In the limited edition series A day in the life of... photographers are portraying a day in their lives, fiction as non-fiction. The sixth publication in this monthly series is completed by Stockholm based photographer Mikael Olsson. The airy, dreamy b/w images in this publication were shot on the island of Capri. Their subject is the Villa Lysis, a mansion that was built for the French poet and writer Jacques d'Adelswärd-Fersen. After fleeing France in 1903 after being accused of "indeecency" with young boys, Count d'Adelswärd-Fersen lived in the building with his lover Nino Cesarini until his drug-related suicide in 1923.
