'Skrivet i vatten'/'Written in water.'
Here he recounts a story from the Nineteenth century, and lets us accompany him on modern-day fishing vessel Norrland staffed with men from Bohuslän peninsula. The work - and rare free time - is depicted in many beautiful black & white photographs.
This book was published 1986, and the recorded ocean fishing trip was conducted in 1975.For interested parties I will translate the finishing note in the book:
The photographic equipment used was a Leica M2 and Leicaflex cameras and the underwater camera Nikonos. In winds of five Beaufort and above ordinary cameras were not possible to use on deck. The movements of the vessel in high seas necessitated as fast shutter times as possible, hence I had to push the film in development, even when having exposed in daylight conditions.
