Klara Källström – Blackdrop Island (signed)
Self published – 2009
The photographs in Klara Källström’s second book Blackdrop Island were taken during a stay in Tokyo in 2008 and a revisit in 2010. Documenting things at night, when the darkness creates black backdrops and only allows the viewer to see a bit of the scenery, occupies Källström’s interest in this work. Inherent in the documentarist’s practice, the indexical aspects of the photograph here becomes the question at stake.
