Exhibition at Fotografiska, Stockholm 6 May - 14 June, 2011
Starting out from Stockholm, Jacob Felländer has conducted a photographic experiment. Over twelve days, he visited in turn New York, Los Angeles, Hong Kong, Bombay, Dubai and Paris with the intent of capturing the world in one single negative.
Jacob Felländer says: I made a journey around the world, visiting its most densely populated cities. As places and people merged before me, I grew increasingly fascinated at how close together we all live. Our habitat in these places may seem grotesque but we actually get along surprisingly well in our cities. We may think that we are different, we may think we like or dislike each other. But still, we choose to live extremely close to one another: next to, underneath, on top of. Close. Close together.
