on Ali

Shot these for the new collaboration between Ali Zedtwitz and Weekday. Hair & make up by Nina Belkhir. Josefine Z and Rasmus G as models. And got that Polaroid 600 se as well. Sweet.







on today

Working on my new books. Its a hard job managing 9 ones. Also today: Plan four shoots, brainstorm on two projects I’m doing this fall, update my goals, take E out on a surprise dinner, hopefully visit some friends in a gallery and rest. Went to the gym this morning and realized I’m badly out of shape. Might have started out a little to hard, can barely lift my arms to answer the phone now.

The wall at this point. A few images is yet to be released. Will post them soon.

on being back

Back in Stockholm again. The final part of the trip was very nice. Best was without doubt lunch at Arzak, we sat for more than 6 hours, lost track of how many dishes we had (8? 10? 15?), and was given a tour of the restaurant by Elina and Juan Mari. Very impressive winecellar, and a very inspiring experimentkitchen. Promised them not to publish any images of the dishes taken with my compactcamera. Best dish was however the Figs with foie-gras oil with caramelized sugar on top.

We went to Bilbao and the Guggenheim museum. You have got to love a museum that has a very strong connection to the past like that, and still doesn’t feel a bit nostalgic in its current exhibitions. Finally found a book about Yves Klein that I have missed for a long time in their bookshop. On the way home we stayed at Marquis de Riscal, the winery that opened a hotel designed by Frank Gehry, who also did the Guggenheim in Bilbao. Great Wine, great food, great design. And we ate at a lot of other nice restaurant as well… Feels like I have gained 5 kg. Back to the gym.
