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.
