INTRODUCING THE X-RAY GALLERY

I shot the first of these pictures back in 1999 and are working with this project now again. The pictures are mostly negatives in black & white that might look a bit like x-ray images (or negatives).. I will continously update this gallery, so stay tuned!

BACK IN COLOR

It’s been a while since I’ve been posting anything on this blog. I’ve been experimenting with new projects for a while and after a trip to Norway last week I’m ready for blogging again. The new projects are some films in the making and the continued work with my two photography exhibitions in autumn and in winter. I will update as the work with the films continues and post more about my upcoming exhibitions.

In the latest I’ve been photographing different kind of surfaces. In Sweden mostly pictures of frost on windows and in Trondheim last week I found the Nidaros Dom to be a great place to explore new graphics patterns that I can use in my art work. The Dom itself is a piece of Gothic art. Earliest parts of Cathedral was built almost 1000 years ago and what you see today is mainly built between the 13th and 14th century. It’s a wonderful experience to try to find the hidden clues of history in the walls of Nidaros. The photos were taken with the small Canon SX50 – a truly great camera for travel photography.

The eye infection

I haven’t been blogging for a while now. For the last weeks I had a real bad eye infection. And you really need your eyes for this work. But it has been real nice too discover that there are a real world outside this bubble. People actually do other things then make art all time… and they are not all nerds who are manic about their passion in life. So I guess it was healthy after all to suffer from that eye infection. But now it’s much better and I can start to work again. But I have to minimize the time I’m in front of the computer, so there might be less blogging. And right now I’m suffering from allergy… The picture of today is an old photo. I photographed this in the moonlight a cold winter night. About 15 sec. long shutter time. I used a Canon 550D (T2i) and a Samyang 14mm/2,8.

2013 in review

The WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2013 annual report for this blog.

Here’s an excerpt:

The concert hall at the Sydney Opera House holds 2,700 people. This blog was viewed about 8,200 times in 2013. If it were a concert at Sydney Opera House, it would take about 3 sold-out performances for that many people to see it.

FROZEN DRAGONFLIES

Actually it’s just frost on a window but to me it looks like frozen dragonflies or maybe fossils of the same. It’s quite amazing what kinds of shapes you can find in nature. So beautiful and sometimes so unexpected. This is what makes photography so interesting. To be able to explore the world around you and see things you never believed you would see.
