From the publisher: "I Love Borås is Lars Tunbjörk's document of an aimless journey around Sweden between 1988 and 1995 [Borås is a province and city in the country's southwestern region], depicting supermarkets, parties, small town streets, amusement parks, gas stations, TV-shows, landscapes, food. During that time Tunbjörk was working on his series Landet utom sig / Country Beside Itself, but these images were not used in that series because they didn't fit, they were too ugly, too beautiful or too silly. Together they show a darker and more hysteric view of modern western society and Sweden during the economic recession of the early nineties."
