Flygur’s photographic style is heavily influenced by German Romanticism, which is why SVØN begins with an excerpt from The Magic Mountain by Thomas Mann, of a character drifting through a dreamy landscape — that sets the tone for the rest of the book. The Russian collective first came together out their love for travel. SVØN is an enchanting journey across the Swiss mountains, through lakes and caves, fog and snow, “from day to night and back again“. No image is ever the same: stylised photographs are mixed together with simple nature shots, making it a truly immersive experience.
SVØN is available from Croatan Edition.
