His latest book is called "India in Five Perspectives",
about a Swedish family travelling in India. The trip is the fulfilment
of a dream for the parents, but the teenagers do not share their
enthusiasm. All five family members (mother, father, 16-, 14-, and
10-year old children) contribute with a diary, and the book also
includes more than 100 color photographs. It tells the story of
a family's experience with conflict, terrible food, travellers stomach,
and confronting a new culture.
Mats Bjurbom is aiming to publish this book in English, so if you

Other projects include documenting when the Falun Copper Mine in
Falun, Sweden, closed in 1992, Mats took pictures, and, eleven years
later, convened a meeting of some of the miners.
This work resulted in the TV documentary ”Portrait of Seven
Miners in Oil” that was broadcast on Swedish and Finnish television.
He also produced a book called ”The Last Miners”, and
presented a related photo exhibition of black and white prints at
the prestigious Museum of Work in Norrköping, Sweden, in 2005.
Mats Bjurbom is currently working on several photo projects. One
of these is about the Navajo Indian Reservation in the American
Southwest, where Mats travelled extensively in the 1980s. Some of
these pictures are shown under the headline ”Bilder”.
The project aims at reconnecting with some of the people in the
old pictures. Do you recognize anyone? If so, please get in touch.
