Swedish born photographer Anders Petersen has been snapping the underbelly of Stockholm and beyond for nigh on 40 years. Born in 1944 and responsible for what is considered to be one of the seminal photobooks in the history of European photography, Café Lehmitz (published in 1978), Peterson's pre-occupation with the grittier side of '60s/'70s Swedish life (think prostitutes, drug addicts, drunks, homeless) has taken him into mental asylums, prisons and homes for old people. His signature documentary style black & white photography is often excruciatingly personal, with his lens pointing at the darker shades of society we would never normally be privvy to.
