Chet Baker playing at Fasching in Stockholm

I celebrate that today, on this very day 41 years ago, I photographed Chet Baker at the Fasching Jazzclub here in Stockholm. Some of those images can be seen at my exhibition at Fasching today and until April. I have added the review at the bottom, to be read in Swedish.

Fasching is at Kungsgatan 63, Stockholm

I haven´t posted anything here for a very long time. Perhaps today´s post will be a change for the better.

Until next time. 😊

I Love Paris in The Springtime

Well, who does n´t? I have just spent a few in the city attending the Gourmand World Cookbook Summit. Spring happened to be there too. Always inspiring. Of course I managed to get some pictures from the Eiffel Tower.  Here is a small selection for you.

Only one image is made with my phone…

It has been too long since I last wrote here and showed some images. It will not take that long before next time. More from Paris coming up.

Perhaps to be included in the 2019 calendar

These images could be selected for the 2019 calender. A project I have made for about 20 years together with my dear friend Peter Schaeublin in Schaffhaussen, Switzerland. And the Stamm printers. The calendar has always been a giveaway and is not for sale.

“a man with the camera of an artist, the pen of a poet and a genius for the impossible”

Said by Harrison Salisbury about David Douglas Duncan. A life in photography. This is fantastic reading from Washington Post with many great links for more interesting material.

It is not always as you think it is…

How a Galway Pub Led to a Skyscraper

A friend just sent me this article about another classic image many thought, for good reasons, was made by Hine. A great story. He found it in The New York Times.

Rare photographs that changed lives

And photography still changes lives! 🙂  Pelle

Twenty-four photographs from the Lewis Hine archive have been auctioned in New York. The rare prints were from the collection of the late New York photographer Isador Sy Seidman.

American sociologist Hine was one of the most important documentary photographers of the 20th Century. Because the notion of photojournalism and documentary did not exist at the time, Hine called his projects “photo stories”, using images and words to fight for the causes he believed in.

The prints span Hine’s career and many are from his most well-known projects, centring on the poor and disadvantaged from the Carolinas, New York and Pittsburgh.

I found these photographs in BBC.
