Millesgården, in the sculptor's park
The photo book ”In the sculptor’s park, Millesgården” takes you for a walk through the sculpture park in the grounds of the house formerly belonging to Swedish sculptor Carl Milles (1875-1955), located on the island of Lidingö, outside Stockholm.
As you walk around the gardens with their terraces, steps and fountains you will encounter not only statues, but gardeners, tourists, flowers, bushes and trees, all of which reflect the constantly changing rhythm of the seasons. During the three years I was employed at Millesgården as a gardener, I carried with me a medium-format camera (Vredeborch Felica), and documented the everyday life in the park.
The book contains a foreword by the Swedish writer Agneta Pleijel and a presentation by Laurent Denimal (texts in Swedish, French and English). It is designed by Johannes Molin and edited by Carlsson Bokförlag in Stockholm.
You can read an article about the book written by Stefan Nilson (Nerikes Allehanda).
The Swedish magazine Balder published Agneta Pleijels foreword and a few photographs in the issue 4/2008.
The artist's edition contains twenty autographed copies of the book presented in a black slipcase with one numbered and signed original print (silver gelatine and C-print), with a size of 18 x 18 cm. There are four different motiv.
