Photo Book Fair 2023.



Have you ever dreamed of meeting

French gardener and photographer, Laurent Denimal,

who has lived in Sweden for three decades,

and who has contributed, among other things,

three very beautiful books of photographs

on three of the most emblematic parks and excursion spots in Stockholm?







I will be present during the two days devoted by SSF

to the Photography Book Fair in Stockholm,

on October 27 and 28,

where the latest book, Gröna Lund, will be presented.

This will be a unique opportunity to see the three works relating to these green spaces brought together on the same table; Gröna Lund, Djurgården and Millesgården, and to be able to discuss with the photographer his original working method and also about the stages that were followed from the inception of the project to the final production of the book.






Gröna Lund (LDP, 2022), foreword Laurent Denimal.


While working as a gardener at Stockholm's Gröna Lund tivoli, I carried a wooden pinhole panorama camera loaded with 35-mm film around with me.

An artist's edition of fifteen autographed copies is presented in a slipcase with one numbered and signed colour print.

Djurgården, in the King's Park (Carlssons, 2014), foreword Per Wästberg.

Djurgården, which once upon a time was the royal deer park in Stockholm, is today the world's first national city park. It forms a green oasis just across the water from the city centre. I spent a season working in the park as a gardener, and had my Polaroid camera with me every day.

Polaroid photography provides unique, small-format images without a negative, limited to a single original photograph. The book "In the King's Park" presents a selection of motifs that were caught in an instant.

Millesgården, in the Sculptor's Park (Carlssons, 2008), foreword Agneta Pleijel.


The photo book Millesgården, in the Sculptor's Park 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.

An artist's edition is presented in a black slipcase with one numbered and signed original print.
