This book explores Gunnar Smoliansky’s photographic oeuvre, focusing on nine publications originally created by Smoliansky in cooperation with art director Henrik Nygren between 2002 and 2008.

These include both slim volumes and an imposing monograph. With one exception, all were originally published in Swedish, but all have been translated to English for this publication. A newly written tenth chapter brings this essential artistic career up to the present day.

Despite the range of themes and material, the intention throughout has been the same: to try to shine a light on a man of integrity, an artist whose life work was as unique as it was consistent – Henrik Nygren.
