So, here we are, less than a week after the Nobel Banquet that took place i the City Hall of Stockholm.
This year we had again the honor to be the official photographers of the Nobel Foundation and photograph the Nobel Laureates of this year during the whole Nobel Week in Stockholm.

Most of people believe that this means photographing during the banquet. The truth is that the banquet is the “crown” of the festivities but,in reality, the laureates have a very busy program during their stay in Stockholm.
Our job to document photographically the week can start from the welcoming of a laureate in the VIP room of the Arlanda airport, include receptions at the Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences, the Nordiska museet and the Nobel museum, include the visit at the Nobel Foundation where often a group photo is also arranged and of course include the visit of the laureates at the Stockholm University where they meet the students at Aula Magna and give a lecture about the subject of their scientific research that was awarded with the Nobel prize. It’s a honour and pure joy to attend and photograph during the award ceremony and, later the same day, the banquet itself. But it’s also a joy to photograph the preparations of the food that will be served during the banquet, and especially the desert. Since the list of the menu is not revealed until a little before the banquet starts, it feels a little “strange” to be there in the kitchen of the Stadshuskällaren among the hordes of chefs preparing the dishes and have photos of everything already early that morning…

Since it does not feel right to show photos of the above mentioned documentations before we have delivered the photos to the Nobel Foundation, we just show some photos of the laying of the tables of this year at the Blue Hall of the City Hall of Stockholm. The amazing floral decoration was designed by Gunnar Kaj.
