Photography and the modern city are two intimately interwoven phenomena – the city’s ever-changing street life has exerted a strong attraction for many photographers and represents one of photography’s oldest genres. Swedish photographer Per L-B Nilsson’s first trip to Ireland took place in the mid-1960s and since then he has returned regularly with his camera. The majority of the photographs in this book were taken in Dublin in 1967, but Chicago/Ireland also includes images from Galway, Tralee, Tobercurry  and Derry in the ’70s and ’80s. The timeframe of the Chicago photographs is significantly narrower. They were made between 1981 and 1984 in conjunction with Per L-B Nilsson’s studies at the Chicago Institute of Design. The character of the places influenced the method of photography, and the style of the images. The grey light and rain give the Ireland pictures a completely different tone from those showing Chicago’s sharp light and hard contrasts.
