With his pared-down, intellectual yet markedly sensual conceptualism, Dawid (Björn Dawidsson) was one of the first photographers to break with the prevailing documentary tradition in late 70s and 80s Sweden and claim photography as an artistic medium. Focusing on the formal properties of everyday objects in a simultaneous suspension, negation and affirmation of form, his images question our ingrained values and expectations, deconstructing the very foundation of photography from within. Experimentation is an important aspect of Dawid's work, including series of cameraless photography such as his Kemigrams. His decision to trade clarity for the porousness and labile mystery of things is not only an investigation of the depicted object but a foray into the very fabric of photography, making the medium itself the subject of Dawid’s work. This book covers over thirty of his seminal series, from the late 1970s to 2015.
