fund a mental.
The concept is based on the Buddhist teaching of the three marks of existence: impermanence, suffering and emptiness. Characteristic for its aesthetic is asymmetry, roughness and simplicity - and a recognition of all natural objects and processes.
The "wabi-sabi way of seeing" is central to the Swedish- based street photographer, Jesper Blomqvist. His interest in the plainness of reality can be found in all of his recent works. The Buddhist concept therefore gives us viewers a possible map of interpretation to his pictures.
Presented in this catalogue is a series of close-ups from the inside of dumpsters. It"s a follow up to a project where Jesper Blomqvist macro- portrayed another everyday urban object - electrical enclosures - which finally became a renowned exhibition and a book (utan titel, EklundhPaglert förlag, 2012-2013).
Both of these photographic series proves how beauty can thrive in the most unexpected places - you just have to know what you"re looking for. The pictures in this catalogue is a clear message of this.
We hope that you"ll enjoy this unconventional docu mentation - a true tribute to the beauty of random imperfection.
