..on youtube there are Guiliana and Mehldau

When having this group of photos and together they imply and implying can be just right but this time it isn’t and staring at them for long and less long it becomes obvious that the pieces aren’t falling anywhere near their intended spots but on youtube there are Guiliana and Mehldau to take the attention away, it wasn’t being helpful to begin with, at all, not at all.

Frames: Svartefjorden

I’m in this valley twice a week, if not more. Normally wearing running shoes, sometimes accompanied by a borrowed dog. It has become a place of significance. So has dog, significant. One photograph doesn’t describe it, the valley. Of course it doesn’t but then, of course it does, only to a very limited extent. Also, now would be a good time to ask; why describe it, but that’s a digression, for another time perhaps. It […]

Misery called, he would like to have his colours back

I honestly have no idea how the image above of the rooftops through the trees appears to others, who might have seen it, by coincidence or not. How could I? I just know that it brings back memories of one of my least elegant periods to date. Don’t think miserable would be an overstatement. Some ok photographs happened though, during the misery, at least they feel right somehow. Almost as if they are tangible, carry […]

Panny, my lightmeter.

Today the Panny was my lightmeter.

Observation: The 15mm Panny in a vertical position has a horizontal field of view not so unlike the 75mm on the Pentax, horizontally. Then, to imitate the comp while the film awaits processing, all I need to do is crop a 5×4 out of the vertical frame. Why? Well, and this is a bad answer, the film hasn’t been processed. As for metering light like this, it remains to be seen how the expired–for–more–than–a–decade–ago Astia […]

Stykkishólmur*

In 2015 my family and I visited Stykkishólmur. I took some photographs. They didn’t turn out any good but one way or the other the place stuck with me. During the time between now and then, the images have somehow confirmed what seems to be the core of my photography; to provide comments on this and that, perspectives, answers perhaps, to questions that didn’t get asked at the time, questions that hadn’t yet reached the […]

Six months, six images

November already? Well.. Some of the six months since last time have been quite dry, in terms of lens based activities. Also, my favorite images these days are eight years old and not the ones that have appeared lately and since this is about recents I’ve adjusted the tag. And this was a terrible sentence. And here’s a new years resolution, if a tad early. If nothing worth saying to say, shut up. Now may […]

I know.. No, strike that. I have an idea about what I’m looking at. And I do wonder what you are seeing. Then there is the underlying element that if I communicate what I’m looking at it will influence what you see. And as much as I’d rather not—influence—there really isn’t any way around it, is there? In 2011 I started photographing places where people live, from afar. I called them Homes, the images. Here […]
