My dad’s family had a large auto-repair firm in Stockholm, Sweden, and he frequently travelled down to Germany in order to attend different auto-shows and to purchase new equipment. As far as I know, this photo was taken on a train during one of these business trips somewhere in Germany.
My dad was a true sartorialist and often effortlessly elegant. In some way, this photo encompasses all the things he represents to me.
