The Prince

The Prince


This is Mikael Trolin. But his friends call him The Prince. That's because he is a Prince. His dad is King of Kwande an emirate in Nigeria. His mother is an artist and this week Mikael is in charge of an art installation in the garden at Tullhuset in Dalarö and that's were I met him yesterday. Here is a photo from the installation with an interesting story. Mikael lives here at Dalarö. He is a musician and has released a few songs. Off and on he works as a music teacher. Mikael has four kids. He is also a politician in the Stockholm county council. He is a member of the Liberal Party. If you understand Swedish you can read The Prince's blog here.

This is my 63th photo for the 100 Strangers project. You can see the rest of my strangers in my Set.

Lots of politics there for sure. Even a poll on whether the liberal party is liberal enough to win the next election. Most think not, apparently. I wonder what "win" would mean for a party usually harvesting less than ten percent of the national vote...

Your idea is great. I've not yet dared to follow you.
It's nice to see "ordinary people" with strange destiny as most of us .

Not really my idea. The 100 Strangers project was started by a journalist, Teppo, in Finland. And now after 170 portraits I'm well aware that the ordinary person doesn't exist! Everyone has an interesting story to tell. All you have to do is ask the right questions! But you should give it a go. The worst thing that can happen is that someone will turn you down.
