With his recent photobook, “Untitled”, Swedish photographer Erik Östensson invites us to look with fresh, childlike eyes, unobstructed by constructed notions of the world around us. Working with the idea that our preconceived notions limit our experience of our environments, allowing us to see only a fraction, Östensson aims to make images that allow the viewer to see in new ways. He explains:
“I do this by depicting objects from a new angle and by putting them in a new context. Hopefully past notions are replaced and the meaning of familiar objects get an opportunity to expand. In this way a new contact can be created between the objects and the viewer.”
“Untitled” was published by Kehrer Verlag in 2019.
