Poste Restante was the first photobook by legendary Swedish photographer Christer Strömholm. Published in 1967, the book included 96 images and a series of text fragments and anecdotes based on an interview with the photographer. Despite a rocky start with mixed reviews and bad sales, Poste Restante became one of the most collectible photography books from the mid-twentieth century.
This photographic autobiography details Strömholm's extensive travels across the globe in a book constructed as an existentialist diary. Juxtaposing the urbane and the macabre, combining portraiture and street scenes with abstract photographic fragments, the book uses metaphor and visual pun in an unrelenting stream of consciousness. (The Photobook: A History Volume I, Parr & Badger)
