Mixed GOT // City guide

I have often thought about doing a city guide of Gothenburg, inspired by early VSCO and the city guides they posted on their blog. But for me it will be sort of a city guide made on film. Film because I enjoy that experience more than digital (also the results). My beautiful black Hasselblad 500CM with Portra 400 and Leica M7 with Tri-X, is the intended gear I will use (all 50mm equivalent). I haven't really come around to do so many places yet, but I see this as a long term project, that I will pick up again during the spring/summer.

First place out is Magasinsgatan. It has more alternative side compared to the main shopping streets. Here you'll find the best coffee, food trucks, interior/clothing stores. I both love the look and feel of this place. It makes me feel like I'm not really in Sweden. And that's actually a good thing! More on that some other time... 

I hope you enjoy our beautiful Gothenburg and I hope to see some of you amazing photographers do the same for your city!

From Paris with love

I’m in love with Paris :) And I’m so happy that we finally went there. We went for a weekend to celebrate my 40th birthday :) Champagne for breakfast will do any day! After a lot of contemplating about travel gear, I have found the most dynamic duo ever (for me). A Hasselblad 500CM with the Carl Zeiss 80mm 2.8 CF and my monochrome setup with the Leica M7/Summicron 50mm f2. No digital, just film. That is for I’ve come to love the analog camera experience. But also for the results. A luxurious setup for sure but on the other hand probably a setup for life.

The Hasselblad loaded with the color film of my choice, Kodak Portra 400. A film stock that I felt would do Paris justice in it’s color tones. For 35mm b&w it’s always Tri-X. Such a classic film stock that I’ve come to really love. Paris is really such an amazingly beautiful city that staying for a few days did'n’t feel enough with time to capture it’s diverse beauty. Here are some of my favourites from this trip. All scanned beautifully by my favourite lab Carmencita Film Lab.

 

Summertime blues

Just 10 min from home, on the coast of Gothenburg, lies Hovås kallbadhus. It's a place were people come to enjoy the beach, but also to go in the water in the winter. On the beach there are these little blue and withe beach houses that I just knew would look great on film. I took my Contax 645 medium format camera and loaded up on my two favorite color films, Kodak Portra 400 & Fuji PRO400H. Here you'll see both film stocks and to be honest they didn't differ that much in these lighting condicions. 

It was a warm and sunny day that warms me when I look at the photos, now when the snow is laying on the ground. I hope you enjoy them as much I do.
