Co-published by VU, centre de diffusion et de production de la photographie (Quebec City) and B-B-B-Books (Stockholm), Village is Swedish artists Klara Källström and Thobias Fäldt's look at the ambiguous links between Quebec, Canadian, and First Nations cultures.

The book presents a series of photographs taken along the artists' multiple peregrinations in Quebec and Ontario, from Gaspé to Toronto, by way of Chicoutimi and Quebec City, as Källström and Fäldt approach the different cultural, linguistic and political realities of these places with humour and criticality.

The lyrics to Richard Desjardins's song "Who Remembers?" and a poem by Innu writer Natasha Kanapé Fontaine accompany the images, while an essay by artist and writer Alexis Desgagnés questions the cultural gaps that have existed ever since the arrival of Europeans on the American continent.

The artists

Klara Källström and Thobias Fäldt are Swedish photographers who live in Stockholm. Founders of the publishing house B-B-B-Books, they see the book as a medium for the diffusion of photographic series that approach different historical and political issues. In 2013, during a three-month residency at the Studio d'artiste international de la coopérative Méduse, they finished A Beach, their series on the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, finalized the production of their publication Gottsunda, and began the series Village.
