Description of book: In this inaugural edition, by taking eight individual and uniquely passionate women with photographic eloquence, TjejLand presents a visual sensibility that goes beyond words. Containing something of the past and something of the moment, the feeling evoked when reading the material collected here is that of nostalgic paradoxically tinged with concrete presence. Rather then providing an element of disorientation or dislocation, which often accompany nostalgia, this set of visual narratives brings an acute sense of being, a sense of having become and of having come from somewhere pivotal. Perhaps this accounts for the photographer’s strength of clarity and vision. Like conflicting, disparate longings in adolescence coming together to produce a fine young woman, each narrative in this collection builds upon each other, urging the other on, creating dialogue with themselves and forging their own unpremeditated path. Like the woman in a ‘sewing circle’, the conversation strengthen and encourage each other. The belong to a greater whole.
