YOU WANT TO BE A LITTLE BIT BY YOURSELF
2015- You want to be a little bit by yourself is a study in street environment where the mobile phones shape our movements.
On five occasions in the months of May between 2015 and 2018, at the same spot in Stockholm, I have photographed people passing by with their mobile phones and headphones.
At the start of the project I was uncertain of how long I would have to wait, but it turned out that most of the people who walked passed during the hour I was standing there were focused on their devices.
My intention has been to highlight the spontaneous expression and have therefore chosen street photography as the working method. I looked for a bright and uniform background, as I wanted to highlight our movement patterns.
The project contains 60 silver gelatine photographs and a book with the summary of the interviews.
