Ulla Andesong

Welcome to my world of many colors!!! Thank you for checking in!!!

I had decided that I was never going to touch a digital button! I wanted to stay old fashioned !
–  No mobile phones or computers!!! But…

6 years ago my mom gave me my first computer for christmas- Just two weeks later she left us- And there I sat -obsessed on listening  to MY SPACE for a year straight- as music is one of my passions.

My mom had always wanted to give me a camera- since my first Nikon was stolen from me in -88, and it broke my heart! -It was given to me by Samy Davis Jr in -69 and I was so proud of it.
I didn’t want to accept a camera from her, but then she left me some money and I thought that- it was meant -that I should get myself a digital one to go with the computer!So for the last 5 years I have photographed every single tree every stone and every leaf in my neighborhood  on my doggy walks -as well as I’ve terrorized all my friends and neighbors like the worst kind of  ‘Mamma Razzi”.
I have also learnt to scan old negatives and to restore old photos- that were all taken with the cheapest ‘ Instamatic’ camera.
And I  finally I had my first exhibition in August!
With photos from my all my different lives and passions from the 60’s up to date….
And here are some photos and comments from that exhibition….

“There’s absolutely NO exhibition in Stockholm that beats Ulla Andesongs exhibition. OBSERVE- It’s only open today and tomorrow!
Two rooms -compleetly in her own style- with photos, photos, photos and more photos…mixed with pillows and chests (filled with photos),…. small and big pieces of cardboards with messages written on them…and of course ULLA HERSELF that shows you around  her own photos of Kungsholmen and photos of celebrities……and inspires…..(influences you)  in a positive way- And here you won’t find small framed photos hanging in a row -Here you’ll find an organized (?!) wonderful chaos.
You will get a total experience like you’ve never had…and when you sit down outside in the sofa in the nicely arranged corner  ..and wonder ‘what just happened to you’…
then you will be offered blue berries!!!
GO THERE…”
