Major Swedish photographer, Gunnar Smoliansky has devoted himself to photography since the early 1950s. . 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 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.
The book consists of 172 images and an essay in Swedish and English by Johanna Ekström. The majority of the images have not been published before. Gunnar Smoliansky //Diary is edited by Gerry Johansson and Jäger Arén.
First edition of 1350 copies.
