Adolf’s house on film, Part I

August 24, 2010

What a relief I never made it to start posting Adolf’s house on film on my old blog. I’ll show you most of the photos I shot with my old Pentax MX when I was there a couple of weeks ago.

Background: Adolf is my grandfather’s younger brother and until 1990 he lived in the house where he and his siblings grew up. He’s still alive and lives in an apartment twenty minutes car ride from the house. The house is falling apart and no one is able to take care of it. I’ve been there a few times the last four years to take pictures of the house, you can see them here.

    Det är så fint, och sorgligt samtidigt, den där känslan att Adolf bara lämnat de diskade glasen på diskbänken och kvasten vid dörren och gått ut en stund… och sen har det gått tjugo år, fast tiden stått stilla.

    I love that shot of the dining table with the four chairs. It's giving a voice to my melancholy, one I have been feeling lately but haven't been able to express. Thank you for that.
