Strike a Pose

Tove

This in Tove. She's a ninth grade student from Västerhaninge. I have met her before, but she looked a bit different that time when she was selling strawberries by the roadside. Come the fall Tove will be a secondary student at Djurgymnasiet which is an animal training school in Stockholm. It's a three year long education where Tove will learn everything about canine behaviour. She hasn't made any real plans for the future, but would like to work at Swedish Customs with narcotic detection dogs.

What an interesting young girl to be thinking of her future this way already.

I have to say (have I already?) that I look forward to your portrait shots. It's like I get to meet some of the people of your country. I like that you tell something about them too.

Is this a girl out of Girl with a Dragon Tattoo?

Pierre said...

All your portraits are wonderful. Love this one and Roses for Mikaela too...

You are truly amazing, Steffe: you chat up any stranger, not only getting them to strike a pose, but to tell you their life's story...
Love it!

Gunn said...

Gosh, you are very good at stopping people, have a chat and get them to relax in front of your camera!!
I like the way you tell their story.
And I am working on getting better at the same thing...... You should make a book about people at Haninge!:-)
