Assignment for Swedish Dagens Nyheter featuring Lucy, a whistleblower in the well-known scandal of an instructor who sexually abused children at a Hästgården (riding school) in Stockholm.
A podcast from SR (Sweden’s Radio) called ‘Hästgården’ won the Swedish Journalism Prize in 2018, which unravelled the events that took place at the riding school and the fallout that followed. The Swedish TV series called ‘Nattryddarna’ (Riding in Darkness) is based on the SR podcast.
The background had to be emphasised to carry the narrative of countryside and horse riding. I sourced a location that would reflect Lucy and her story.
