"Gianluca La Bruna's photographs capture this peculiar contrast between dream and desperation. His pictures make me feel an anarchistic desire to look ahead, get dressed to kill, intoxicated and to let life be lived. The pictures summarize an era that believes in creative solutions and different lifestyles, still on the fringe of society but without the destructive will to remain there on the margins. In short, Malmö."
Extract from the foreword.
