About the book:

"Over the course of one year, the photographer has been documenting his life trying to find both the cause of his burnout and the road back to his familiar self."

In 2016, Alexander Sporre suffered from a case of severe burnout. Like many, he never expected it would ever happen to him, so, when the burnout happened, he didn’t know how to deal with it. He was struck with a perception of personal failure as compared to his direct surrounding.

Over the course of one year, the photographer has been documenting his life trying to find both the cause of his burnout and the road back to his familiar self. Along the way he realised that perhaps these feelings of failure were instrumental in revealing the essentially illusory nature of his old "self”.
