First edition of Christer Stromholm’s important photobook of the late 1960s, Poste Restante, whose jarring photographs of blighted cityscapes and urban decay lay bear the discord, contradiction, and juxtapositions of urban life. The black and white compositons - here 100 full bleed pages of them - and Strömholm’s eye for the marginal, liminal thresholds of cities, exerted a lasting influence on Scandinavian photography and street photography world-wide.
