"In various different projects he has photographed the imprisoned of this world. And in the universe of Anders Petersen imprisonment in life has many shapes and forms. There are regular inmates in prisons, but there are also the patients of institutions. While the most rudimentary imprisonment of all is self-imprisonment. Locked inside one's body. Filled with fear for the life one never attains. Photographing such states requires something special. Sober-minded impressions become more important than concrete phenomena, and the pictorial universe of Anders Petersen is at once quiet intimation and powerful language, with human instincts supplying a reverberating undertone."  - Ingrid Fischer Jonge

Close Distance is a catalog to Anders Petersen's exhibition in the National Photomuseum in the Royal Library in Copenhagen. Preface by Ingrid Fischer Jonge. Introduction is by photographic historian, licentiate Birna Marianne Kleivan, who provide an introduction full of insight into the artistic universe of Anders Petersen

"If you want to find out who you are you have to seek out situations alien to all that which has so far been experienced as normal. You have to go way down, and in degradation there is a lack of pressure that can feel liberating" - Anders Petersen
