Retailers and Enthusiasts  

I appreciate the enthusiast and the entrepreneur. To bring forward the unique shops and their owners I portray retailers and enthusiast shopkeepers in the Stockholm area in a personal project.

During the last decades we have seen many of the smaller specialty stores being replaced by larger chains and often also moved to large shopping centers outside of the city. Some of the historical shops still remain and luckily new are created. The old and new retailers have one in common; a true interest and a deep knowledge in their specialty subject. In the project I want to show their fervor and to show the possibilities created by the entrepreneur, but also their struggles.

If you are interested in the project or have a proposal of a shopkeeper to portray, please send me a note at martin@contextphoto.com.
