De ce photographe suédois, nous connaissions le livre culte Café Lehmitz, paru en 1978, chronique d'un café populaire de Hambourg dans la fin des années 1960, un travail magistral d'empathie avec le genre humain.
City Diary est un livre qui se présente en 3 cahiers de 64 pages un peu à la manière de fanzines et de livres auto-édités avec ce côté « en vrac » et qui retrace les voyages et séjours de Petersen dans différentes villes d'Europe au cours de ces dix dernières années. Les trois fascicules sont présentés dans une enveloppe grise.

The exhibition reveals each artist’s distinctive process and aesthetic, demonstrating how a simple prompt can inspire renewed engagement with the medium.
