Bänken #5

Bänken (the Bench) is a poster magazine that believes all people have a story to tell.


A reporter and a photographer sit down on a bench with a mission to make an article about the first person that takes a seat next to them. One page tells the story of the central character. On the other page, artists and writers get to make their free interpretations of said person’s life.

The fifth issue of Bänken features Katja, 17. On a bench at Gullmarsplan she tells about peer pressure and assault, her dad’s expectations, a boy with a blue balloon and the bunny Elvis.
