Johan Willner's Boy Stories

Oh boy, we just got a bunch of new art books and I can’t get over a particular one titled BOY STORIES. Published by Hatje Cantz, the book showcases the works of Swedish photographer Johan Willner as he attempts to recreate past memories from his childhood, not necessarily through specific events, but rather, in the elusive sense of fragments and impressions.

The photograph on the cover captured my attention instantly: a young boy sits in a car with a bloody face, while an adult waits outside the vehicle face out of frame, and the rest of the children look on in the background, some grinning, some expressionless. The rest of the book is just as spellbinding, and I urge you to check out Willner’s website for some higher quality images.
