Synopsis: Sweden on 3 June 2003 sees several culture clashes that almost buckle the pages, but there is also togetherness, gentleness and a little fussing with private things. There are tragedies, death, pain, alienation and desperation - but also love, devotion, intimacy and joy that at times transcend comprehension. Sweden - Mother Swea, as the Swedes say - is ancient and free, in the words of the national anthem and as the pictures convey, but she is reborn every midnight: a curious, wide-eyed infant ready to grapple with what we recognize as reality. It's hard not to be humble when you see this ant-hill of people and possibilities; that so much can be squeezed inside a nation's borders; inside 44,964 in thinly populated square kilometers! That life can be so big and wide! The third on June 2003 was the day 33 new Swedes were born. It was also the day 234 died, 22 married 68 divorced, 5290 were behind bars and 92 emigrated to parts unknown, while 187 moved in the other direction, signing on as new citizens of a little Nordic kingdom which, just before midnight, had population of exactly 8,953,111. And it was, not least the day when more than 3,000 photographers together took more pictures than any other day in Sweden's history.
