A new album cover

Where you are, Linga Sjöqvist by Anna Isabella Sandberg

Yesterday a friend of mine joined me on the balcony for some interesting conversations and some singing. I got so inspired I decided to make a new album cover for one of her songs just for fun. Her name is Linga Sjöqvist and she is working with several producers in Sweden. I love her voice, its both sweet and deep. And also she is a great model for photography. I always get so inspired when she comes over and sing for me. Some how a musician and a painter is a great combo. She sings when I paint. Together we encourage eachother not to give up on our careers and we are not competing in the same field so there is no extra tension in our creative relationship. I love it! Check this new single out! What do you think?

The Resonance and Henric De La Cour

This weekend the Swedish bands The Resonance, Javelynn and Henric De La Cour played at pipeline. I took some photos together with Jimmy Lilja and Cathrine Fandén. Here is a link to one of my photos in pipelines photostream on facebook: https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=506898896074767&set=pb.144030799028247.-2207520000.1385067373.&type=3&theater

This became one of my favourite photographs:

I like the warm shades in it, the lightening and the shiloutte.

And this is my favourite picture I took on the band Henric De La Cour

Black and White. Dead Alkberg

This weekend I saw one genius after another on stage. The Swedish bands “Kolbacken”, “Dead Alkberg” and “Brända Barn” preformed on Pipeline. I only took a few photos with my cell phone camera this time since I had some trouble with my SLR. I realized how fun and dramatic black and white rock photos are, so I am thinking about taking more of those from now on instead of my regular colorful pictures. But it all depends on the music, what kind it is and what kind of style the band has. Here is a picture on “Mattias Alkberg” from “Dead alkberg”. They are quite dark and a little sad in their lyrics, plus they themselves played a little with black and white on stage, considering their masked faces. So using black and white instead of color was a good fit.
