So here´s a long story:
I get to meet so many cool and interesting people during my annual shows and this year was no different. On Annandag Påsk, in steps a tall, nice woman about my age. She spends quite some time looking att paintings and we chat about all kinds of things. We seem to have a lot in common! She´s a photographer. And the funny thing, she said, is that we also share the same name! Pernilla Persson. Haha, yea that´s weird kind of. And you know what else is weird, I say? Then I tell here the story that when I lived in California way back when, and I was about to build my very first website, I was stunned to find out that pernillapersson.com was already taken, which irritated me of course. That Pernilla Persson was also a photographer and she lived on the west coast of California just like me, but in San Fransisco. Weird huh?!
That´s when she sais:
-That´s me!!! Hahaha!
Ok so here´s the Pernilla from San Fransisco I always wondered about. In my gallery. In Skåne. Turns out we grew up not far from each other too!
What are the odds? And now she moved back to Sweden just like me.
Life is just strange sometimes. <3
Now hurry up go and check out the work of this wonderfully talented photographer. My brand new friend Pernilla Persson :) @ www.pernillapersson.com
