Bengt H. Malmqvist - Stjärnornas fotograf
(Bengt H. Malmqvist - The Stars' Photographer)
Kenneth Ahlborn & Urban Nilmander
A beautiful coffetable book about the legendary Swedish photographer
Bengt H Malmqvist.
It was he - "the King of the record sleeves" - that took backstage photos of Miles Davis and John Coltrane at the Stockholm Concerthall, the first Swedish rockers in 1957 - 1958 , the Queens of popular music Lill-Babs, Siw Malmkvist and Ann-Louise Hansson, the teenage beat idols Tages, Shanes and Mascots, and also Cornelis Vreeswijk, Fred Åkerström, Robban Broberg, Peps Persson, Pugh Rogefeldt, ABBA, Eva Dahlgren, Noice, Roxette and many, many more until the 1990's.
The about 200 artist portraits in this book had to fullfill three
qualites to be chosen; the expressiveness of the photo, the spirit of age
and the artist's significance.
8 colour postcards, exclusive for the book, are included.
First published Sweden 1998
Includes a chapter on ABBA.
