Hardcover, design by Patric Leo, text by Sven-Olov Wallenstein. Printrun 800 copies.

"In Pedan's picutures we meet a slice of urban life in places like Stockholm, Göteborg, Arles, Paris, Barcelona, Beijing, Istanbul, Kiev, London and New York. And sometimes the scenes are quietely intervened by a Jan Håfström character.

Misha Pedan’s Eternal Presence consisting of a series of eighty-two photographs, taken at various locations and mostly showing us everyday scenes from urban life, it appears to align itself with a documentary aesthetic and a discourse of photography as the art of extracting a crucial moment from the flow of time. The images are however infiltrated by another presence, that of a fellow artist, Jan Håfström, whose earlier work The Eternal Return is overlaid, subtly and sometimes almost imperceptibly, onto Pedan’s own. That Håfström’s series bears a similar—although from the perspective of the philosophical tradition significantly transformed—name as Pedan’s, seems to set up a particular resonance between them, two series crossing and intersecting, without merging into a third unity."
