"I’m a kind of diary photographer. I try not to take pictures as I see them, but as I feel them. I’m interested in imperfection.” (Petersen)

"Since the 1960s P. has been documenting life beyond the margins of polite society, a world including prostitutes, transvestites, alcoholics, night-time lovers and adult conflict. The swedish artist photographs his subjects with a candid somewhat detached eye, and is able to disclose unpleasant realities such as drug abuse with a sense of bewilderment and currency. 'City Diary' is an ambitious series of books showing P.’s ongoing photographic engagement with life in the shadows in cities including Stockholm, Tokyo and St Petersburg. The first three volumes of 'City Diary' appear here together; the others will follow as and when they are ready – just as life unfolds around P. on his travels. Born in Stockholm in 1944, P. is one of the most important European photo-graphers working today. Throughout his career P. has consistently challenged photographic conventions, beginning with his photographs of late-night regulars in a Hamburg bar in the 1960s, which subsequently became the seminal book 'Café Lehmitz'. Between 1966 and 1968 Petersen studied with Christer Strömholm, and has since published more than 20 books." (publisher)

'City Diary' wurde das Projekt genannt, wo Anders PETERSEN die nicht so öffentlichen Seiten städtischen Lebens zeigt, so z.B. in Stockholm, Tokyo und St Petersburg.

Der 1944 in Stockholm geborene Künstler zählt heute zu den bedeutendsten europäischen Fotografen. Während seine langen Karriere - er studierte von 1966 bis 1968 zusammen mit Christer STRÖMHOLM und hat inzwischen mehr als 20 Fotobücher veröffentlicht - sprengte PETERSEN stets die Konventionen.

Spätestens seit der 1985 sogar als Fischer-Taschenbuch veröffentlichten 70er-Jahre-Foto-Dokumentation über das legendäre 'Café Lehmitz' auf der Reeperbahn von St.Pauli ist er auch in Deutschland ein Begriff.
