JH Engström

The JH Engström image I have chosen is one from his series of images titled “Haunts“.

JH Engström - Haunts 2

(JH Engström, no date)

This series contains a variety of images some overtly sexual and I found it hard to determine the narrative. I started to comprehend some kind of link to memories, fantasies, places been and shared experiences. I was drawn to this particular image as its faded appearance suggested the past. A nondescript estate of flats that be anywhere in the world. The bottom half of the images scrubby muddiness suggested transit and much use. While the objects in the centre first appear to be a play area, but on closer examination seem unrelated and out of place.
