Involuntary memory (2016-2017)
Series of images of what i remember of my home country after fourteen years of living somewhere else. I'm investigating what time and distance does to a memory, why do certain places and events remain imprinted in my mind while other fade away?
What defines national identity? The individuals I have photographed are Swedish citizens, Swedish nationals, and by many definitions, Swedish.
However, their various backgrounds, such as where they are born, having one or two parents from here or abroad, being born here or abroad, living here or abroad, results in them in being perceived as either Swedish or not.
What is the definition of Swedish to me? What makes one person more Swedish than another?
