On the cover of »Back to Mama«, a pretty young woman dressed in 1950s style looks expectantly toward the future with a broad smile. How things turned out is revealed in the 129 pictures that follow, snapshots from the life of her son, photographer Sven Jacobsen.
»Back to Mama« is Jacobsen’s personal documentary describing the emotional divide between family life and loneliness, between animated and quiet love. At the same time, his images reflect how the universal striving for happiness is expressed in both the simplest and the most important things in life. »These images are warm and filled with emotion and brave the perfectionism of our time. They pay hommage to life and its lovableness«. (Sven Jacobsen)
