Annika & Siri

Annika & Siri

Summer is here and I decided it was time for summer street portrait. This is Annika. She lives in one of the four apartments in the old and very interesting building known locally today as Vasko's Pizza Place. The girl in the stroller is Annika's daughter Siri. When I asked Annika if I could take a portrait she asked if I was the guy who had taken a photo of that old house at Hammarbergsvägen. That would be me I told her, and here are the photos. Annika works as a costume designer at Vår Teater in Farsta, a theatre run by the Cultural Committee in Stockholm. The work is also her main hobby she told me. But for now she is Mammaledig which means that she is taking her 16 month long paid maternity leave.

Another fine portrait, Steffe. Annika looks to be a strong woman...I'd guess she has definite opinions and could hold her own in any discussion...

I like this portrait, but I have to say that I was impressed by your fascinating images of 'that old house'. It is quite incredible that someone lived there without any modern comfort, surrounded by these pictoresque objects.

Steffe, another great portrait. you are certainly becoming famous among locals. We all enjoy your photos.

I did meet a woman yesterday that I photographed last summer. A hairdresser, but she claimed that she hadn't dared to check out her photo!

I did post a few photos from that old house here back in January. That place still freaks me out a bit!
