Here on Lanzarote I now celebrate my ten years of resindency.
Already 1963 I visited the island with its local inhabitants, camels and some of the very few tourists.
I got hooked on Islas Canarias and went back many times during the years with photo models. The Islands became my outdoor studio.
Some of the pictures you find here on www.siwerohlsson.com
In many different locations and environments I have photgraphed many many beautiful models.
Outside a Bodega in La Geria, Isaac and I are tasting Lanzarote wine from one of the oldest group of wine grapes, the Malvasia.
Isaac Zizi Sananes who I have known for over 35 years is a developer and playboy. On the islands he has built over 200 houses and apartments and charmed many more women than that.
We buy fresh Cherne in Puerto del Carmen. Isaac prepares the fish and I get excited.
In Nazaret I am relaxing poolside with books e.g. Jan Törnqvists “As it really was” which among other things is about the exciting times at the magazine Fib-Aktuellt during the 60’s and 70’s.
Finally some art – César Manrique’s monument “Monumento al Campesino” and my photo “Silhoutte”, Fuerteventura.
