less 'democratic' than the American master. There is an homage to structure taking place within these pages that is decidedly quieter than the snapshot liveliness of Eggleston's world. For one thing, there are far fewer humans included within the frame, and while the attention to color and the quirkiness of suburbia is plentiful, likewise the absence of people adds to the slightly eerie stillness. Office is equally fascinating as a body of work. Tunbjork applies the same quality of seeing, but to populated office environments.
