Skogsbärbranschen – Photo Book Grant 2016

 

In order to promote these grants and mark the significance of photography books already this summer, we have chosen to award photographer Johannes Samuelsson a grant of SEK 20,000 for his book project Skogsbärbranschen.

 

Skogsbärbranschen is based on Johannes Samuelsson’s photographs and is a collaboration with two cultural geographers and researchers at Umeå University: Madeleine Eriksson and Aina Tollefsen. It is about the forest-berry industry in Norrland: about structural organisation, economic circumstances, changes in the countryside, migration and local and global relationships. The project is cross-disciplinary, highly relevant and very original.
