The objects are photo-books and parts of the art project “goodbye hello goodbye”. The books are made to be exposed as art objects, that can be hold by hands and explored by the audience as a part of the project goodbye hello goodbye. All images are collected from journeys to southwest China. I want the photos to be seen as stories connected to the wool-photography and the other photos shown in the project. There are a limited edition of 25 of each book. The stories are based on my documentation from small local societies, not yet influenced by modern lifestyle. Each object/book has a title that indicates what the story focuses on, and together they constitute a series. Each book has a monochrome color on the hardcover. I try to tell stories from what I understand as the old world: a world where handcraft, high aesthetic sense and technically skills are valued and used in all fields. We see these lifestyles and societies as poor conditions, but I see richness in many ways. The perspective can give the books an anthropological character, but there are no texts in the books, only a title on the cover of each book. I try to come beyond the “exotic” content, it is the direct experience of each image and the reflections it gives to the observers, that I see as important. I like the open way a photo book can tell stories. The observer can choose which images she likes to view, she can pass others, view as long or short time as wished, start from the beginning or at the end. Still, the images I have chosen, and my way of editing, leads the observer through the books and in that matter accompanying me on my journeys. The titles and chosen photos in each book/object, also reflects how I, a person from the western world, understand the the old culture in this part of the eastern world.
