About the photo shoot
Mr Ledin is a rather busy man and I had been trying to get this photo shoot for more than eight months after the initial okey from him. Then, on the actual day of the shoot, we started off with a good lunch (Burgundian beef stew if I remember correctly). We talked about his latest album and the documentaries that recently been shown on television. After coffee, we went up in the room where I had I built a makeshift studio. My little portable stereo plays faintly in the background, although, this photograph was taken outside in the castle garden.
The photo shoot took place at Hesselby Castle.
