New book – Passage
Keeping aloof from major events, royalty, and celebrities, Roger Turesson turns his camera onto everyday life. Most of all, his heart is with the common people — in his own neighbourhood as well as in the world’s most sealed in countries as North Korea. With great empathy and respect, he shows people struggling to survive in arduous times, times torn by war and terror, seeking passage to a better life. His new book is full to the brim with such gut-wrenchingly beautiful moments.
