Lidos were perhaps at their most popular between the wars when people took their holidays here in England. Many of them were built in the 1930s or earlier and were naturally located on the English south coast, which was a favoured holiday destination for those living in London and the home counties. However there were many that were built in towns and cities to cope with the demand that once was and many of these remain. However, when the affordability of overseas holidays started to emerge in the 1960s many of these lidos fell into decline and have never recovered. Some have survived and have benefitted from investment and so have taken on a new lease of life as popularity has started increasing again. Most have been left to decay or lost under modern developments, such as Ramsgate's once booming pool which is now under a car park. The ones remaining are desperately clinging on while campaigns are fought to save them from disappearing completely, relics of a lost golden age.

Savar, Dhaka - Bangladesh (April 2014) One year after the RanaPlaza tragedy still hundreds of people suffer from invisible, intangibles wounds. Trauma is a normal response to a disaster like this, but still too many people suffer panic attacks or memory losses, hear continuously mourning voices imploring help or even see dead workers laying beside them. Although I'm still alive, Rana Plaza changed the course of my life - says a survivor. His conditions are common to hundreds of victims and their relatives, who are still unable to recover physically and, especially, psychologically from the trauma.The tragedy and pain are far from over.

The project "Restricted area" is about utopian strive of humans for technological progress. Humans are always trying to own ever more than they have - this is the source of technical progress, which was the means to create various commodities, standards, as well as the tools of violence in order to keep the power over others. Better, higher, stronger - these ideals often express the main ideology of the governments, for these goals they are ready to sacrifice almost everything. I travel in search of places which used to have great importance for the technical progress - and which are now deserted. Those places lost their significance together with the utopian ideology which is now obsolete. Secret cities that cannot be found on maps, forgotten scientific triumphs, abandoned buildings of almost inhuman complexity. The perfect technocratic future that never came.

Ola Larsson, 41 years old, Purchaser. On leave with his son Gustav, for eight months. "It is important that everybody is free to choose to take time off for parental leave or not. It is the culture that needs to change on a grand scale and more male role models must be promoted. The State needs to become better at providing information regarding the advantages that parental leave gives both parents. I had to dry many tears after I left my son in day care for the first time. It is a true gift to be allowed to create such strong emotional ties to your child that you can thanks to the Swedish parental leave system. You almost have to experience parental leave to understand what you lose before you decide to work instead.".
