This title is offered as a special-order item. Publisher's description: Born in 1938 to a powerful Swedish aristocratic family, Carl Johan De Geer grew up on a grand country estate, went to art school in the late 1950s and, in an epic act of rejection, became an underground artist, musician, author, filmmaker and photographer documenting Sweden's 1960s-80s leftist bohemia. (He also exposed his grandmother's Nazi sympathies in a film called Mormor, Hitler och jag (Grandmother, Hitler and I). A master of the Leica M4 snapshot in the vein of Ed van der Elsken and Daido Moriyama, De Geer captures the world with intimate informality, in black-and-white photographs that, in this slim, affordable volume (most of De Geer's previous photo books are out of print and extremely rare), are beautifully reproduced on heavy-weight newsprint, in an informal zine style.
