Europa is a photographic essay which chronicles the artist’s travels throughout the European continent during the years of 2015-2018. Thirty-eight atmospheric black-and-white photographs depict landscapes, seas and cities.Places accompanied with its abandoned objects, creatures, human and historical traces. The continent is perceived as one holistic land mass, unaffected by national borders and common dogmatisms. Looking beyond the current political climate, the book offers a way to reacquaint with the beautifully diverse and mystical Europe.

Bjørn-Henrik Lybeck has been working with photography for more than a decade. His practice as a photographer is greatly influenced by the traditions of straight photography and of photojournalism from the forties, fifties and sixties. Employing a formal and non-staged style of photography, he carries the legacy into contemporary practice.
