At Vattenfall I worked as a picture editor in/with the company's picture archive, at the Image Sound and Film department, between 2008 and 2009.

My job included handling, scanning, processing, organizing and archiving the collection of photo documentation, with a great deal of individual initiatives and responsibility.

The photos in Vattenfall's historic archive are up to 100 years old, and both interesting and valuable as a source of information on Swedish cultural and industrial history.
The material stretches back from year 1991 to the founding of Vattenfall in 1909. Some of the earliest images show the most northern parts of Sweden and the very first "navvies" paving way for the hydro-electric power station of Porjus, built between 1910 and 1915. There are also pictures of the now extinct community surrounding the Messaure dam and of electrical experiments and innovations. Yet other images document the working life of employees - like scenes from the 1960's when the company's newly erected head office building in Råcksta housed 2500 members of staff.
