Thobias Faldt

Some mysterious photography by Sweden-based Thobias Faldt. I read an interview with him where he talked about not wanting to look at a photo immediately after shooting it. The strong feelings of taking the photo then become attached to it, and he feels they can only become “pictures” when those feelings aren’t associated.

I love this last diptych called Alternative Universe. It’s hard to tell at this size but the thing on the left is a cracked piece of ice.
