“Omoide” is out

My Polaroid book “Omoide” is out. If you are fascinated by Japan, you will love it. If you love the look and feel of old peel-apart Polaroid photos, you will be enchanted. If you fancy both Japan and Polaroid photography, this book will immediately be among your favorite. Contrasty, gritty and moody. Don’t miss it. (click on the cover to see preview of the…

SAKURA

Hanami days in Japan, as the beauty of cherry blossoms draws locals and tourists to the parks (March 2016). Polaroid Land Camera 250 & Fujifilm FP-3000b, if you wonder.

My new book is out: (my) Afghanistan

Some of you have reminded me a few times that it was about time to give out a new book. Well, now it’s out: (my) Afghanistan. It’s documentary work about the people of Badakshan, Afghanistan, and their daily struggle to survive not war or terror, but landslides, floods and erosion of vital agricultural soil. No grainy and gritty black & white this time (well,…

Sick & tired

That’s what I am. Sick & tired of all of this, that you may find so charming since you don’t have to live with it for 6 months a year.

Boat trip from Kvaløya (in Norwegian, “the whale island”…), near Tromsø, 16.1.2016. Thank you Stefano!

Shadow

“Time flies over us, but leaves its shadow behind” (Nathaniel Hawthorne)

Berlin, part 1 (Diana)

Tourist in Berlin for 3 days. This city turns out to be much less gray than I thought, however nothing is impossible for a Diana F+. So let there be grit and grain.. (In the next post I’ll let my Polaroid Sx-70 do more justice to the city’s colors).

Surprise! (polaroid)

Sun shines even on the coast of Norway, sometimes. Very last chances of some decent weather, these days, before an endless winter takes over. That’s why I’ll surprise you using color film, for once. Double exposure made on Paranoid Land Camera 250 & Fuji FP-100c.  

more chocolates

A few more chocolates from the 1955 box (camera).

Box of chocolate from 1955

A box camera is like a box of chocolate.. you never know what you’re gonna get. Specially when you take multiple exposures.

Salaam, Afghanistan

17th May 2014. While Norway celebrates the 200 year anniversary of their constitution, I’m heading for the remote Badakhshan, north east of Afghanistan, for the third time. There, no constitutional paper grants each and every citizen equal rights, as a base for justice and prosperity. There, natural hazards alone cost hundreds of lives every year. Just 10 days ago, a massive landslide buried half…
