Vicinity & Ceilings
Publisher Art And Theory Publishing
Time and place have a central significance in Swedish photographer Lennart Durehed’s work, manifested in titles that usually refer to specific cities or neighbourhoods. Often utilising reflections to great effect, surroundings become mirrored by glossy facades of glass and metal. This creates visual layers and, like a montage, ambivalent and angular spatialities arise. Two series are included in this book, ‘Vicinity’ and ‘Ceilings’, in which buildings are seldom depicted in their entirety; rather, as details and segments of the urban realm that emphasise the image as an image, drawing out the graphic interplay between surface and depth through their sharp composition.
