Swedish photographer Tobias Faldth, born in 1978, is a collector of images. He compiles photographs, like notes in a diary, into stories and narratives. It is never clear whether they are his images and experiences or simple collections of found imagery. Together they culminate in one fictional year of a life, Year One. What these disparate images have in common is a reliance on unnatural lighting–often a flash is used, and even when taken during daylight, the images tend to be washed out, a bit dreamlike. Faldth is as interested in raising questions of authorship as he is in constructing a narrative, yet the photographs have a visual congruency that is rare among artists who trade in found imagery. Highly prolific as an image-maker, this is Faldth first book.
