Présentation du projet sur le site de l'auteur :

"I started working on my Paradise essay in 2006, when I moved back to Stockholm after living in different European cities. Though born and raised in Milan, as a half-Swede I have always felt connected to this city.

The approach of my photography is direct, intuitive and fast. I'm trying to be faster than my second thoughts. I see it as an exercise in listening to my instinct without thinking too much. Confronted with an atmosphere quite different to the stereotypical image of Stockholm, I started documenting this darker mood, the grittier side of daily life up here in the north. The essay reflects my instant reactions to the ambiguity of a place I am so deeply related to through my family history.

In a broader sense, I want it to be primarily an artistic report on the consumerist and capitalistic aspects of western European urban culture. Paradise stands for the illusion of this system. It’s the dream we are following through billboards, TV and the Internet. My Paradise version, the lesser known image of this society, is best rendered in a dark, expressive style; as a straight black and white poem of reality, suspended between dreams/nightmares and reality. (…)

I don't believe that photography is reliable for truths. I have to go beyond objectivity and make it personal. It's a part of my life. I'm not trying to say this is how reality looks, but rather, that this is my reality, my view of life and myself."

Une photographie très directe et très forte, des images granuleuses magnifiques, un très beau livre !
