The past year I have been doing the majority of my photoshoots in and around Näsbypark. So when we now had the opportunity to go a bit further I went on a google maps search, trying to find interesting new locations to visit. One of the things that came up were the old church ruins in Sigtuna, which is Swedens oldest still existing city, about an hour’s drive from Stockholm. With me on this journey back almost 1000 years in the Swedish history were the dancers Aline Sparf, Anna Friman and Anaïs Wilson. We also had the seven-month-old puppy Nala with us as our assistant in all manners relating to chewing and chasing sticks. There were multiple church ruins in Sigtuna, but we had our eyes set on St Olof’s church ruin which is located right next to Maria’s brick church. When we arrived the metal gates into the church were locked, which from talking to locals in the area was not normally the case. So instead we went looking for St Per’s church ruin, which was not quite as well preserved, but still impressive. Here the iron gates were open, and we could enter the church ruins.
