From Allegro by Tomas Tranströmer

”After a black day, I play Haydn,
and feel a little warmth in my hands.
The keys are ready. Kind hammers fall.
The sound is spirited, green, and full of silence.
The sound says that freedom exists
and someone pays no tax to Caesar.”

I have looked through all portraits that Dan Hansson has made available on the Internet. They are all high quality photographs and it is no easy task to make a selection. Dan has worked on a leading Swedish newspaper since 1980, since 2013 as freelance. His work was mainly about portraying actors, musicians, authors and everything that belongs to a newspaper's culture coverage.

Many of the portraits in Dan's portofolio are of famous Swedish personalities. Although excellent I have tried to select those who are most well known internationally.


Zlatan Ibrahimović  (born 1981) is a Swedish professional footballer who recently plays as a striker for Manchester United. The greatest Swedish player of all times.
