JH Engström’s Trying To Dance series comprises a photojournalistic ‘diary’ of his life: landscapes, still-lives, self-portraits, and snapshots of friends become loosely narrative documents, recording not only the artist’s individual experiences, but a sensitive and provocative engagement with the world at large. Using photography’s ability to capture the fleeting essence of a moment, Engström transfers specific time and place to the unfixed reference of memory. Engström’s work was featured in Issue # 190 of Aperture Magazine, and first published in book form by the Swedish publisher Journal.
