The Penn Pals

The amazing story about Sven Boqvist´s images, that
appeared to be lost in an attic fire over 50 years ago,
but was not, and his correspondence with the worlds
first supermodel, Lisa Fonssagrives, who like Sven was
raised in Uddevalla, and her husband Irving Penn.
Here he meets the people at the Framed Fame Studios
for the first time. It is also the start of a relationship
with Tatiana Baronova, the russian ballet dancer,
that is revealed in the follow up, Paris & Cote d’Azur.
Images from the following year, 1957 at the Cannes
Film festival.
