Simon Johansson – Across the Bridge
"To approach what is there every day, what you feel and are so naturally a part of – that takes courage and a particularly prestigeless attitude. Simon Johansson shows this in his book. More than that, he does it well."
Across the Bridge is Swedish photographer Simon Johansson's first book.
"The sound of the Öland Bridge expansion hoints against the tyres. The first years, when the bridge was new, islanders would come out in droves along the road to look at he invasion of the mainlanders. The don't anymore. Apart from that most things have kept the same, time runs slower here. I see friendship, happiness, love, a breakup and a sorrow. There is so much ugliness here. So much beauty."
