Always so much more…

When I look at the time given every day there is always so much more that wants to be done. Always…! Then this always feeling falls into a content feeling. Gratitude! Gratitude for the day! Gratitude for the moments! Gratitude for life! For the beauty of it all. Every breath filled with passion! Life! Always a new breath. Life! Every moment new… And since I don`t have time right now to make a new selection out of all the thousands of pictures I´ve got to make a good story here, I just say ”Hi, here I am in this moment of time”. Life! Gratitude! Smiling from my heart to you… By the way, I´m in London working right now! Having a wonderful time.

Oskari…

So, I`m home from Paris fashion Week where I saw the shows of Dries van Noten, Ann Demeulemeester, Issey Miyake, Kenzo…very few this time…and the showrooms of Comme des Garcons + Junya Watanabe. As I went to Paris I was on option for a catwalk that I would have loved to do, Yohji Yamamoto. He was thinking to use some older models /personalities but in the end he went for only young ones. My personal wish is that all designers would do a mix of ages and style, at least sometimes, like JP Gaultier always does. In his last pret-a-porter show, he had 3 (or was it 4) great ladies on the catwalk, all of them older than me, one of them did a leg kick that could compete with a 20 year old dancer, another, a lady around 90, had a face full of wrinkles…the audience went wild…YES I WAS THERE!!! At his show as well! So happy to have been at all these shows and very happy to have been at JPs last show! A GREAT CELEBRATION at the Grand Rex! And I was at the inauguration of the exhibition SWEDISH FASHION GOES PARIS at the Swedish Cultural Centre, in le Marais, also a great event! Cia Jansson from ELLE and Mikael Elmenbäck from BON magazine were both there. AND LOTS of people! I LOVE the Swedish Cultural Centre, where I once had an exhibition myself-91 and then I lived there for almost a year, in love with the Swedish cultural attache who lived there then… Those were the days and now it is a place that I love. I love the cafe, the place with my favourite park, the Swedes there and the cakes they bake. I never eat cakes except there (almost) and never drink champagne except with Kenzo (almost). These are some of my adventures and there are many more. This story about OSKARI dancing on the photo shoot for DANSK, was on it`s way already as I left for Paris. In my wildest dreams I would sit in Paris and write…it did not happen. I did not carry my computer along with me. I had a good and simply easy time, meeting many friends…precious important meetings. That was GOOD for me and what is good creates more good, for me , my friends, family, society, work, cities, countryside, the planet Earth. Sustainability begins in the individual. I do slow blogging right now. It can change tomorrow. Many stories still to be told, many from the 70s and many from now. The importance is that it somehow makes a difference and I hope my stories do. That is my intention. Live slow with intention to grow. Always connected to the heart.

OSKARI is this young man from Finland. He is a dancer and very, very friendly. I love friendly people and working together with someone like Oskari is a privilege.

then he took of in the dance. Surrendered. Watching him was also a kind of surrender in the heart. The magic of the movement of dance…

The magic of the movement of dance…feet connected to the ground. Freedom of expression.

DANSK behind the scenes…

FASHIONWEEK IN STOCKHOLM is over! It was wonderfully intense seeing all the shows and being at most of the parties meeting new and old friends from the fashion networks. GLAMOUR Paris is out! A Whole issue with FRIDA GUSTAVSSON. I`m in it as well, as Fridas guest! I have lots of photos to share from the day of shooting in the beautiful northern archipelago. My own Inner retreat in untouched Swedish forests, swimming in beautiful hidden lakes has happened and I have a story to tell…5 intense days in Dalarna going through 20 big boxes full of papers before bringing them home in 6 boxes only has also happened, while having breaks swimming every day in a beautiful big lake in 17°C. AND NOW a few days ago, the greatest show ever in Sweden, the celebration of LINDEX 60 YEARS in fashion a collaboration with JPGAULTIER happened in Gothenburg and I was on the catwalk. That and the catwalk I did for JPGAULTIER in Paris in mars this year I have a treasure of backstage photos from…so…in due time it will ALL come out here. Being who I am, living my life full on from day to day, it takes some time to get all my impressions out on the blog.  It`s all about time! And I like to do it step by step, one story at a time. SO first I want to complete the DANSK photo session story with my own pictures from the day at work, behind the scenes…here they are… _DSC7188

