The Soulmates

The Soulmates

Meet the soulmates. Stålis and Faber. It was hard not to notice them in their long black leather coats in Handen a couple of days ago, and I figured they would be interesting to talk with. They told me that they share everything. Like what? I asked. Oh, you know, everything from boys to underwear! Stålis is a secondary school student at the electrician school at Telefonplan. Faber has quit her studies and is hoping for a future in the music business. The girls play in a new band. Stålis is a vocalist and Faber plays the drums. They are members of Black Sheep at Solna, a music scene where many girls play. When there's a gig at Black Sheep the girls help out with security. Faber is working there at the moment and they are planning for a two day music festival next summer.

This is a great portrait and a great story. I love the affection between them, the physical contact, and the echo of their heads leaning at the same angle in opposite directions. Terrific capture, Steffe.

I get the impression from being a fan of your blog that there are an inordinate amount of people in your area either in or hoping to be in the music business.

I was thinking the same thing. You have talked to quite a few involved in music in one way or another. I really like this photo. You can almost feel the deep friendship here.

Everyone loves music. And I'm pretty good at reading people.

This is cool! Since I started a City Daily Photo blog about three months ago I have talked to so many people that I wouldn't have had any reason to talk to before. Now I am a (friendly, genuinely interested) nosy parker! I am going to take some time to read through your people postings...
Cheers!
