JH Engström: Sketch of Paris (Video)

On Wednesday, November 6, Aperture Foundation and the Consulate General of Sweden hosted a conversation with Swedish photographer JH Engström in honor of his first U.S. publication, Sketch of Paris (Aperture, 2013). Engström has lived and worked in Paris for over twenty years, and this body of work presents a gritty, no-holds-barred, guided tour of life in his adopted city. Engström leads us to read the photographs included in this volume as a type of homage to a city that has greatly influenced and inspired him as a photographer and as a person.

Sketch of Paris, photographs by JH Engström, and the Trying to Dance Portfolio, (2004) are now available.
