Editor, designer and publisher of iconic Swedish artist and photographer Gerry Johansson’s limited edition photo-book Antarktis.
In 2001, through a grant from the Swedish Polar Research Secretariat, Gerry traveled to the inaccessible and distinct landscape of Antarctica on a research trip for two months. With him on the journey he had a large-format camera and his fearless curiosity. The series of photos eventuate in an unusual reality relevant perspective, and capture the astonishing non-distance relationship between physicality and nature. The series was exhibited at the Museum of Modern Art in 2003 in Stockholm, Sweden.
Foreword by landscape architect Thorbjörn Andersson, LAR/MSA.
The extent of its special edition and the amount of images is a homage to the amount of bird species in the Antarctic region.
