About the artist

Sven Jacobsen´s photography is distinguished by a strong harkening to simplicity and awareness. Unlike much work nowadays, Jacobsen’s work strives to capture a radical demand to preserve genuine truth. He searches for bliss in the simplest things and is keenly interested in the aesthetics of the moment. In his search, Jacobsen focuses on emotionality, lightness and authenticity. For him, the essence of things is the most important: going back to ones roots, home, embracing imperfections, and spreading warmth and truth. This is what he commonly portrays with his emotional and warm picture language.

About the book

During my multiple journeys as a photographer, I felt the strong wish to realize this book again and again. In this book, I show my personal gap between family and loneliness, between the love that is alive and the dormant kind, by mixing photos from my journeys with private family pictures. More generally, it shows a strong harkening back to the simple things in life, to more awareness. It is also a radical demand to preserve the love of genuine truth, of beauty and all things good. I try to find soul in a cold, over-engineered world and to freeze it in my pictures. I aim to locate bliss in the simple things, in the aesthetics of the moment, in order to render a mood visible, and I am mostly concerned with emotionality, lightness and authenticity. The title, "Back to Mama" can be understood in different ways; for me, it recalls back to one's roots, back home to real warmth and truth, finding peace of mind, moving away from too much perfection, and leaving the achievement-oriented lifestyle behind. Viewers can recognize this wish in the picture language of the book - the shots are all warm and emotional, defying too much perfection. They are something of an homage to a world that is at our fingertips and beckons daily, and to life and its loveliness.
