Our latest featured interview with Åke E:son Lindman is online on arcspace.com
Åke E:son Lindman is a prolific architectural photographer based in Sweden. After graduating from the University College of Arts, Crafts and Design in Stockholm in 1975, he started working with documentary photography. After documenting the Bo85 Housing EXPO, Lindman started focusing on architectural photography.
Since then, he has being involved in many projects for architects like Carlos Scarpa, Rafael Moneo, Per Friberg, Gert Wingardh, Ralph Erskine, on thematic collections 'Gardens of Italy', 'Fourteen Swedish Embassies', 'Swedish Country House', among others, and his personal project 'Pure Architecture'.
In the words of Olof Hultin, former editor-in-chief Arkitektur magazine:
Åke E:son Lindman is the Swedish architectural photographer who continually and with a sure instinct seeks to develop his proffessionalism- which as an editor one appreciates. Not all photographers share his genuine interest in architecture. This means that he sees the architecture, not the image, as what is most important. As a result he is now succeeding more and more in photographing the space and not the object. That is where the wheat is really seperated from the chaff!
We are pleased to present a selection of Mr. Lindman's photographic work along with an interview he gave to Julia Tedroff from Gothenburg Photography School.
