greetings from happy-land 2012 is a selection of images and text from my blog Swedepix in 2012.
It's my visual diary, my eye-exercise on a mostly daily basis. Thoughts and comments on life in New York and everything else.

I started blogging April 23rd, 2010 and had in mind of doing a weather blog, weather updates form New York. It soon became boring and since I am a photographer it developed into a photo blog.

Pretty pics, or magical realism maybe? It's my photography for the fun of it, no strings attached.

Grandma is my biggest inspiration for cooking, loved to be in her kitchen as a kid.
I dreamt of becoming a baker when growing up.

I went Culinary School in Sweden thirty years ago.
Never liked the restaurant kitchen stress though.
Twenty years ago I became a photographer.
Always loved photography but was discouraged by a job coach in my late teens.
“There are no jobs for photographers!” she said. I took her word for it.
A few years later I decided to go for it anyway.
Enrolled in photography school in Sweden. One of the teachers told me about a school in New York. I applied and got in,1993 I did a one-year program at ICP, International Center of Photography.
Love kept me in the Big Apple.

I did my dog years.
Now I make a living doing mostly wedding portraits.
My family tree is now in 3 different parts of the world.
Sweden, Spain and New York.

"happy-land" for me right now is in Manhattan, where I live, me and my hubby.
