Pigment Bombs on the "Cultural Night" in Lund, Sweden

It happens every year, in September. Some 400 events all over this 100.000 people town and 50.000 people on their feet. They explore culture in terms of theatre, music, art, food, debates, happenings, what have you – and some come to see my photo gallery.
This year I conduct an experiment with my friend, working partner and master printer Anders Jönsson called “Pigment Bombs For A More Beautiful World”.

Here is a photo of Anders’ daughter Kaja in the sunset printed on a sheet of steel that has been given a yellow coating before printing.

Venezia Series

Late last night I finished a series of four abstract collages based on photos taken in Venice two weeks ago.

There contain mixes of Canon-made photos and Hipstamatic iPhone images. They are lose compositions of shots of many kinds, just reflecting my search for something “Venetian” that contrasts the usual – nowadays souvenir-kitch – image of that city.

They will be on show today at the “Cultural Night” of Lund, Sweden, where everybody is on their feet to experience culture in all its forms and shapes.
