Mitt liv / My life

hemma i biblioteket 2015I am researching a particular life — my own life, from when I was very young (the b&w photo above) until now (to the right).

As an autobiographer I am both subject and object. I am the present conscious mind (subject) behind the study, as well as the focus of attention (subject), but I am also the object of the study, in the sense that I am reconstructing — from archival material and memories — a subject from the past, whom I have every reason to believe I am identical with.
