Ödman’s images ‘take the viewer on an extraordinary journey into the borderland between dream and reality.  The meeting point of logic, imagination and madness’.

Ödman will explore the future of industrial places and decode the processes that produce decline and growth – only by understanding these forces can we ask ourselves – how strong does our connection to place have to be to keep it alive?
