This past Saturday William Jögi and Sofia Engwall went to Slakthusområdet by Globen with me for a dance photoshoot. As the name suggests this area used to be a giant slaughter house for cattle, and was one of the first buildings constructed with steel and concrete when it was inaugurated in January 1912. Stockholm City has the last few years carefully been restoring parts of the area, transforming it from an industrial usage to a residential area. We photographed in the “Förbindelsehall” which was used to transfer animals between the slaughter house and the refrigerated storage units. Since this place had so much character I decided to use a 35 mm slightly wider lens to get more of the surroundings in the pictures.
Many thanks to William and Sofia for a fun photoshoot!
