pacifico

The slowly shifting scenarios in a landscape have always fascinated me: it is pure meditation to be outdoors, remaining in the same place, simply focusing for long periods of time on the horizon and scenery. Our sight is fixed but the view is constantly changing. I love that feeling and try to translate it into photography.

The photos in this book were all taken in Baja California Sur, Mexico, from the same mountain peak. I hiked up with my camera and Polaroid films to watch the mighty Pacific Ocean and photograph it daily for a couple of months between 2016 and 2018. Early in the morning, at midday or sunset. The sea oscillating from calm and gleaming to dark and roaring. No one day was like another.

My Pacifico pictures reflect the human need for silence and contemplation. A state of mind where the flashing impressions and stresses of everyday life are far away. What remains are our original values, roots and tranquility. What could be more elementary than the ocean, the mountains and the earth?

Irrblosset & lindanserskan

Fotografen Dan Isaac Wallin har under närmare två års tid tillbringat en stor del av sin fritid vid Tobiasgården utanför Kungälv, en boendegemenskap för personer med diagnosen autism och i vissa fall också andra former av grav psykisk störning. Irrblosset och Lindanserskan presenterar ett urval av de porträtt som han tecknat under sina besök och för första gången presenteras också Dan Wallins fotografi i bokform. Irrblosset och Lindanserskan är i första hand en fotografisk skildring men boken innehåller också en introduktion till autismens problematik och kortare poetiska stycken författade av Rune Lindström, verksamhetsansvarig vid Tobiasgården.

(Will-o' the-wisp and line dancer)
The feeling of being enclosed within oneself, not being able to reach out to the environment or to get out of oneself with such force that it explodes. These are usual conditions at Tobias' Farm. But behind all the frustration is the joy and laughter that so often pop up. Sometimes it has felt like seeking contact with the unconnectable, even though there has been very good communication only one has had the patience. Getting to meet these amazing people has been very rewarding. Memories that I will always carry with me. Moments of joy and moments of chaos. You have taught me so much. The pictures in this book are from 2003-2005.

All text in the book is in Swedish.
