Foreward by Robert Adams:

What does the word "home" signify? Fortunately each of us know some of what it means even without owning land or a building. I know this to be true in part because, although my wife's family (THE LEIJONS) no longer own the farm (GRANGARDEN) in Öglunda where she spent summers as a child and where I visited in 1968, they and we continue to find refuge there in memory. Gerry Johansson's pictures are a kindness because they establish that while some aspects of Oglunda have changed, the community still has about it a quality of sanctuary. Partly this is owing to the graceful, enfolding contour of the land, something that is now even more apparent than it was before the clearing away of underbrush, and partly it is because so many grand old trees remain. Sweden has set a high standard for land use, a commitment I can only envy as an American. Öglunda would probably not survive in the United States, where it would likely be exposed to the full rapacity of laissez faire economics. As I study Gerry Johansson's respectful, deeply observant photographs it occurs to me that I may have picked wild raspberries next to a stone wall that I seem to recognize. How generous are the distant boundaries of home.
