Big Size Poster SALE

Big Size Paris Posters on SALE

I’ve printed very many posters and since I’m right now adding more images to my shop I need to make space in my studio for new work. The posters are offset printed on 120 g matte paper in the size of 27 1/2 x 39 1/4 ” ( 70 x 100 cm). The lightness of the paper make them perfect for folding.

I love the way the folds add texture and a 3D feel to the poster. The folds catch and change with the light in a room. You can easily pin or tape the poster to the wall or frame it or use clips or glue it or any other way.

Folding the posters also make them easier to handle, the shipping cost less and perfect for a SALE.

Cookbook with Ernst Kirchsteiger

I spend a big portion of my working time making cookbooks, which I love. Here is yet another one that was recently published. I’ve been working on this one for the last year. It’s with the, in Sweden, very popular Ernst Kirchsteiger. On the team was also Linda Berlin, prop stylist and Kristina Valentin, recipe tester and cook. The book is published by Bonnier Fakta. I mostly enjoyed shooting this book on location. Spending a few days in a part of Sweden where I ever hardly go, Värmland. By dark lakes, and blue forests in an old spooky mansion. A little scary but with beautiful places to shoot. Here are a few of my favorite images.

Raw Fika – a raw food cookbook filled with sweets

When making this book I worked with the lovely Maria Carlsson and equally lovely Marina Asplund from the raw food café SthlmRaw in Stockholm. We shot all images at and around the café in central Stockholm. We used the city’s pavements, streets, walls, doors and I enjoyed it so much. I love shooting outside the studio, working with what I have around me.

Proud to be a part of this new cookbook: Till Bords med Systrarna Eisenman.

Yesterday I finally received my first copy of the Swedish cookbook Till Bords med Systrarna Eisenman by Lisa Eisenman Frisk and Monica Eisenman. I took the photos. I started working on the book about a year ago and finally it’s here. It’s about gathering family and friends around the table, being and eating together. It covers both winter and summer so we have shot a lot outside for the summer and a little bit for the winter when we were lucky to have snow. I especially enjoyed taking all the photos of people for this book and of course working with Monica and Lisa again.

A few photographs from my trip to New York.

In December I went to the United States on vacation with my family, we began in New York. I wasn’t on an assignment, but of course I couldn’t keep from bringing my camera everywhere we went. I have lots and lots of shots of buildings and streets. At first I wasn’t sure what to do with all the images I brought with me back home, but then I decided to make prints out of some of them. These prints are now for sale in my etsyshop: www.etsy.com/se-en/shop/UlrikaEkblomPhoto

I will soon also have prints from Italy, Miami and Charleston in my etsyshop…and hopefully lots of other places in the future.

New work in the Swedish food magazine Lantliv mat och vin.

In the latest issue of the Swedish food magazine Lantliv mat och vin I have no more than three stories. All with food stylist Liselotte Forslin, absolutely one of the best food stylists. One story is about new ways of preparing and eating porridge, with lots of different grains and lovely things to go with it. Another story is about making your own pasta and the good sauces to go with it.

The last story is a winter story. You would think we always have snow in Sweden, but we don’t get snow every year. Last year was one of those years with almost no snow. But we were asked by the magazine to make this feature with food and people with a wintery feeling and of course preferably some images in the snow. We had planned a day for shooting the story without snow and asked Matilda (she is part of our creative studio and is a wonderful children’s book illustrator) if we could shoot the story with her family at her parents house which we could. Thank you!! Well, we had planned the shoot without the snow and we were going to make the best of it. But just after arriving at the location the snow started falling, we were just so lucky! Next day the snow was gone. So we got the snowy shots together with the cosy inside shots.

Here are some of the photos from the three different stories, but from the same issue of the magazine Lantliv mat och vin.
