A recent assignment for the Swedish magazine Veckans Affarer: John Lagerling/ Director, Android Global Partnerships at Google.

Did I mention that Google allowed the shoot inside the lobby and in front of the building only? :) Nevertheless, the subject was very cooperative and everything went well.
