Långt fårn Stockholm (Far from Stockholm) finds JH Engström on a journey into the surrounding world away from the big city. Shifting between isolated small communities and the untamed wilderness of the Swedish landscape -Engström weaves the two worlds with portraits of ‘dance bands’, youths etc and juxtaposing them amongst icy rivers, forests and disappearing roads. By weaving these themes, Engstrom tells at once a poetic solitary and contemplative story whilst returning to the heart and structure of the small community.
JH Engström is a photographer and artist based in Stockholm.
