'I was ten years old in 1979 when I moved with my parents from the Swedish countryside of Värmland County, Sweden to Paris. It was my first time in a major international city. We returned to Värmland two years later. But ever since then Paris has been a second home, and I have visited and lived there off and on. These photographs were taken between 1991 and 2012'

Sketch of Paris, however, is hardly a catalog of classic Parisian scenes, offering instead a raw yet lyrical portrayal of the artist’s misadventures, loves, and random encounters in its streets, bars, and artist lofts—an entirely personal Paris.
