a few of my published pieces

Om ni kommer ihåg så var ett av mina stora mål för i år att skriva mycket mer och faktiskt publicera dessa texter. Därför till en nyhet! Förutom den här platsen så skriver jag även nu artiklar för Metro Creative. Två i veckan faktiskt, så tänkte att vi skulle ta en titt på vad jag fått publicerat på senaste tiden för det är awesome:

One of my goals for this year, that I set up in this post, was spend most of my time writing, and get these pieces published. I’m therefore happy to announce that since a few weeks back I’m hired by Metro Mode Creative to publish two articles a week on there platform. Unfortunately it is all in Swedish, but luckily we have google translate, amirite?! Above we have a travel guide to Copenhagen, six wicked female artists to follow on instagrammy fave apps for working at home, an interview with Cajsa Carlsson on how to become a freelance writer, and tips on how to land your dream internship.

babe of the month | chloe sheppard

Babe of the Month is a monthly interview series created to promote inspiring women online.

Interview-with-Chloe-Sheppard-Photographer

Chloe Sheppard is the 19 year old photographer that has taken the Internet and Lana del Rey by storm. I found her dreamy 70s style portraits of her friends one day I was deep into the maze of Instagram and was left breathless. Her photographs capture all the glamour, angst and awkwardness of being a girl in your teens. Therefore I was stoked as she agreed to have an email convo with me. We talk about why that age fascinates her, her obsession with the States and what advice she’d give to other teens out there.

 

I obviously think you rock, but for those unfamiliar with you, how would you describe yourself?

A film photographer obsessed with old American culture, records and roses.

12736929_10153535472392809_80974907_o_2048

What is it you want to communicate with your work?

Really to begin with I was just taking photos because it was something I found enjoyable and a distraction from other work I should have been doing at the time. But now I’m thinking more consciously about what I’m putting out there, I just want to be inclusive in my work. I want to shoot all types of people who have similar views and ideas to myself.

FH000019_1734   

You only shoot teen girls in quite dreamy settings, tell us about that.

I think because I’m quite close to turning 20 and no longer being a teenager, I feel like I’m losing something. Perhaps I’m more drawn to capturing teenage girls because I would have liked to have been captured in a similar way when I was that age.

 

Looking back at your journey, what advice would you have given to your 13 year old self?

It’s cliche, but probably to stop worrying what people think. And to not get so wrapped up in petty things when there is so much more to life. To never take things, or people, for granted.

Photographer-Chloe-Sheppard-Interview

I would also say that your photos and videos has quite a glamorous 70s LA feel to them. What is it with the states and/or that decade that fascinates you?

That’s always a vibe I try and incorporate into a lot of my work. I love the states. When I was younger I wasn’t so well travelled outside of the UK, but all the things I was into, like musicians etc were all from America, so I just associated it with them and thought of it as this great land. Now I’m older, just a lot of the visions I have for my work fit well with certain places over there that it just feeds my infatuation I guess.

Also a lot of the music I grew up listening to, and still listen to now, was from the 70s, so I feel attached to it in some way even though I wasn’t alive through it at all. The clothing style too, oh and the cars, I’m just in love with it all. I have so much love for America now, but I think it looked a lot nicer back then.

FH000010_1818FH000022_1818

What is the best thing about being a female photographer?

I think I get to connect with other female photographers and artists in such a special way because of it. I feel like we automatically trust each other because we understand the way we work. I’m also super shy, and the thought of directing a boy on a shoot makes me beyond nervous haha.

 

What cultural touchstones i.e. books, films, events, have been influential in shaping you and your work?

The movie Thirteen definitely influenced my aesthetic a lot as I watched it when I was very young. It’s literally one of the greatest films and carries such a good message as well as being beautifully directed. Same with the movie Dazed and Confused. I partly blame it for my obsession with the seventies. Other than that, it’s mainly music I’m inspired by. I hear songs and lyrics which either make me want to create photos/videos to match them, or to photograph the kind of person I feel would listen to the same songs you know?

FH000015_1818 room_1771

I heard that your dream came true and our all ultimate crybaby Lana del Rey followed you. Tell us about that!

