Design and style from a Scandinavian perspective

Stockholms Fotoantikvariat, a shop for rare and used photography books

 
 
I don't know if you remember this picture from my Instagram that I posted here a couple of weeks ago? I promised that I would go back there with a proper photographer so that I could share this very special place with you. I kept my promise!
 
Last Friday I met up with Mikael Axelsson (the photographer behind these lovely pictures from the home of the man behind Artilleriet) at Stockholms Fotoantikvariat and got to work. Well, mostly Mikael. I was rather just pointing at things I wanted him to shoot, and chatting with Karl-Erik Jagare, the owner of this inspiring place.
 
The shop is full of interesting little details, and I love the raw concrete floor that together with the aged, but very pretty, glass ceiling and the seemingly unorganized piles of books everywhere, creates a wonderful and relaxed atmosphere. The huge bookshelf is filled with hundreds of amazing photo books, and I could stand there for hours just flipping through book after book. I can really recommend this shop if you are in Stockholm, for inspiration, gift shopping (for yourself or a loved one) or just to chat with Karl-Erik and hear one of his many stories about the photographers whose work he is selling. There are also ever changing exhibitions here, showing both big names and promising up-and-coming talents. If you are not in town, you are in luck anyway, because there is a webshop!
