Village

Village is a new book by Swedish photographers Klara Källström and Thobias Fäldt. It explores a complex web of language politics of Canada and the very format of photobook.

Language is both means for communication and a platform for politics in Canada. Especially in Quebec, where a forgotten layer of indigenous linguistic history lies. Photographers explore this delicate legacy employing a novel use of documentary photography. It includes using the photographic caption in a conceptual way and locates the project within the history of subjective documentary, especially quoting Robert Frank’s famous The Americans in its references.

In its core Village is a document of certain time and place, thus by extension a project of documentary photography, but one with concept and attitude. Layers of politics, history and culture are revealed to a curious viewer, as she gets deeper into the narrative presented in the book’s pages. Between the politics of language and acuteness of vision, Village suggests layers of conflicting meanings on its apparently two-dimensional surface.

Wikiland 2007-07-12 - 00:59:46

After 2011, the Wikiland project has continued and the timespan has changed to 2007-07-12–00:59:46. It now revolves around the film medium and a leaked gun-camera-video from 12 July 2007, when Reuters Photographers and civilians where gunned down from an Apache helicopter in Baghdad. The publication of the video in 2010 shocked the world, but the focus from the event soon changed thereafter.
In 2013 the topic was raised again, but then as a narrative element in the Disney production “Fifth Estate“ (Touchstone Pictures / Disney, 2013). 00:59:46 is a moment in this movie where the boundary between a real and a fictional person (Julian Assange / Benedict Cumberbatch) seem dissolved.
The person whom we search for in the tabloid now returns as a fictional character played by a Hollywood movie star. The time span displays the fictional capability to change tragedies of this kind into harmless occasions.

Wikiland 2007-07-12–00:59:46 was released during NY Art Book Fair
at MoMA PS1 in September 2014

A Beach

Like pebbles on the sea-shore, a reminder that time can turn mountains into sand, our memories are polished, eroded and transformed in our minds until we can no longer be sure if they bear any semblance to what they once were. A Beach is an exploration of the erosion of history. A History, so dangerous, that its elimination has become physical.
(…)

A Beach consists of photographs from the Arab city of Jaffa, south of Tel Aviv along with a photograph of the same place taken by the French photographer Félix Bonfils in 1880, and a childhood memory. The buildings that are visible in Bonfils photograph is now demolished to the ground to make way for a modern boardwalk as a result of the occupation and as part of gentrification in Tel Aviv. The only sign of the missing houses are pieces of mosaic from its tiles found on the beach in Jaffa. A Beach was released during Offprint Paris in November 2013

The book was released at Offprint Paris, Paris Photo, November 2013.

Gottsunda

In the autumn of 2012, artist Erik Krikortz initiated a workshop in photography and writing for teenagers in Gottsunda, a suburb in Uppsala, Sweden. The workshop was held by photographers Klara Källström and Thobias Fäldt together with poet Viktor Johansson and physically realized in a book by 1:2:3. The idea of the workshop was to encourage the participants to share their own stories about Gottsunda, a place which media frequently portrays as a problem affected area. This book is a result of the told, written and visualized stories from the time the group spent together.

The participants of the workshop were: Blini Beqa, Olivia Gustafsson, Sergej Brändén, Hanna Rönntoft, Linnea Carlsson Uggla, Arjanit Beqaj, Johan Järvenson, Linnea Sitell and Kerim Ashkar.
