Lukas/Markus by Kalle Sanner is the result of a photographic project spanning over a decade. Located in the Western Cemetery in Gothenburg, architect Sven Brolid’s two mirrored chapels Saint Lukas and Saint Markus were designed and built in the 1960s. A stark silhouette in the otherwise sparsely built-up cemetery, the building does little to blend in with its surroundings. However, there is harmony to be found in the fine tuned corre-spondence between the materials and in the considered, geometrical features giving the building its characteristic appearance. For more than 12 years, Sanner has kept returning to the building with his large format camera. The result is a sensitive portrait of the building and its surroundings, but also of the passing of time as the seasons shift in front of Sanner’s lense. The book is also available a special edition of 30 copies.
Kalle Sanner (b. 1978) lives and works as a photographer in Gothenburg, Sweden. In addition to self-initiated projects, Sanner works on commissions for cultural institutions, design studios and architectural firms.
The book designed by Sweden based design studio Lundgren+Lindqvist.
