Christer Strömholm’s masterpiece Poste Restante opens with a text by Tor-Ivan Odulf  based on an interview held in Paris in 1967. It is followed by a 100-page picture section of brilliantly combined double pages. Strömholm succeeds in creating new layers by combining these double spreads. Each double page takes you to a new room where the viewer is stimulated by the artist to project their own story. Strömholm’s images are dark to the point of being practically uncomfortable, and this is exactly what makes his work so fascinating. Very few photobooks stand the test of time. This is certainly one of them.

An English version of this book was published by Art And Theory Publishing and
a French version by The Eyes Publishing 2016.
