15:25:20. This image was taken here in Lund and is a part of my book project called "07:27:47". Throughout this project, I have tried to capture the graphic beauty of ordinary environments by focusing on the strict and minimalist aesthetics that arise in the interaction between light, shadows and geometric shapes. Combining it with the immediacy of street photography, it can be seen as a study not only of the urban environment, but also of the relationship between this environment and the human being. Sorted by the hour, minute and second of their exposure, the images form a sequence that takes place during exactly 12 hours. The book contains 76 photographs and was published by Kerber Verlag in September, 2020.
MY NAME IS JONAS DAHLSTRÖM and I live in Malmö, Sweden. I have been taking pictures for as long as I can remember and have always had a particular interest in the aesthetics of urban life. What I like most about photography is the way it makes me look at the world around me with a more focused eye. Photography is like a state of mind that encourages me to be alert and present in the moment - with or without a camera.
