A new restaurant, The Bellevue, opened in Chicago this spring and eleven of my fruit/berry/vegetable still-lives hang in this restaurant. I’m very proud to have so many of my images in this place. A place very far away from where I am, which is Sweden, so I have only yet seen photos of it. Here are all the images that were hand picked by the interior designer. They go so well together. I love seeing what other people do with my work, as long as they do something good of course but that is usually the case. Many of the images are printed in very big sizes which works with most of my work. I love that too! You can see some of them in these photos on the restaurants instagram here and also here.
If you would like to decorate your walls in the kitchen, maybe the dining room at home with food inspiration these images are all in my webshop.
The rainy days. A series of photographs taken at the flower market at Torvehallerne in Copenhagen. The flowers are seen through the see-through cover which is full of raindrops. This was not a planned, arranged photoshoot. I was lucky to have brought my good kamera when I saw the possibility of these images. And as I usually do I edit them in photoshop for the exact feeling I want. I tried them as light, pastel versions first but then realised I needed to go dark and with color on these images. And here they are, available in my print shop at Etsy. Link:https://www.etsy.com/se-en/shop/UlrikaEkblomPhoto
I’ve decided to offer some of my images in limited editions only. These will be in one or two different sizes depending on the image. I will sign and number each print and if delivered within Sweden I can also have them framed.
First out is this series of three. They go well together but work also very well on their own, so no need to buy all three if you only want one or two. This print is giclée printed on Hahnemühle photo rag paper 308 g. It is an acid free cotton paper.
The images are taken in houses from the seventies with the feeling of traveling back in time. It is also the feeling of being in control of time. This is one of many possibilities with photography the idea of being able to hold on to time, not having to let it slip away like in real life. The images also have a depth to them. Seeing through rooms and doorways, wanting to know what is on the other side, but needing to leave that to the viewers imagination.
I am also very much drawn to the colors. In these images pink, brown and yellow. I have worked in the editing with the colors and the light to convey the exact feeling of timelessness.
I spend a lot of time in Copenhagen. It is one of my favourite places to be and I am lucky to have close family there whom I visit often. In Copenhagen I love taking walks around town and I make sure to take at least one of the walks each visit on my own. This so I can take the time I need to take the photos I want without anyone hurrying me along. It has resulted in quiet many photographs. I thought it was time to go through them and edit some for my printshop. I did this and here are some of the new Copenhagen images in my print shop. Many of them are from Nyhavn, but some also from Christianshavn and other places in the inner city (Indre By).
So go take a look in my web print shop at Etsy to se more of my Copenhagen photography art prints.
New images in my printshop. A perfect vegetable garden in the Italian alps. I took the photo on a trip to Courmayeur, Italy on a warm evening this summer. The garden had just been watered and the sun was about to set.
These tomatoes are from my own garden in Sweden. I took and arranged these images when it was time to save the tomatoes from frost in oktober.
Den här boken har varit fanatiskt att göra. Alla bakverk Viktoriia skapat som är underbara allihop och så är dom så fotogeniska också. Sen har Josefin stylat på ett alldeles inspirerande vis. Det har varit ett utvecklade och kreativt samarbete med dessa två konstnärer. Sen har vi också haft turen att få jobba med förläggaren Hanna på Polaris. Så duktig och så peppande och positiv genom hela processen.
Väldigt nära där jag bor finns en gammal smedja. Ett litet falurött hus intill Mälarens mest norra vik i Vårdsätra i södra Uppsala. Smedjan har två rum, i ett av rummen finns kiosken och i det andra rummet hänger just nu några av mina fotografier. Mina grannar som äger den gamla smedjan frågade mig om jag ville visa några av mina bilder i smedjan under sommaren. Det vill jag och nu sitter fyra bilder på de vackra, träfärgade, timrade väggarna att beskåda för alla som vill.
This image is at the moment on display at Hotel Skeppsholmen in Stockholm. Hanging there together with other images made by other artists from my photography agency Söderberg agentur. I took this image in an empty house. A house in-between families. In the editing I have worked with the light and colours to get the feeling of in-between. The emptiness of something being gone but also the excitement for new happenings.
