Salon Solstice

The winter solstice was on Monday December 21, at 11:02. The day before I met up with Lea Sjövall and Li Johansson for a photoshoot. By the time we started the sun had already set, so we had to rely on the studio lights. For this shoot we decided to start in my living room, which has a bit more space, plus some new linnen curtains, that together creates a different look than the Green Room.

We then changed to the Green room, which provides a bit cleaner backdrop.
