This is a piece of cake

gunnel5

I’m giving a talk at the immigration center this week. “You can talk about what ever you want, as long as it’s in Swedish” they told me.
I´m going to talk about my grandfather’s photos. Read more about it at the bottom of this post.

Anyway, today as I’m going through the photos I found this one, and felt the need to share it.
It’s my great grandmother and my great aunt holding a boy’s hands so he can walk in a straight line on the fence.

Behind them you see Gunnel (my aunt) walking on that fence with no effort at all. No support needed. Her face tells the camera “This is a piece of cake, I could do this with my eyes closed

Love it.
Ok now back to those dusty boxes of negatives.

Today I´m preparing my talk that I´m giving at the immigration center this week. It´s in front of a small group of people who are taking their Swedish lessons there. I´ve been told they will understand me if I talk slow. =)
I´m going to talk about my grandfather Sven who worked for the military, tending to their horses at Strömsholms Castle. During his spare time he took a lot of photographs. A LOT. and now all those photos are in my care.
I´ve been wanting to do something with this collection for a long time, and this talk might be just what I need to get started.
There are so many everyday-type of photographs from the 50´s when my mom and her siblings grew up.  He photographed the same type of things that I photograph now, 70 years later. Family stuff like breakfast, swimming and haning out.

I´m bringing my mom so she can help me getting all the facts straight.

The work I did for Sandberg wallpaper is finally out. Yay!

Their latest wallpaper collection is called “Familj” and Jens and I photographed 15 different wallpapers from that collection in our house last spring. (Yes, they are all over our house now)
It was such a lovely assignment and it ‘s so nice to finally show you the photos. Below is a video of me flipping through the wallpaper book that you can find at their retailers.

Doggy Daycare

Monday morning.
We have a new member of the Jenny and Jens studio. His name is Elliot, he is 6 months old and prances around the studio on his four legs wagging his tale while we work. He will be with us during the days when his family is at work/school.

So far it´s going great. He really loves Jens and has found a spot on the floor were he enjoys to sleep..
