It started in 1998. I had met Peter Schäublin at a Sinar workshop in Schaffhaussen, Switzerland. At the time he worked at the company as head of prints, brochures etc. We became friends and started to share ideas. We came up with the idea of a calendar and made the first one in 1998, together with the local Swiss printer Stamm. We kept it up until 2019, with only two years that we missed. Time and economics change so it is no more. It was a dear challenge to me to come up with new ideas for images every year. The very first images were produced with my Dicomed Digital 4×5″ scanner camera.
Peter, a very talented photographer and graphic designer, developed a design that complimented my images. Over the years it became more and more playful.
Here is a small selection of images. I used flowers, toys, food, used gloves, vegetables, old tools, ice, instruments, spoons, watches etc. for props. It is all very much “Pelle Style”.
If you would like to see more images from our cooperation , have a look at my homepage: https://www.znapshot.se/kalendrar-2002-2019
I really love being a photographer!
