Dandelion seeds and other seeds and prints.

(Scroll for Swedish)

If the seeds are picked carefully and protected from the weather and kept in an absolutely still box the seeds can keep their shape as a ball for very long. I don’t know how long they can still grow, but they are possible to photograph all through winter and probably even longer. Early in the summer (applies to southern part of Sweden) the dandelions bloom in large, happy yellow fields, a good time for the dandelion. After this the flower changes into a ball of seeds and it’s time to pick them to keep for the winter. Later in the summer they will be harder to find, even though one or two dandelions might bloom later. This past summer I also picked the beige coloured spotted cat’s ear and the bigger meadow salsify. Seed balls are so fragile, but actually full of growth and life. After I’ve photographed I give them back to nature.

These two images can be found in my art print shop.

Om fröbollarna plockas försiktigt, försiktigt och skyddas från vind och vatten och förvaras i en ask som hålls helt stilla så kan fröbollarna förbli bollar väldigt länge. Jag vet inte om fröna fortfarande kan gro, men de går att fotografera under hösten och vintern och säkert under ännu längre tid. Tidigt på sommaren blommar maskrosorna i vackra gula fält, en fin tid för maskrosen. Sen kommer fröbollarna och det är dags att plocka några för vinterförvaring. Senare på sommaren är det svårare att hitta, även om enstaka maskrosor blommar senare. I somras tog jag försiktigt in också slåtterfibbla (de små beiga) och ängshavrerot (den stora). Bollarna är så sköra, men egentligen väldigt kraftfulla med alla frön som väntar på att få gro. Efter fotograferingen ger jag tillbaka dom till naturen.

Nu finns två nya bilder av fröbollar i min printshop.

New photography art prints of fruits, vegetables and berries.

Gooseberries. Tomatoes. Cantaloupe melons, apricots, grapes, raspberries, zucchini, radishes, plums, a tomato, a carrot and a sweet potato.

I’ve been adding new still lifes of fruits, berries and vegetables to my print shop regularly since the summer. I shot most of them in August and September when there was an overload of beautiful tomatoes and other berries, fruits and vegetables. I really love making still lifes when I get a hold of produce with other shapes sizes and maybe colours than the usual. But as is possible to see in my images I also buy ordinary produce from the supermarket, most of them are really beautiful as well.

It took me a while to get the new images into the print shop. After shooting I work quiet a lot with my images in photoshop. It is like painting for me. I work with the colours, the light, I sometimes add layers. I work with the image until I have the feeling I want and the aesthetic I want. I make test prints to see what they look like on paper and then maybe some more adjustments. All this is a long process so it takes a while to get the prints into the shop. I want the images to take a long time.

I wanted to show you the new prints and let you know I now also have a shop on my own domain. The prints are also in my shop on Etsy. The images here are linked to my new shop.

Limited edition rainy Copenhagen flower print.

This rainy flower print is part of an exhibition at Hotell Skeppsholmen in Stockholm Sweden. For my commercial work I’m represented by Wei and this is an exhibition by all the creators att Wei. All the art will be there until March, so go see!

It is a limited edition print and comes in two different sizes. I can have it framed if it is shipped within Sweden.

The rainy print below is also a limited edition print. All information is in my printshop. Link here.

food still lifes in Chicago restaurant

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.

rainy flower market photography art

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:

Limited edition, signed art photography giclée prints by Ulrika Ekblom Photography

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.

The prints are in my Etsy shop for now. You can also contact me directly for them. Link to the shop:

Size of image 40 cm x 56 cm.

Size of paper it is printed on 50 cm x 70 cm.

Plexiglasmonterade bilder

Jag vill visa några bilder jag har låtit montera bakom tjockt plexiglas. Jag brukar oftast göra mina bilder på ett matt väldigt vackert papper, men har vid tillfällen fått förfrågningar om plexiglasmontering. Så då gjorde jag det och gillar verkligen hur bilden går från tvådimensionell till tredimensionell.

Dessa går att beställa direkt av mig. Finns i olika storlekar. De finns en upphängningslist på baksidan som gör att bilden kommer en bit ut från väggen och är lätt att hänga upp.

Images mounted behind acrylic glass.

New food photography art prints

I’ve wanted to make images with pink and white currants for a while. I’ve never seen them in the supermarket and I don’t grow them in my tiny garden either. So about two weeks ago I was thinking about these berries again and went in to town for errands. I made sure to pass by the Saturday market and was so lucky to find one woman who sold white and pink currants from her garden. I also got some gooseberries and red currants. When I finally had these beautiful, pearl, jewel like berries in my possession I started making images. I finally had to stop the image-making when the berries weren’t as fresh any longer. But I ended up with quite many images that are now in my Etsy print shop.

I also got to photograph the prints in a beautiful home. I have a few more images from this home that I will show soon too. But for now these. Please visit my print shop to see more of my new prints.

images from travels in the past in Italy.

So many travels to Italy and many more to come. Probably not this year but maybe next. I have so many images from travels, both traveling for work and with my family. These are some of my favorite from the printshop. This is Italy to me, but in reality more food. I share one pizza from Naples with you here.

Beige and brown nature photography art prints of sea shells and dried nature.

This time of the year when nature is soon to turn green everything is beige and brown. It is quiet beautiful and I wanted to make a series of images for my photo print shop in those same colors. I started by taking photos outdoors of the reed grass and the sallow tree and dried grass and dried flowers. Then I brought the dried beige and brown nature indoors, into my studio. I also took my collection of sea shells out of my closet and all the dried flowers from last summer. I shot most of the photographs against an old beige piece of newsprint paper for the right feeling. This newsprint paper has been with me for a very long time. I bought when I went to art school in Washington D.C. in the nineties for my drawing classes. So it has an old vintage touch to it and is probably not the same color as it it was when i bought it. But very good as a simple background for these photographs. To see all images go to my shop here. They are all digital and downloadable, but if someone would prefer an actual print shipped to them just tell me and I will do it.
