At the Berlin Holocaust Memorial

The first time I visited the Holocaust Memorial in Berlin, passing through the rows of concrete blocks, I saw this girl sitting on the ground. I snapped a picture just by reflex. Turning around again she was gone. It was a strong symbolic experience for me. Later when I saw the image on the computer screen I saw the figure in the end of the row, the feeling got even stronger. I so wish people could live in peace, I so wish we all could show each other love instead of hate. We need a girl to remind us each day what happens if we don’t.


Emma Svensson to Fotografiska Wall of Fame

I had the honour of doing the portrait of the highly successful photographer Emma Svensson, for Fotografiska Wall of Fame. Emma started off photographing at rock concerts. She built a successful company around that. Became blogger at Elle. Moved on to be a leading fashion photographer and now has her own major studio with employees. She also started her on series of workshops. Now she’s climbing the highest mountains in every European country, that’s 49 peaks in one year. She’s got a lot of energy I have to say and she’s a role model for young photographers. I can’t wait to hear what will be her next project!

DFF KickOff 16

The fog lay heavy  that day in March. I was invited to do four workshops in one day at the Dansk Fotografisk Forening – DFF KickOff 16 – held at Hotel Storebælt, Nyborg, Denmark (2016). At arrival I went out in the fog to get a shot of Storebælt, only to run into my friend the Norwegian photographer Jens Haugen. The scene was really out of a film with this figure emerging out of the mist. I got a nice portrait of him by the tree.

At the workshop I had good help of the excellent Ib Thordal of Fujifilm Nordic and the amazing Danish photographer Klaus Bo. In the shot Klaus looks like a character out of Star Trek. A part of the workshop was about LED lights so both these images are shot with different LED’s.

The image of Jens Haugen was shot on Fujifilm X-Pro2 and Fujinon XF 23mm F2 R WR with a Aputure Amaran AL-M9.

The image of Klaus Bo was shot on Fujifilm X-Pro2 and Fujinon XF 34mm F1.4 R with a Westcott Ice Light 2 and a Amaran AL-528
