I always had a weak spot for the test strips from the darkroom. You know the ones you find under piles of boxes when you are cleaning the darkroom. Might be nostalgia, or the hint of process they somehow contain. I used to tape them up on the wall next to each other and watch them form new things together. Like an accidental collage.
I love when you get a whole day in the darkroom. It happens less and less frequently. Coffee, a good playlist (today is a blue day ). Im about 300 prints into a new project all shot on film. The old Mamiya RZ, Tri-x and Ilford fibre paper. Its so soothing. Here are some random previews from my phone.
I have been working a lot in the last couple of years with the perfume brand Vilhelm Parfumerie. It was founded a couple of years ago by Jan Ahlgren in New York. It’s always so much fun to help with a brand from the start. Especially when it comes with a lot of freedom of creation. And the thing with perfume in particular is that it’s been done in such a similar way for so long, at least it feels that way. More of that later.
For these images we worked with the very talented Stockholm based ballerina Frida Hambraeus. And in keeping with brand spirit I collaged some as well. Hair and make up by Philip Fohlin at LinkDetails.
A couple of images I did for dear friend Little Liffner earlier this autumn.

Its been a very busy period, and still is. Wonderful. I took the time update my site last night. Have a look. Here are two images from a recent shoot.
The view from dear Olofs office is as close as a view gets to being cubistic.
