Photo journal no 11: Crete

Almost exactly a year ago I traveled to the Greek island of Crete with a team of very talented and creative women. During a week we produced a cookbook with food cooked by the loveliest Cretan women. (More about the book in an earlier post, go here.) I shot lots and lots and many of the photos are printed in the book. I’ve looked through all images I shot again. Somehow my mind brings back strong memories of a trip a year later. Usually also only the good parts, making me want to go again. Trips are usually mostly good and so was this one. I’ve chosen some new images and edited them to reflect what my feeling of this trip is now a year later. (Some of the photos from Crete are already in my printshop, see a post about that here.)

Cookbook from Crete with Jill Johnson and Maria Molin Ljunggren

In october I went on an inspiring assignment to the island of Crete in Greece to make a cookbook together with Jill Johnson and Maria Molin Ljunggren. The recipes are from Jill and Maria and the many Cretan women they have become friends with after many years visiting Crete. The theme is food from Crete and here are some of the huge amounts of photos I took for the book. You can read more about the book and get it here.

On this cookbook making trip to Crete was also Lisa Kullberg (graphic designer), Mia Gahne (writer), Liselotte Forslin (food stylist) and Ingela Holm (publisher).


The Ocean

When working on the book about butter (Smör – kärna, bryna, baka) I took some images of the Swedish landscape around where I live. Landscape and nature photography hasn’t interested me very much before but as it turns out I want to do more. So apart from planning more photoshoots I have also started looking through images I already have from different travels searching for landscape and nature images. I have found many I really like and I’m thinking of what to use them for and I’m starting by showing them here. These are from Greece and the Canary Islands.
