The photo book LIKE BIRDS by photographer Sven Jacobsen (appearing at Hatje Cantz Publishing) is now available as a special offer on the photographer’s website.
In his book, Sven Jacobsen takes us back to a carefree time of youth, becoming self-aware, coming of age in a summer full of adventure. Its about lightness, an easygoing time of absolute, unlimited freedom. In their immediacy, a timeless dimension develops in his photographs of youngsters trying things out, jumping into the water with exuberance, clambering around on fences, poles and dunes, being silly, kissing, skateboarding or simply lying in the tall grass. The lakes, dunes, or apartments depicted thus become places of collective memory.
“If we observe living things long enough, we can see the entire beauty and tragedy of the world in them…” Sven Jacobsen
The spherical landscapes captured in this way – the snapshots of youthful freedom in all its beauty, its chaos, its silence, and its loudness – quickly develop a narrative pull. What looks like a lighthearted summer snapshot on the surface may suddenly touch deeper layers of the subconscious.
Sven Jacobsen (*1969) began working as a freelance photographer in 1999 after studying Architecture. He is known for his campaigns for big clients such as BMW, Nikon, and Coca-Cola as well as for his editorials for magazines such as Rolling Stone, Vanity Fair, and Interview.
