Stockholm. Photographs by Pieter ten Hoopen. Nygren & Nygren, Stockholm, 2010. Images from Pieter ten Hoopen's site.

The book 'Stockholm' features work by photographer Pieter ten Hoopen and was published to accompany the exhibition of the same name.

The series of photographs is "an investigation and a narrative about loneliness within the urban environment.

The series was photographed from 2008–2010, and is divided into public and private spaces. We encounter figures in unidentifiable rooms, as well as on buses and in the underground.

ten Hoopen unreservedly acknowledges that the series is subjective, and in many ways, autobiographical, reflecting his own experiences as a foreigner trying to connect in an unknown city."

The exhitibion 'Stockholm' with work by Pieter ten Hoopen is on at Fotografiska (the center for contemporary photography, Stockholm) until November 28.
