    Images and media

    A thin streak of red light stretches across the cityscape. The last of the day will soon be engulfed by the blue dusk. Eugen Jansson managed to turn the city into a place where time was frozen. He wanted to create a world beyond the material realm, as a spiritual and meditative space for us to enter.
