Sune Jonsson: Life and Work

Edited by Charlotta Broady. Text by Val Williams.

Featured image is reproduced from <I>Sune Jonsson: Life and Work</I>.Sune Jonsson (1930-2009) spent most of his life in the county of Västerbotten in the north of Sweden, where he documented the agrarian lifestyles he saw disappearing in the wake of an increasingly urban and industrial society. Subject to the whims of harsh weather, unpredictable seasons and often infertile soil, these men and women lived in constant states of flux: homes were impermanent, self-built structures, crops were few, and animals fewer. Jonsson published his work in a series of 25 photo books, which began in 1959 with Byn med det blå huset (The Village with the Blue House) and ended almost 50 years later with And Time Becomes a Wondrous Thing (2007). These volumes were not solely photographic works: complementing his black-and-white documentary-style pictures were Jonsson's written narratives, a poetic mix of fact and fiction gleaned from interviews with his subjects and combined with his own political and philosophical concerns. Sune Jonsson: Life and Work not only republishes some of the most powerful photographs Jonsson took over the course of his lengthy career, but also provides intimate insight into the artist's historical, literary and social interests. Explicatory text by Val Williams provides contextual analysis.

Sune Jonsson: Life and Work

Sune Jonsson: Life and Work

"Sune Jonsson (1930–2009) occupies a unique place in photographic history. He produced work which explored and made visible the very private lives of the inhabitants of Sweden's most remote regions, producing an image of the northern countryside, which persists, despite Sweden's post-war emergence as a modern and sophisticated society. In the sparsely populated 'inland' of the north, as well as across the farming regions of Sweden, he chronicled the continuing struggle of men and women with weather, season and soil, intimated at the difficulties imposed by isolation and struggle, and injected into this his own politics and social concerns, as well as a homage to a rich and complex past. He described a rural environment settled in impermanent, transient ways, revolving around clearings made in dense forest, self-built houses, a few animals and crops–subsistence living on inhospitable land, its inhabitants characterized by both resilience and resignation." Text excerpt from Val Williams' essay and featured image, captioned "Alvar has picked lilies of the valley for his bride, Arnas, Ornskoldsvik, 1956," are reproduced from Max Ström's exquisite new release, Sune Jonsson: Life and Work. continue to blog
