Food Pharmacy kokboken

One year ago the first Food Pharmacy book was published. It turned out to be very popular and has been translated into 10 different languages, which means it’s available in even more countries. So we made another one called Food Pharmacy Kokboken (the cookbook). This book is about even more recipes for good intestinal flora, good bacteria and anti-inflammatory food. Great team with Mia Clase, Lina Nertby Aurell, Anna Lindelöw, Therese Elgquist and Linnéa von Zweigbergk and Cecilia Viklund from Bonnier Fakta.

new work in many different magazines – first out Swedish Crayfish Feast for Lantliv

It has been an unusually long summer and unusually many lazy days (probably too many) for me and my family. Three weeks in Italy, a few weeks on the Swedish island of Gotland and a few weeks of not doing anything at home. Today is the first day of school after summer for my children. So I start working again. I have lots of fun projects and assignments for the end of summer and beginning of autumn. But first I want to show you some of my work that has been published over the summer. The first one is for the Swedish magazine Lantliv. Helena Larsson was the recipe developer and stylist. The story was shot close to her home a very lovely evening last summer in Småland in the southern part of Sweden.

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.
