Gingerbread Monument

“Flashes adding light, reminds me of disengaging the tree’s photosynthesis at night. The trigger finger makes something grow from the sight of it. The pictures eternalize what only exists for the moment – a snowman, a flower of foil dropped on the floor, a car drive in the night, or - a gingerbread monument.”
Viktor Johansson 2008.

Gingerbread Monument is a book of photographs compiled over three years (2006–2008), mainly in Sweden. Also, it is a book of poems by writer Viktor Johansson. The poetry reflects upon the photographs and the book design reflects the editing; the blank varnished pages indicate that photographs are missing, that they were removed as a part of the editing process. What is left is a poetic and visual compilation of moments where lightnings appear for a clear sky.
Gingerbread Monument was released in October 2008.
