This magnificent volume, by far the largest monograph on Anders Petersen to date, reproduces more than 250 of Petersen’s most celebrated photographs.

"Exhibitions are more fleeting, they disappear. But books remain and retain another dignity, another presence…you don’t see pictures the same way when you sink into a book as when you’re strolling around an exhibition." - Anders Petersen

Anders Petersen is one of Europe’s most beloved documentary photographers. His black-and-white portraits, often of persons at the fringes of society-- prostitutes, transvestites, drunks and drug addicts--evince a rare compassion and warmth, and his images of lovers (one famous example of which adorns the cover of Tom Waits’ Rain Dogs) have come to constitute recurrent motifs throughout his oeuvre, expressing his "exaltation of humanity" (as a recent exhibition was titled). The 30 or so books Andersen has published over the course of his career have become an important part of the photo-book canon--most famously the 1978 book Café Lehmitz, which depicted Hamburg’s seedy Reeperbahn in the late 1960s and 70s. In addition, Hasse Persson, former head of the Hasselblad Center and former director of the Borås Art Museum in Sweden, contributes a concise biography of Petersen’s life and methodology. An essay by Urs Stahel--curator, art critic and director of the Fotomuseum Winthertur in Zürich--further illuminates Petersen’s photography from an international perspective.

Anders Petersen was born 1944 in Stockholm, Sweden. In 1967 he began photographing the Café Lehmitz in Hamburg, where, in 1970, he held his first solo exhibition behind the bar, with 350 photographs nailed to the wall. In 1973 Petersen published his first photo book, Gröna Lund, which depicted an amusement park in Stockholm. Swedish photographer Anders Petersen was elected Photographer of the Year at the Rencontres d’Arles in 2003. In 2007, he was one of the four world finalists in the prestigious Deutsche Börse Photography Prize.

PRAISE AND REVIEWS

Dazed Digital

Sian Dolding

"The definitive monograph by Anders Petersen"

1000 Words

Michael Grieve

"a rich display spanning the entirety of Petersen’s forty-year oeuvre, edited and sequenced to make wonderful visual associations in layouts that combine the very recent with the very old and everything in between. The work defines Petersen’s consistent approach, singular in style and yet rewarding in content. Quirky humour, melancholy and longing ooze from the page.... Petersen has proved, without doubt, that he is one of the most important and influential contemporary photographers, and that he is who he is."

A-N

Tim Clark

"the black and white photographs contained in this delicious monograph are coloured with emotion, experience and a distinct sensitivity towards his subjects.... raw and hypnotic"

GALO

Sandra Bertrand

"informative… illuminating…. Opening the current monograph, you don’t simply gaze at a Petersen image; you enter it."

Anders Petersen

Featured image is reproduced from Max Ström's exquisite new monograph on Swedish photographer Anders Petersen. Essayist Hasse Persson writes, "Anders Petersen wants people to recognize themselves in his images. His career has been about photography that creates recognition. He is genuinely interested in the people he meets and his humanistic approach is not about border demarcation. Many accuse Anders of solely depicting outsiders, but this production embraces people from all social classes. And nowhere is there repudiation, rather recognition. 'For me, the photographic instant is also about intimacy with myself. To approach the experience of reality and do more than just describe it. And to try to be present in the experience. At times it's sweet; sometimes I pick up my camera and life jumps into it, like rabbits. Everything is in play.'" continue to blog
