Midsummer, as one of my favourite Swedish holidays, is celebrated with flowers in your hair, or with the garden on your head, as one of my friends from New Zealand put it. The eternal optimism that the sun will keep shining until the late hours, but in reality running back and forth from eating outside into bringing the festivities inside due to the sky opening it self, in combination with drinking snaps and singing their songs, are all part of the swedish way of celebrating the summer solstice. If you ever make your way to Sweden during this one special Friday, grab a hold of a local swede, preferably one that holds a small summer house by a picturesque lake and demand to join in on the fun, by quickly adding that you will bring the snaps and a joke or a funny song from your home country. I promise, it will be a day to remember, celebrating swedish midsummer.

Just over a year ago I photographed a beautiful collection of pieces made by the Norwegian designer Tiril Stallemo. She has spent these past days in New York, showing off her collection at New York Fashion Week. Pretty amazing, great work Tiril!
If you're interested in knowing more about her collection, then you can find her blog HERE.
Here's the final result from our collaboration, with the beautiful model Maria Wessel and also some backstage photos taken by Lars Evensen, my awesome assistant for that shoot.
