The first book from one of Sweden’s leading artists.

If you are interested in art, you are probably familiar with Lotta Antonsson. As one of the leading young photographers during the early 90´s, she brought Swedish photography onto the contemporary art scene. This is her first book, and the first book designed by Aoki. 


I am a Woman brings together a representative selection of the artist’s work from 2008–2016, and it also functions as an introduction to ongoing projects. The book reflects her variety of expressions and focuses on the feminist perspectives that have been following her work throughout her career, such as the cultural expectations of women and the treatment of the female body as an object. Working with the design and editing of the book was an intimate process and collaboration with the artist. We focused on finding the rhythm and the flow in the narrative together, and letting the artwork have as much space as possible using images with full bleed and few or no graphic elements.


The book is published by Art & Theory.
Paper: Munken Kristall.
