Last summer my friend told me about this place, Stora Skuggan. He told me every Sunday people come here and dance Lindy Hop. I thought maybe I should check it out. If anything, it was a good opportunity to take some photographs. Little did I know, I experienced something almost magical. That Sunday there was a live band playing. I later found out that this never happened before for as long as they’ve been dancing here. There’s normally just a DJ there, so I really got my self a treat!
I really enjoyed the positive atmosphere, so I decided to come back and come back again on that summer of 2014. Within a few Sundays I felt the need to create a small project. On the last Sunday of the season at Stora Skuggan I had a small one-day-exibition. Just saying thanks and giving something back.
