Peripheral vision is the ability to see things outside of your direct line of sight. To notice and pay attention to what isn’t necessarily most obvious is a gift that the photographers in this book share. They represent different views and approaches to a changing Sweden and shows a selection of contemporary photography that oscillates between the documentary and the poetic.

This book collects twenty Swedish photographic practices, most of which have emerged during the last decade. It is produced by the Center for Photography (CFF-Centrum för fotografi) in Sweden, with the ambition of deepening knowledge about Swedish photography and helping it to reach a wider audience in Sweden and abroad.
