Per shares with us something a little bit different from what we are used to. A very interesting project. Check it out.

This project is totally different from what I’ve done this far. I’m a freelancephotographer with a background as a photojournalist/pressphotographer. In my personal photography I work mostly with documentary projects and streetphotography. The latter is something I did already in the 80’s, when few even knew of that art.
All this is shown on my website, .



This project also have a story to it. Or several.
– First the main thing, scanning and coloring of these dried plants.

– Then as a document over a schooltradition within biologiteaching, having the students producing these herbariums over their summerholidays. In sweden this ended during the 50’s and 60’s.

– Then finally there’s the story of the girl that made this herbarium. Anne-Marie Petersson, Alafors – that’s all information that came with the album. A name and a place. Slowly, and with help from a lot of other persons, I’m discovering who she was. That’s a story that is still in it’s beginning.



That’s just about all there’s to tell. But please feel free to ask any questions you have.

Yours P-O Stoltz

    Glad to see a piece on tabletop photography. I will venture a guess. The specimens were laid down on a shooting table and illuminated from underneath the table.
