I have recently returned from Sweden. While I was there I went to the fantastic Photographic Museum Fotografiska situated around the waterfront with views over the old city (Gamla Stan) and the famous amusement park Grona Lund - closed at the time of my visit for the winter. One of the Swedish photographers that I really admire is Lennart Nilsson. I have seen his work exhibited in many locations - his exhibition A Child is Born was the first exhibit at the opening of Fotografiska in 2010. Really remarkable images of pre-life. Also remarkable are some of his earlier images at the very moment of birth and the vocal chords of an opera singer.
