Photographers whose work I like - No19/ Douglas Ljungkvist

Originally hailing from Sweden, Douglas Ljungkvist is a Brooklyn NY based photographer. Many of his personal projects explore vernacular beauty with subtexts of time, identity, and memory. His work process is intuitive and he describes his photographic voice as urban, colorful, graphic, and quiet.

Since 2009 Ljungkvist has been working on a study of the 1940's New Jersey beach resort, Ocean Beach. His focus is on the architectural landscape and cottage interiors.
Ljungkvist's surprisingly simple Ocean Beach photographs are in fact complex, layered with metaphor and meaning. They are well worth a look. Some are posted below. To see more you can go to his website HERE.
