Sweden’s most acclaimed photographers have come together to set the record straight and show what really happened ‘last night in Sweden’ in a visionary new photo-book and exhibition. Many ‘alternative facts’ about Sweden have been shared recently, most notably when, in February 2017, Donald Trump provocatively referred to ‘what happened last night in Sweden’ – falsely alluding to an incident of terror. Some of the opinions discussed about the Scandinavian country are fuelled by ignorance or serve a hidden agenda, and come from people who have never been to the country itself. While at the same time, social unrest and terrorism do, of course, exist.
"The pictures do not depict a paradise or a perfect society, but they are a response to the politicised image of Sweden as a country in crisis." - Henrik Berggren
