Book: “Phoetry – Poetic Photography of Lund”

Poetry + Photography = Phoetry!

This is my 2012 book containing 75 photographs from Lund, the city I live in, in southern Sweden. I did everything including the design at the online super-quality art (and other) book publisher, Blurp. This is also where you may browse the entire book or buy it as an e-book for your tablet.

Its superb paper quality and crisp colours makes it the ideal coffee table book, gift or your best memory from your visit – or send it to a friend abroad. The municipality already uses it as a gift to visitors from abroad.

Hopefully, the pictures inside speak for themselves. I haven’t tried to catch “tourist” Lund but, rather, the diversity and dynamics, the people and places as well as the – well – poetry of the place. These are images you won’t find when you google Lund.

Thanks to online publishing, this is an open-ended book. Each future edition will be unique since a few photos are dropped and new added. And as an artist would, I’ve signed and numbered each book. I hope you feel it’s a little special. Like Lund itself.

How to get “Phoetry”

You may order it directly online  – but then it will not be signed or numbered. You may also buy it numbered and signed at some ten places in Lund – thus, the Tourist Office, Kulturen, Jäger & Jansson Gallery, Hotell Lundia, Mattsons Foto, Studio K2, Lunds Stenugnsbakeri, Arken Bookstore, Skånekraft and Bloom. Third, call me on 0046 738 525200 or write at janoberg@mac.com and you can obtain it at my studio in Lund.
