JH Engström: Leica Oskar Barnack Award Winner 2015 from Leica Camera on Vimeo.

JH Engström is honored with the Leica Oskar Barnack Award 2015 for his photographic project titled Tout Va Bien. Born in Sweden, JH Engström’s prize includes a cash prize of 25,000 euros and a Leica M camera and lens. Tout Va Bien does not handle a concrete subject in the traditional sense. The Swedish photographer JH Engström intends his project to be seen much more as visual poetry – a photographic narrative with strong autobiographical elements. Despite this, it does not exclusively depict aspects of his own life. Tout Va Bien is a sequence of widely differing images. The winning series includes both portraits and landscapes, as well as bizarre snapshots like the photograph of the birth of his twins. The photographer also switches between exposures in black and white and colour. Engström plays with contrasts and leaves it to viewers to find their own ways of reading and interpreting each picture. The complete project comprises 90 images and will be published in book form by Aperture in July.
