Hans Olof P. by Foto Grafo




Foto Grafo was a studio based in Sweden and was fairly prolific in the early/mid-60s. The unknown man behind the camera had a thing for sailors (or, at least, men in sailor drag). The two best known models from the studio were Tore Lind and Per Taboldy. A hallmark of the Foto Grafo studio was that most of the photos were nudes -- remember, it was from Europe that the "nudist" craze (and magazines) came from, which would help to finally make nude images in the US legal...

The back of these two photos had the studio's address as well as the model's name stamped on it. Would any Swedish visitors know what the "P." would be short for?
