Intrinsic Dialogue

Contemporary Swedish Photography

Produced by Art and Theory Publishing, Contemporary Swedish Photography is an overview of the stunning imagery being captured by Swedish artists. The book reveals the significant contribution Sweden has made to contemporary visual art, beginning with legendary practitioner Christer Strömholm and including today’s wide range of eminent photographers. Showcasing over 50 individuals, the volume reflects a vast range of artists with differences in age, background and education, and variety in approaches to shooting documentary, experimental, advertising, fashion and fine art imagery. The carefully curated selection does not summarise the past, but instead develops a conversation between the contributors, highlighting the groundbreaking style associated with image-making in Scandinavia. This collection of photographs includes works from Maria Friberg, Denise Grünstein and Petrus Olsson, amongst others. The images are extracted from Contemporary Swedish Photography, which is available to buy at
