New Art and Photo Exhibition at Riddargatan 
October 17 - November 19

Freddie Wadling was the punker who became one of Sweden's most popular musicians. What few know is that he was also an artist who basically drew, sketched and painted every day until his passing.

In the new book "My Head is a Crowded Room", childhood friend Lars Sundestrand has collected over 500 of Freddie's works and he has also sought out his own photographs from their time together in Gothenburg.

Some of these art pieces and photos will decorate the walls of Ling Long Restaurant at Story Hotel Riddargatan at the new exhibition that are opening on October 17. 

Welcome to the Art of Story!

Black and white photos of Swedish artist Robyn and band Johnossi
Photo Art exhibition at the hotel

A new exhibition of amazing black and white photo art are currently on display in the corridors of each floor at Story Hotel Riddargatan. 

Among the photos you find Swedish popstar Robyn and band Johnossi. 

Fun fact: The photo of Johnossi is taken at an actual visit at the dentist and the tooth is singer John´s actual wisdom tooth in the plier. 

About the photographer:

Johan Bergmark is a rock‘n’roll photographer with tinnitus and a fondness for people. Johan works with both film and digital photography, using a medium format camera and black-and-white film. His preferred companion when working is chance. The chance factor features prominently when working with film. It is when something goes “wrong” that something special happens. He prefers black-and-white images over colour because there is less to “distract”. The viewer discovers the focal point of the image more quickly.
