Viktor Gårdsäter’s Graceful Photographs Of Life And Death

Viktor Gårdsäter lives and works in Stockholm, Sweden. He recently completed a series of photographs that examine the passing of time, fragility, and memories.  Composed as a fashion shoot, the underlying idea of life and death resonates in the graceful imagery of a calm and dignified protagonist. The artist explains, “Balloon man’s last walk” is a fashion story about an elderly man’s last day alive. We get to follow this man on his nostalgic journey through significant places and memories of his life, in a last walk and a farewell to his city. He is dressed up and in his hand he holds the balloon. The balloon works as a metaphor for death and in the end takes him to the sky.” (via)
