Gunnar Smoliansky worked exclusively in black and white and throughout his career, he has transformed his photographed motifs into completed photos in the darkroom. Stockholm is the main focus of Smoliansky’s photographic world, particularly the areas of Södermalm and Saltsjö-Boo. From a geographic point of view, the photographs of Gunnar Smoliansky are quite restricted in range. This has not, however, kept him from being regarded as a renowned photographer outside of Sweden.

The images in Gunnar Smoliansky Diary are a selection of the material Gunnar began to work with and to print methodically during the 1980s. Some of the material was also exhibited at the time – at Moderna, Lunds Konsthall, and galleries including Babar and Lido.

The book consists of 172 images – a major part of the images has not been published before.Gunnar Smoliansky Diary is edited by Gerry Johansson and Jäger Arén.
