Publisher's Description

Grusväg (gravel road) is not a book about gravel roads, except for tangentially.

It's about what is revealed during a walk, in our movement forward. It's about what is behind the horizon, which we can't foresee.

The idea for the book emerged during a daily walk along a gravel road with our family dog Frasse. It was in June 2019. Throughout the summer, we followed new road sections, mainly in Västergötland, but in the following years also in Bohuslän, Småland and Skåne. 

'I got the inspiration from some early photos taken with a borrowed Rolleiflex. Bright, light, and with a long grayscale. They were made in my first darkroom — in my grandmother's attic. The year must have been 1971. The magnifier was a Uniprint with a simple glass holder. The Leonar paper was soft as velvet and silver-rich.

'I've wanted to relive that feeling.' — Jan Töve
