Description

For over thirty years, celebrated Swedish artist Dawid has been making series of photographically based artworks examining the nature of the medium and exploring issues of perception. He began taking photographs in the late sixties, documenting incongruous moments with a wry sense of humor, until he established his signature style of stark graphic illustration, initiated with the seminal Rost series. His recent work has utilized the possibilities of digitalization, and this book elaborates the vision of an image-maker whose life's work reflects, criticizes, and parallels the checkered history and changing status of photography. This stunningly designed and extensive book constitutes the first comprehensive survey of Dawid's work. The publication includes fictional and factual essays by Michael Mack, considering the artist's influence and context--personal, cultural, and art-historical--and exploring the psychological, philosophical and often bizarre depths of his work.
