And the winner is…

Dear friends. I am happy to announce that I have just returned from Yantai in China and the Gourmand World Cookbook Awards. In the category Best Cookbook Photography I received a worldwide first price. I am very happy and honored. In photography and music, among many other subjects, it is very difficult, if possible, to find winners. Because of that I am especially honored and thankful for the best award that I have ever received. .

The images are from the book “Smörstekt, fortsättningen. Med LCHF-kost för hjärtat”.

Writer Gun-Marie Nachtnebel and graphic design Anna Gunneström.

Snowflakes up close

Look at this amazing story about a farmer that documented snow flakes with a camera. Not just any camera! Amazing, isn´t it?

More than 5300 different flakes. A warm and interesting story about photography.

In 1904, Wilson Bentley, who developed an apparatus to photograph snowflakes in the 1880s, beseeched the Smithsonian to care for his collection. – http://wapo.st/2jvEKAa

This Vermont farmer’s snowflake photos were a lifelong passion.

I found it in The Washington Post.

Don´t miss!

I am afraid I will, and I am very sorry for that. If you live close enough you SHOULD go there. Paul Biddle is a very good friend of mine, and one of the best photographers that I know. And know of. He has the gift to always creating interesting and surprising images from his imagination.

Photography  is also, among many other things, capturing dreams. Seeing the inner vision and to let that come out. Paul is one of the best. I am sure that he and his colleagues will create a wonderful exhibition that will open up your fantasy as well. Go see!

Marc Riboud remembered

This will be the year , unfortunately, when many of the most talented left this life. Read more and learn about Marc Riboud.

This is from The New York Times.

Mr. Riboud’s career of more than 60 years carried him routinely to turbulent places throughout Asia and Africa in the 1950s and ’60s, but he may be best remembered for two photographs taken in the developed world.

The first, from 1953, is of a workman poised like an angel in overalls between a lattice of girders while painting the Eiffel Tower — one hand raising a paintbrush, one leg bent in a seemingly Chaplinesque attitude.

The second, from 1967, is of a young woman presenting a flower to a phalanx of bayonet-wielding members of the National Guard during an anti-Vietnam War demonstration at the Pentagon.

Both images were published in Life magazine during what is often called the golden age of photojournalism, an era Mr. Riboud exemplified.

After the rain

Just a few pictures from after the rain. We, and the nature, needed the rain. The thunder  came very close. It is always so peaceful after a rain ,so I went out for a short walk. And I brought my camera along.

Nonsens?

Compared to the wonderful and important images I wrote about yesterday by Nick Brandt, these are just nonsense. But, they had to be made, I think. They are from Diani Beach, Mombasa and from last week. I am not so much for sunbathing so I rather keep to the shadows. Going on my own short walks exploring the surroundings. Looking up, but mostly down 😉
