Detroit: Resurgent Cineribus
- English text coming soon -
Detroit har under 200 år pendlat mellan ljus och mörker. År 1805 brann staden ned helt, men befolkningen på 600 övergav inte sitt Detroit. Stadens motto skrevs där och då: Speramus meliora; resurgent cineribus- We hope for better things; it shall rise from the ashes.
Under 1900-talets första hälft var Detroit USA:s främsta bilproducent. Stadens kraftiga fokus på en enstaka industri ihop med eskalerande raskonflikter runtom Detroit ledde till dess nedgång. Till slut tog sig staden ur en svår konkurs år 2014.
Nu ska Detroit åter resa sig ur askan, men vägen är lång och ömtålig.
As many times as it has been said, photography can often act as a way to remember things, big and small. I sometimes find myself forgetting things that have happened the past days, this is my diary where I store my memories.
My friends and I lived on this island called Biskops Arnö outside of Stockholm, Sweden, for about a year while studying photography. It's a tiny little island that consists of a few residents, some farmland and mostly students. The photos are all from one evening close to our summer holidays at the end of our second year, we would not be coming back to the island to study again.
Eie and Kerstin lived together for 40 years in a house in Jakobsberg, Stockholm. They then moved to an apartment, soon thereafter Kerstin grew ill and passed away in the fall of 2016. Eie now lives alone in the apartment with five rooms, where two lives are compressed into one. Surrounded by memories, finding new purpose in your everyday live with a troubled heart wears on your fortitude, still life has to slowly move on.
