In the sculptor's park, Millesgården

The photo book ”In the sculptor’s park, Millesgården” takes you for a walk through the park of the swedish sculptor Carl Milles (1875-1955), located on the island of Lidingö, outside Stockholm.

Walk around a terrace, some stairs or a fountain and you will meet statues, gardeners, tourists, flowers, bushes and trees which change constantly with the rhythm of the seasons. Employed as a gardener, I have been carrying during three years a medium format camera (Vredeborch Felica) documenting 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.
