ABOUT THE EDITION
About the edition "Midsummer”
"Midsummer is the longest day of the year when the arctic summernight is crowned by a never setting sun. From now the days are getting shorter and the winter is getting closer. It is a time for celebration when nature is at it´s´fullest bloom, and animal and man go crazy. I have tributed this edition to death and destruction, life and explosion. This is an edition full of skulls and mythological beings contrasting colours and movement. Härlig midsommar."
