Torsdagen den 13 september var en riktig turdag för den som älskar svenska. Dagen inleddes med en vandring genom August Strindbergs alla förvandlingar. Vi vägleddes av David Almer (bl. a. redaktör, journalist, litteraturvetare och gymnasielärare) från Lund, samt Carl Forsberg (förläggare, journalist, poet m. m.) från Göteborg. Seminariet hölls på Ivan Franko universitetet i Lviv på fakulteten för Internationella relationer. Studenter som läser svenska vid universitetet medverkade.

Lokalen var full till sista stol.

Därefter bar det av till Kabinet. Här samtalade David och Carl med översättarna Natalya Ivanychuk och Lev Hrytsyuk – om Strindberg och det skandinaviska litteraturlandskapet under hans tid.

En lyckad dag som också innehöll ett besök av Leif Olsson, Tomas Tranströmers “röst”. Men mer om detta framöver.

En bokmässa betyder alltid fester, och i år hade jag förmånen att bli inbjuden till en fest som Lvivs borgmästare, Andriy Sadovyi, bjöd in till. Italienska gården, en magnifik gård vid Lvivs torg, fick husera det festglada bokmässefolket.

Folk vimlar och vinglar.

Den ukrainsk-svenska poeten Helena Tomasson framträdde utanför Idéernas Museum. Jag hoppas verkligen att Tomassons “Saga om Georgien” snart kommer ut på svenska.

And now for some more “non football during Euro 2012”-activities. At the fens to Ivan Franko Park you can find translated poetry by contemporary Polish and Ukrainian poets. I would say that Yuri Andrukhovych is among the most famous, and especially for an international audience. Among other Ukrainian names you can find Katerina Babkina and Andrei Bondar.

I am afraid that I am no good in Polish poetry, and can’t say mych about the names. But many of the pieces are very intrigues. So, to tell the truth, there are some small tasty pieces in the Euro 2012 pie.

cheese scrutinized

I like slowness. The time it take from trigger the camera shutter to the developing the film and to looking at the scans. That is why we only now, goes from April to May. This serie includes a visit to the wonderful Zhovkva and of course, Vynnynky.

And as always, thanks for the developing and scans Фотовернісаж. You are the best!

on our way

I think I love Lviv most when it is in blossom.
After a long shy winter the trees blush with flowers.
Spreadings the happiness over and in us.
Lviv goes calm and crazy in the same time.
It is like being part a magical show.
That repeats itself every year.
But without any predictability.

I am slowly catching up with time. Now we have reached April and Early May. April was a months with really switching weather. From ultra-hot to cold as in… Sweden. I prefer Ukrainian heat to Northern chill, actually. And it seems my camera do too.

And May is soon to come also to viewpoint-east
