Sthlm Phone Home is a feverish, introverted diary, grimy and dreamlike,with surrealist undertones.This series of black-and-white photographs spans the years 2011 to 2015 and restricts itself to pho- tographs taken in Stockholm using an iPhone - a mobile device that the photographer Per Englund first acquired because of its map functions, but which later became an important tool for him. In the foreword, Englund talks about his compulsive photo collecting, unpleasant dreams and the difference between snapshots and pictures and how they occur. Locations, dates and times are given for every exposure in a chronological index.Englund moved to Stockholm from his hometown Gothenburg almost ten years ago, and the camera came to be used both as a shield and as a battering-ram in the unfamiliar city. The result is a piece of black-and-white pictorial poetry in which modern technology meets traditional craft.Dokument Press have previously published Per Englund's books Life Geos On (2009) and The Beautiful Struggle (2006).