Ah yeah it was crazy! I’d just got off the phone when it happened and I almost dropped my phone I was so ecstatic. I had met her in London and gave her a copy of my zine, as parts of it are so heavily influenced by her. Then the next day she followed me and I was just like… speechless.

I have tweets from when I was like a super lame 15 year old saying how I’d die if she ever followed me. I was so obsessed.

 

This feature is about highlighting inspirational women so I’d like to know who are your biggest girl crushes are and why.

Well besides the obvious one of Lana Del Rey, I l o v e Jane Birkin. She is such a beautiful person, both inside and out. I watched a video of her once and she said something like “I’ve been given such a privileged life that I feel it’s only fair I give something back” and from then on dedicated herself to helping humanitarian charities.

Also Penny Lane from Almost Famous. She lived my dream life and I still to this day wish I could be the real life version of her.

Any final advice for all aspiring kickass women out there?

Keep doing what you’re doing. Even if you think you’re getting nowhere, you’re always going somewhere. And don’t forget to keep appreciating the other kickass women around you.

babe of the month | tattoo artist tatiana kartomten

Babe of the Month is a monthly interview series created by me Linn Wiberg to promote inspiring women online.

Interview-with-Tatiana-Kartomten-Stick-and-poke-tattoo-artist

Tattoos are nothing new and not much of a controversial statement any longer. Most of us surfing the online universe tonight are probably doing so with one regrettable tattoo or two on our bodies. I for one had a friend eternally etch in a wonky Harry Potter sign with a needle and ink on my arm, 4am on a drunken night. What is new is how the world has grown to respect these ink embellishments as works of art, at least the once who deserve it. And some truly are.

Tatiana Kartomten, a badass Californian tattoo artist and illustrator, is one of those who has pioneered in making stick and poke tattoos a respectable art form. The 27 year old, originally from San Francisco, has decorated her friends’ skin for years but only started tattooing professionally last year. Since however, her success has been exponential. With several album art works for bands such as Ty Segall, an Instagram following increasing by the hundreds every day, and appointments fully booked for months ahead, the high demand for her detailed designs shows no sign of slowing down.

Well, of course I wanted to pick her bewildering brain a bit.

Tatiana-Kartomten-Stick-and-Poke-Tattoo-Artist-interview

Hi Tatiana, thanks for having a chat with me! Where are you right now and what are you up to?

Hi, I’m in bed chillin’ with Alejandro Jodowroskys ”Where the bird sings best”.

 

I obviously think you rock, but for those unfamiliar with you, could you describe yourself?

I’m from the Bay Area in California and I support being open minded and questioning everything.

 

How come you started doing illustration and then stick and poke tattoos?

I’ve always drawn since I was a kid and stick n’ pokes came about when my friends and I were hanging out getting drunk etc.

Ty Segall – ‘Slaughterhouse’ illustrated by Tatiana Kartomten

Proudest moment/project?

Doing the ‘Slaughterhouse’ cover, because it was an honor to be asked to do it and it was awesome that people actually liked it.

Tatiana-Kartomten-Stick-and-Poke-Tattoo-Artist,-interview

What’s the weirdest request you’ve received?

Haha a little stick n’ poke butt with a dick ‘n balls you could see hanging down. Unfortunately I don’t have a picture of it!

You must meet a great deal of interesting or perhaps weird characters through your job. Do you have any strange moment you could share?

My favorite was when I wasn’t tattooing but working at Wasteland in SF and we ”caught” this motorcycle cover magazine babe screwing a dude in our photo booth with our roller skates on.. so funny.

 12292778_901512193258664_660719601_n

How do you deal with assholes professionally?

Tell ’em who’s boss!

12317885_1660173114261835_342604393_n

If you got to tattoo anybody, who would you pick and what would you give them?

Hmm.. My name on my boyfriends ass.. haha just kidding.

 

What’s your best tip for getting out of a creative rut?

Smoke a joint and/or relax.

tati cactus

You’ve done illustration work and album covers for musicians like Ty Segall and mentioned that music often influences your art. What would your life and art look like if you never got to listen to music ever again?

I’d probably die or be miserable.

 

You recently reached over 45k on Instagram, congrats! Let’s say you were able to gather the entirety of your followers, what would you do with them?

