Opened up some random folders. Found this… from seven years ago… it’s a strange, sweet feeling to realise how long I’ve been doing this. Nine years of photography. Some more successful than others. Lots of searching for whatever could be my “voice”. Still searching for it. Both by looking back and looking around me in the everyday life. And once in a while I find a photo from way back which seems to connect with me. It’s hard to describe what makes it do that and explain why some photos have that ability, and not others. But that’s the big task for every photographer I guess. To take and find those photos which pops out, communicates and means something to someone. If a photo means something for only the photographer, then it has achieved something. But hopefully by sharing them they will start mean something to other people as well.

There are some things I miss about living in Norway. One of those are celebrating the national day. What I particularly like about it is that it’s popular not only among adults, but among children and youths as well. It’s not often you get to see people from all ages gathered together voluntarily, but on this day you do. When school classes, teams, organizations and unions are parading through the streets most people goes out to watch and look for people they know. Many people wear traditional folk costumes and most areas in Norway have their particular kind of costume. Besides all the parades – which is the main thing – it’s a day for school games, good food, socializing, endless cake eating and coffee drinking.

Ålgård

September 25, 2015

Now I’m posting photos simultaneously to my ongoing archive digging. Whenever I find something interesting I’m going to post it here. So, the website will finally serve a purpose which makes sense to me.

I didn’t have to dig far to find this one; only five days back when visiting my hometown Ålgård. Reflections has become something I keep looking for when I’m out shooting. I could write something deep and sophisticated about that, but it’s actually really simple: Reflections look good and they make photos more alive.

Geitungen

January 27, 2015

Idag ska jag gräva fram några bilder ur arkivet från tiden innan den här hemsidan. Jag fick i uppdrag att fotografera en släktträff på ön Geitungen i Rogaland på norska västkusten. Öns huvudattraktion är fyrtornet Geitungen fyr och har även en stor stuga som går att hyra. Det speciella med släktträffen var att vi skulle fira tre personer (40, 50 och 70 år) som tillsammans fyllde 160 år det här året, 2011. Continue Reading…

Vindauget

November 4, 2014

Det här är ett projekt jag påbörjade för att ha något vettigt att göra på bussresorna till och från skolan när jag pluggade fotografi. Projektet utvecklades snabbt till att jag även fotade på andra resor med tåg, bil och flyg. Alla bilderna är tagna ut genom fönster på resor och därför heter projektet “Vindauget” (“Fönstret”) (ersätter den gamla projekttiteln “Forlatt øyeblikk”). Continue Reading…
