Periscope is a book of twenty photographic collages by photographer Vendela Grundell. A slow piecing together of images taken most impulsively, with a cell phone through a broken window on an express train to Arlanda Airport outside Stockholm. Moving through a shattered landscape illuminated by cracks in the glass, instigated thoughts of how the eye is connected to what it sees. The everyday flow of field and tree, sky and sun, transposed to an innerscape. The idea of the periscope is to organize your vision so that you may know what you see and where you are going. At the same time, that decision is yours to make. This periscope is a tool for disorientation, for looking into your own vision and end up in a very different place.
The Periscope portfolio is available in book form, as individual prints and as a film. Contact the photographer at vgrundell (at) gmail (dot) com to get one or to simply say hello.
