This exclusive interview with Lalle Johnson conducted by Nicola Linza and Cristoffer Neljesjö in Stockholm August 2010

Why did you become a stylist?

Because I loved style, clothing and shape as well as photography, and in the mid-80s when I started was the height of the new Japanese and the French modern era.

I just wanted to be a part of all that!


Where do you find inspiration?

On the street, lots of cool sites, and historic things.


In your view, what make a photograph significant?

The moment, that little moment that just made it!


What Era would you have wanted to experience?

Close call between Rome at its peak, and Venice in the mid-18th century.


It is 1970, and we're meeting up at a party Luchino Visconti is having in Rome. What are you wearing? In addition, whom do we want to meet?

A tuxedo of course, chatting away with
Marcello Mastroianni, and flirting with Sophia Loren.
