Kalle Sanner: Lukas/Markus
Lukas/Markus is the result of a photographic project spanning over a decade. Located in the Western Cemetery in Gothenburg, architect Sven Brolid’s two mirrored chapels Saint Lukas and Saint Markus were designed and built in the 1960's, the era when Swedish functionalism was at its very peak.
The clothbound hardcover features an embossing with partial, transparent foil, echoing the iconic facade of Brolid’s building. The book includes two double foldouts, and while the head-band and endpaper is matched to the chapel’s interior textile details, the cloth used for the cover and the sand coloured text segment both correspond with the buildings facade. The crematoriums oxidized copper chimney guided the selection of the turquoise silk bookmark.
The book was designed by Lundgren+Lindqvist in close collaboration with the photographer and released at Hasselblad Center in Gothenburg, during the finissage of the Hasselblad Foundation's 'Published', a major exhibition on the history of the Swedish photobook.
