Mats Bjurbom is a writer, photographer and filmmaker. He is an experienced world traveller and observer, with a keen, inquiring mind.
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 are interested in international rights, please contact mats@katarsis.se

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.
