GUNNAR SMOLIANSKY /// DIARY         de | en


Ok, this never happened before.
I recommend a book that I haven't seen so far.

Anyway, I have reasons:

I'm a great admirer of Gunnar Smoliansky's photography.

Gerry Johansson together with Jäger Arén took care for the edit and the production of the book. I just can't imagine that they failed to make a great book.

This is what the book makers say:

Gunnar Smoliansky is a major Swedish photographer. He has devoted himself to photography since the early 1950s. Smoliansky has been an independent artist since the 1970s. Gunnar Smoliansky works exclusively in black and white and throughout his career, he has transformed his photographed motifs into completed photos in the darkroom. Stockholm is the main focus of Smoliansky’s photographic world, particularly the areas of Södermalm and Saltsjö-Boo. From a geographic point of view, the photographs of Gunnar Smoliansky are quite restricted in range. This has not, however, kept him from being regarded as one of the great world photographers.

The images in Gunnar Smoliansky Diary are a selection of the material Gunnar began to work with and to print methodically during the 1980s. Some of the material was also exhibited at the time – at Moderna, Lunds Konsthall, and galleries including Babar and Lido. These prints that consolidated his position as a major photographer. The book consists of 172 images and an essay by Johanna Ekström.

A major part of the images has not been published before. Gunnar Smoliansky Diary is edited by Gerry Johansson and Jäger Arén.

A Special Edition with signed print is also available.
