The Girl In The Yellow Dress

Annika

The Girl In The Yellow Dress

There are countless meets every summer for the people in the unique Swedish sub culture raggare. I usually visit the one in Haninge, and this year was no exception. Two hundred or so vintage cars and around six hundred people gathered at Vegabaren for a few hours of fun. I took two hundred photos during my stay. This is Annika Jonsson. She will look familiar to some of you as it is the third year in a row that I have snapped a portrait of her. She was hoping to win her third title in five years in the category Best Greaser Girl. I will show you more photos from this event in the coming days.

I think she has a good chance of winning the title Steffe, that dress is gorgeous, great portrait and so interesting to read about 'Raggare'!!

Nice portrait. I like her hair color and dress color too.

Very pretty in a 1950s-ish way, a bit Marilyn Monroe-ish... lovely!

Grease Yes!
She's an absolutely stunning girl! It's a pity that there are a lot of shadows on her face in the first pic... A reflection screen can do miracles here.

I'm happy to report that Annika won her third title!
