I felt like I was circling around someone else’s wondrous, magical dream, viewing from the outside a series of well-shaped, interlocking private worlds where intruders are neither welcomed nor barred.”
—Allen Wheatcroft, Björkevägen (Birch Road)

While Wheatcroft has lived for 15 years on Chicago’s northside in the city’s historic Swedish neighborhood, during the pandemic he began spending summers in rural Sweden, in a small village along the Baltic Sea in eastern Sörmland. The colors bloom throughout the images he made there, and the tranquil and peaceful character he finds in the place is made apparent through the human-made structures and natural world he photographed. 

Wheatcroft says, "The images in Björkevägenreflect a tension I feel in the real and imagined space between belonging and being an outsider, between trying to enter a place and finding it, or myself, recalcitrant, seeing a world apart even as I approach it."
