Hammarkullen – 424, 2017

For more than a decade I have photographed my living environment in Hammarkullen, a suburb of Göteborg in Sweden. Göran Greider, journalist, author and poet, writes: “Hammarkullen has a kind of notoriety in Sweden. It is one of those suburban names that frame the one-sided image of what a Million Program suburb is. But when the forest, the trails, the trees, the magpie nests get to take part they open other views into Hammarkullen and make the place more real. I see a big, friendly, green hand that holds little Hammarkullen like a child.”
