Vague de souvenirs

Last Monday was the Swedish National Day, but instead of going to Skansen or Hagaparken to celebrate I instead met up with Alicia Gérardin for an afternoon dance photoshoot in Näsbypark. This was our second photoshoot, the first one League of Nations was back in March.

The day the weather was amazing, so we first headed down to Kråkudden.

Demain, dès l’aube, à l’heure où blanchit la campagne,
Je partirai. Vois-tu, je sais que tu m’attends.
J’irai par la forêt, j’irai par la montagne.
Je ne puis demeurer loin de toi plus longtemps.

Je marcherai les yeux fixés sur mes pensées,
Sans rien voir au dehors, sans entendre aucun bruit,
Seul, inconnu, le dos courbé, les mains croisées,
Triste, et le jour pour moi sera comme la nuit.

Je ne regarderai ni l’or du soir qui tombe,
Ni les voiles au loin descendant vers Harfleur,
Et quand j’arriverai, je mettrai sur ta tombe
Un bouquet de houx vert et de bruyère en fleur.

— Victor Hugo, Les Contemplations, 3 septembre 18471

Even though it is quite warm in the air, the water has not had time to heat up yet. But that did not stop Alicia, who mentioned that she and her mom would take cold swims back in France during the winter.

For the second part of the photoshoot we headed indoors, and we decided to block off most of the light with a curtain and experiment with the smoke machine.
