Sundsvall is a city up north from Stockholm, in Sweden. The easiest way to get there is with the SJ train. Even though the city situated north from Stockholm, overall it is in the middle of Sweden.

The population of the city is over 50 000 people. Though we could say it is a big city, it may seem many times rather as a ghost town. The life could go really slowly here. The locals are a great mixture of people from different areas of the world. Many international university students live here alongs with local Swedish and immigrant people from different countries. 

One interesting phenomena of Sweden is that they state there isn't such a thing as someone is 'homeless'. The people who we may see on the streets they choose to be there. They are either drug addicts or someone addicted to alcoholism.

For me, being a photographer, it was important to know the background behind the surface of these people. Not just assuming the stereotypes, which people usually tend to attach to them. Their story varies, and it is much more complex, then we would think.
