"In 2011 I received a residency grant from Swedish Association of Professional Photographers (SFF) To spend a week in The Swedish House in Kavala, Greece. I photographed this sleepy, off seasoned, small town constantly day and night for the whole week and learned to love the cheapest Retsina at the same time. I collected the material in a print-on-demand book: The Town, the House and the Cross."
About the Book
In 2011, we spent a week in October in the Swedish Institutes´ house in Kavala, Greece. When we arrive the best of summer has passed. While autumn is yet to come, there are inbetween- days, uneven and odd. We make of them the best we can. Christer uses his time as the Swedish Professional Photographers Association Fellow in ways photographers so often tend to do. Åsa, who is accompanying, writes. Kavalla greets us to an afterseason, both as tourist town and as residence. In our short time here, one of the few words we learn to read in greek means “To Let”.
