Caroline HENDERSON 2004

In the late 1950s a young Scandinavian beauty queen was elected Miss Lucia in Stockholm. The young woman was Caroline Henderson’s mother. Only a few years later, she offered her nice, traditional upper middleclass family the ultimate of provocations by becoming pregnant with Caroline’s father Rudy, a black American jazz musician, who had a way with women. And so, in 1962 Caroline was born in happy ignorance into a world of political instability…

Half a life separates the 17-year old Caroline who walked on stage in Stockholm, and the mature artist now releasing “Made In Europe”.
