Fine (SIGNED by Johansson)
Gerry Johansson's sensitive and subtle photographs hint at human life through the occasional car or lone figure but for the most part they draw the reader’s eye to the simplistic architecture of a small American town. In singling out Pontiac, Johansson offers comment on more than the landscape, photographing a microcosm of the effects of the decline in the auto industry in Michigan. His images survey the landscape with a characteristic Swedish melancholy, echoing the new topographic photographers of the 1970s.
