Carnegie

Cover image for Carnegie 2018 annual report. Carnegie is an Investment Bank with ventures in securities brokerage, investment banking, and private banking. David Carnegie founded the company Carnegie & Co AB in Gothenburg in 1803. Today they have the headquarter in Stockholm, offices in the Nordic region and in London, New York, and Luxembourg. The company used to be on the Stockholm Stock Exchange. Today it is privately held, and the business is today conducted through Carnegie Investment Bank. The image is composed of a collection of letters and financial symbols arranged to form a shadow resembling a tree. The shadow is genuine and created in-camera with studio lighting, and only minor touch up was made in post-production. The shadow of the tree is symbolizing growth, and the copy “Hålllbar tillväxt genom idéer, kunskap och kapital” translates to “Sustainable growth through ideas, knowledge, and capital”.

LilyVe

LilyVe makes their jewelry in medical Titanium and Surgical Steel, also known as stainless steel 316L. These metals are both considered to be the most gentle to your skin and body. I have created images of LilyVe´s earrings,  the images photographed in the studio against a collection of white disks. In post-production, we then partially recolored the background set.

Valio Oddlygood

Images photographed for Valio Oddlygood. Oat drinks and oat-based yogurts are healthy, milk-free, and above all, delicious alternatives to milk and yogurt for you who choose a plant-based option. In addition to the oats natural properties, Valio has enriched the products with the minerals iodine and calcium, vitamin D, and vitamins B2 and B12. I have photographed the products in the studio against a blue-screen. Then, in post-production, we replaced the background with a stock image of an oat field. The studio-lighting aimed to give the feeling of a clear day, but without the hard shadows, not to lose focus on the packaging.

New Renault Kadjar

Winter images of the New Renault Kadjar. Kadjar is a compact crossover SUV in production since 2015, which shares the platform with Nissan Qashqai. The platform allows for both front and four-wheel drive constructions. The most considerable improvement on the new Kadjar is the engine with better performance and fuel economy. The new grille is wider and has chrome inserts.

The car in the image is one of the preproduction prototypes transported from France to the north of Sweden in a covered trailer. Besides the photos of the New Kadjar, we produced other winter images of Renault Koleos, Captur, Zoe, and the brand sibling Dacia Duster. The pictures photographed in Jämtland County, located in Sweden, is aimed at the European Market.

Vårsalongen Liljevalchs

I have three works exhibited at the Liljevalchs Spring Salon in Stockholm, opening on the 25th of January. The edition is 3 + 1 A.P., and frames are handmade of White Ash finished with Schellack. 

The exhibited works are a part of a larger project about urban development areas in Stockholm, which translates to Stadsutvecklingsområde in Swedish.

The image titled Stadsutvecklingsområde 1629 is photographed in Nya Ulriksdal, Solna, and depicts an old building moved from its original location in waiting at a temporary location for a new home. The building is one of two houses built between 1912 and 1920 as housing for Railroad Workers. Locally the houses are referred to as Rödingarna, which in English translates to the red ones. The buildings could not remain in their original location due to the construction of an onramp for Friends Arena in 2014. There has been a debate on exactly where the building will move in the future after years in limbo; they seem to be heading for Överjärva Gård, an area for recreation where other old buildings of cultural value reside.

The other two images exhibited at Vårsalongen Liljevalchs are from Årstafältet and Värtahamnen. The Image from Årstafältet in south Stockholm; photographed just before the construction started, and the area was newly fenced off. The fence; thrown over in the image, most likely by people irritated over the planned construction. The image from Värtahamnen shows a group of people on the way to the nearby ferry landing; in the background is an oil cistern under demolishment. The old harbor area Värtahamnen are being converted to an area for housing and are a part of the large scale project Norra Djurgårdsstaden.
