I was in Stockholm this weekend to celebrate the release of the book I recently photographed with my friend My Feldt! And today is the official release day!!
This is the first book I’ve photographed that’s not my own, so to speak, so it was a completely new experience, doing it together with someone. And let me tell you, it’s been such an eye opener! I always imagined I wouldn’t be able to work that closely with someone but I’ve realized I actually prefer that. I also very much enjoy photographing people and nature, and to not style things too much.
We were very spontaneous with every shoot, sometimes we didn’t even bring props. It’s been an adventure and I’m so so excited and proud of this book that we made together and designer Emilie Crispin Ekström did such an amazing job putting it all together! I wish I could show you all the photos 🙂
Should you be interested in having a copy of your own you can buy it from here (they deliver outside of Sweden too!).
So let’s talk a little bit about the book! It’s in Swedish (but I’m keeping my fingers crossed for several translations of course!) and the title is ‘Blåbärssnår, äppelskrutt och rabarberskugga’ which is such a beautiful title, but it’s difficult to do it justice in English. It’s a baking book with seasonal recipes by My of course, but it has so much more – and it’s full of her beautiful texts as well.
She also made all the illustrations!! Aaaand of course I had the pleasure of tasting just about everything.. so I can guarantee that the recipes are delicious! By the way, My runs a bakery and pastry shop in my town, together with Johan, called Feldts and we’re so immensely proud to have something that great here.
Seriously, if you’re ever on the Swedish west coast you need to come by and taste EVERYTHING! I mean it.