Whoa that would be super scary… I only do good in really small groups where everyone knows each other well. Our brains are only supposed to get to know around 200 people or something like that. If that did happen though I would get everyone together at a huge outdoor movie theatre or something and watch ”Cowspiracy”.

Which track do you have on repeat right now?

Jack the maggot” and ”Silent sits the dustbowl” by Fuzz II

This feature is about highlighting inspirational women so I’d like to know who are your biggest girl crushes are and why!

Emily Epstein cause she’s a mega babe drummer, Ruby Quilter and Tamara Santibanez cause they are wicked tattooists, Reba Maybury cause she’s on fire! Otherwise I’m not telling who my real girl crushes are.

Any final advice for all aspiring kickass women out there?

Keep it real.

Black suede, warehouses & webb-series about break ups

Blogger-Linn-Wiberg-in-black-suede-jacket

On Sunday I looked this dangerous when it felt like London would blow off the maps because of the storm. Daniel snapped the photos outside our house just as our flatmate came home from a weekend trip. She doesn’t really know I blog so the whole thing just looked proper odd, and both Daniel and I got so nervous we didn’t care to explain.

I keep on insisting on wearing nylon socks under my jeans despite it being December, but I just like how they look, especially ripped.

Black-vintage-suede-jacket-with-fringes

Together with a cable knit cashmere jumper and my vintage suede jacket with Americana fringes at the back.

Vintage-leather-purse

And a vintage purse.

Linn-Wiberg,-November-2015

I stayed in the whole weekend, watching Mad Max and eating pomegranate in bed whilst Daniel was out getting rowdy at some dj set. Having a home again feels magical and I catch myself at work just daydreaming of getting to come home.

Daniel,-Clarence-Place,-Lower-Clapton-2015

In the mornings we walk down the street to the off license to buy tomatoes, eggs and cheetos for breakfast. Right now I hope I don’t have to leave my block for the whole of December, apart from to buy a Christmas tree and snacks.

East-London-Warehouse

This must be what parents feel, having to stop to take pictures of your baby time after time again.

Warehouse-flats,-London

The window on the right is ours, the one with the blinds down because the mornings are so bright I feel like Hades stepping out of the underground.

London-livingroom

Here’s a glimpse of our living room where we have a billion warehouse windows and a dining table made out of old wooden train tracks. As soon as we have stuffed away all of our shit and put some more things up I’ll show you photos of it all. I feel no rush at all though, for once we have all the time in the world.

On another note I star in Sandra’s latest episode of her webb series about novels and different love dilemmas. You saw some sneak peaks on my Instagram (@linnwiberg) but now it’s out. Together with Flora we discuss breakups (unfortunately only in Swedish) and you should watch it! It’s so weird to see a 90min convo be cut down to 8min but we’re pretty cute.  Click here to view the show at Sandra’s blogg.

Now going from glamorous webb series starlet *wishful thinking* back to being an intern. Work is going pretty good I think(?)! And on Thursday we’re having an office party. I’m terrified obviously.

analogue stories | Saga, July 2015

I’ve developed four rolls of film with my new Fuji DL-190. It is so exciting with analogue pictures, but I definitely want to invest in better film. Has anybody got a recommendation of fairly low priced light contrast film?

Some photos I particularly liked from this batch were a few I took of my lil sis Saga, whom I interviewed before about what it is is like being 14. Saga-in-July-2015,-StockholmSaga-14,-Stockholm-2015Saga,-Stockholm-2015

The windows were wide open, a warm summer evening breathing through it. The room was empty apart from her suitcases standing packed along the walls and the lone mattress on the floor. Just weeks before her and my parents would move back to Kenya.

As she got ready to meet her friends we talked about eyebrows and 14 year old boys sending out party invitations through Snapchat by throwing money out their parents windows. Saga tutored me in how to use the make up brushes like they say on youtube but would stop midway through to show me a new R&B track she’d found. She stood in front of the mirror shouting I LOVE MY EYEBROWS following up with a dance routine. I’m telling you, this new generation of girls will reach the stars.

Many of you who follow me on snapchat saw this in real time. If you also want to follow me my username is linn.wiberg
