La Résidence

@ Engström, JH



La Résidence is a book created after JH Engström had been in residence in Brussels; where he photographed the city, the street life, the cafés, the people. By putting these images in perspective through texts from his own journal, the artist tells the story of why this residence experience was a failure.

This is very well explained by Engström himself in a interview for the French blog Des Livres et des Photos (French only); an interesting interview on this specific aspect of this book, but also quite interesting about the artist's whole career.
