With this cookbook we wanted to get a crazy feeling of party. A party with no responsibilities, no worrying just happiness and good food, good drinks and happy people! I can promise you that this is a book filled with great recipes. The food is good, interesting but still easy to make as always with Liselottes food. Making and eating this food will make you happy!
With the props we wanted the same crazy no worrying feel. So we collected a pile of shiny, patterned, monochrome, well pressed, wrinkled, colorful, white, black fabrics. With this we got some old darkened silverware at inexpensive thrift shops. We already have lots of props in our studio so we used some of that too. For backgrounds/backdrops we got different rock materials, metal, copper. But we decided from the beginning not to use any wood at all since we have used so much old wood lately we needed a break from it. No wood was our only regulation otherwise we wanted no rules for the props as well. But we still love old scratched, worn wood…
Jonas Larsson made the great design and Kakao Förlag is the publisher.
To get the book: go to a real life bookstore (in Sweden) or online to Bokus or Adlibris.
I entered this image into the Pink Lady Food Photographer of the Year 2014, in the category Food off the Press. It made it to be a finalist with six other images in the same category. The image was also included in a exhibition at the Mall Galleries in London in the end of April. Unfortunately I could’t be there for the exhibition.
Food stylist/creator Ylva Porsklev made the doughnut for the photo and it was originally published in the Swedish food magazine Mat & Vänner and it is now for sale through Stockfood. I’m looking forward to working with Ylva again after the summer. She has been away almost a year working on another assignment, but after the summer she is finally back! Next year I want to win this competion of course!
Se more images from the feature published in Mat & Vänner here.
This book is the latest to be published of the ones I shot last year. There are still two to come and another one I’m working on right now. On this book I worked with the two sisters Ebba von Sydow and Amy von Sydow Green. On the team was also Katja Palmdahl, Liselotte Forslin, Lisa Kullberg and of course our publisher Ingela Holm of Ica bokförlag. We got to go to many different wonderful locations in Stockholm to shoot this book during a few beautiful days in june last year. We also had a few days in Gothenburg at Stora Holms säteri in august to finish up the book. A good thing with making this book was that we were staying in a hotel during the photoshoot. I wish that happend more often while working on a big project like this it’s so much easier to get lots of work done. Making books is a lot of work, mostly fun, but still lots.

This was published already in September in the Swedish food magazine Lantliv mat & vin. I worked together with Liselotte Forslin and we were not in our studio instead we worked in a beautiful kitchen in a beautiful home in Uppsala, Sweden. Working in another space than our studio gives us inspiration. Even though you can’t always se the location in the images we believe it makes the photos better (if it’s a good location). It can be a slightly different natural daylight from the studio, a chair, a wall that looks really good in the background, props from the kitchen we are working in. Small things that inspire me and the stylist and make the food look even tastier.
I’m happy to let you know I have finally chosen two photographs to make posters from and I have already printed them. These are the first two poster but more will come. These first ones are both from Paris and printed on matte paper (my favorite) in the large size of 70 x 100 cm ( 27 1/2 x 39 1/4 “). The good thing with these posters, apart from the photo and being big, is that they are not very expensive so you can easily just pin or tape them on the wall. Or if you want to frame them there are many ready made frames in this size to frame them with. You can get them in my etsy shop. And I ship world wide.

My favorite secret location. No styling, this is the way I found this secret green house. I’ve shot three food features here, one with everything covered in snow.
I was very happy when I got the assignment, for Elle mat & vin, to shoot Lotta Kühlhorn while she cooks in her colorful and inspiring apartment in Stockholm. Lotta is a well known Swedish graphic designer who always uses a lot of color in her designs. I love color so this was the perfect assignment for me. Lotta’s home is filled with wonderful things that turned into wonderful props for the images I was shooting. This feature is in the latest issue of the Swedish magazine Elle mat & vin (Swedish for Elle food & wine). Here are some of the images I shot. And by my side doing some styling and writing was Liselotte Forslin.