Back to Dansk and Ninja Hanna the photographer. Loved this young hip sweet tattooed woman. She was very easy going to work with and I love her photography, which is always a good way to start the day, curious how the pictures would be with me and the young men. A special story based on the story of me with Sarah Moon in the early 70s. In my imagination the men would be feeding and caring for me but it was the other way around as you have seen in the earlier story. We were working in a beautiful apartment in the middle of the city on a hot hot summer day.

_DSC7224

Dan was Ninjas super assistant, a photographer himself but now assisting this day. I still don`t understand all about memory cards and backups, erasing the pictures from the cards to take new ones, mine are always full and my computer is always on the edge of being full. Maybe it`s my age after all, not learning new technology. Happily I´m getting an assistant now…

Robert best stylist ever, I love how he mixes styles together, whether it´s all white or ethnic and wild. Here it is mens Fashion. Robert Rydberg is a stylist icon in Sweden.

The heat outside. The heat inside. Them smoking in the windows. Light through the smoke. Working. Posing. Drinking lots of water. Calm day  a calm feeling in the middle of working. The heat. The people. The talking. Eating together. Togetherness. Never mind being inside this great summer day. Working with this team was worth it all.

_DSC7241

Robert! Love you…

_DSC7225

Hanging in the window was the favourite place. The heat this day! And still hair master Kalle Eklund was wearing his french beret most of the time. Kalle is special, talented, creative with hair. That is a special art as well. So many artists in collaboration for a fashion shoot.

Kevin did his first job. He just finished school, got discovered on the street and now he’s a star working with the big ones, like Prada. In this story with hair coloured red, also the skin on the forehead red. And lipstick. I wonder how the young men use their time as models to connect them to the rest of their lives. As I could use the travelling to get to know other cultures and to know myself, which was my purpose. All experience I have access to today in everything I do. It´s of course different for everyone but I just want to say that everything around modelling can open so many new doors. Used well it is such a great thing to do. Good luck to you Kevin Carlbom. May your light shine on many you meet.

Purple nails on Oskari Nyyssälä fits his playful personality well. Give us a dance Oskari! We love to see you dance! To share your joy of dance.

Inspiration from the 70s…Sarah Moon

This story was the inspiration for the fashion shoot I did for DANSK magazine (see my last blogpost) according to Robert Rydberg. He also told me that it has inspired many photographers and stylists the last 40 years. I did not know but of course it makes sense that beautiful creative expressions from the past inspires the future. SO I`m reposting! I have to do this again! Love this series with Sarah Moon for Harpers Queen early 70s. It was her first ever story for a magasine and it was such an important one. Her and I had already done some jobs together by then but just one or two so when she asked me to model this story I was thrilled. I Always loved to work with Sarah. Her poetry, her very special atmosphere and poetic being, working almost in total silence, an aura of deep meditative stillness in the room with an edge of intensive creativity. She had this apartment painted in gold for this shoot. It belonged to friends of her, overlooking the Jardin de Luxembourg in Paris. They kept the gold. Thank you Sarah this will always stay in my memory as one of the most precious jobs ever. The contact with the young boy was part of the magic. Since it was so intimate it also needed to be held within deep boundaries. Creating a fairytale movie. in between shoots we were just playful and ordinary, talking, laughing, eating…a good day at work. Unforgettable!

Modelling for DANSK…changing roles

I am a model! Am I a model? I´m just Me a human being on earth right now, very happy and grateful to be HERE. Sometimes I do modelling and I love doing that. I get to work with the most amazing people. Everyday working is different from any other day. So I`m blessed and I know it. This special day was a job for the danish magazine DANSK, with stylist ROBERT RYDBERG and photographer NINJA HANNA

I was extra extra, the story was mens fashion and based on a story I did with SARAH MOON early 70s , then it was me being cared for by a young boy. This time it was the other way around, I was caring for the young men in the story.  Actually… adoring them was the theme!
