Mikael Olsson is a photographer who has spent a decade visiting and revisiting two abandoned homes designed by acclaimed architect Bruno Mathsson to observe, shoot photos, and even live. The two houses, built in the early 1960's, have been empty for some time and are slowly falling into disrepair.
Olsson's efforts are designed not only to capture some sense of what these iconic homes were like before the neglect took hold, but also to leave some reminder of what was there in case somebody undertakes some overzealous renovations. Olsson's book, Södrakull Frösakull, is a form of visual archaeology, capturing not only Mathsson's architecture, but some fleeting reminders of the original residents as well as the marks of his own occupancy over the past decade. Take a look at a few shots below!
