CELEBRATING SWEDISH MIDSUMMER by maria revelj

_MG_0182.JPG

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. 

Tiril Stallemo at New York Fashion Week. by maria revelj

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.

Last week, me and a couple of friends had a little photo adventure. About one hour drive from Oslo, on Nesodden, there is a big cave that you can walk into. I had never been there before, so it was exciting to see and an absolutely beautiful and perfect location for taking some pictures. Here are some behind the scenes photos and the result from the ones that I shot.        Photgrapher: Maria Revelj    Assistant: Emelie Lindberg    Models: Karin Kristine Gaulin and Elin Sandve
