Lund, Sweden – March 28, 2015

I shoot  out a single photo to you as gift.

This is “Ahmed And The Fish” taken in Baghdad in January 2003, two month before the war began. I wonder whether he is still alive and, if so, how his life is. More about it here.

I’m happily surprised that so many have written to thank me for the earlier shoots and often with very kind words. Many also share them. Thanks a lot!

Soon to come…

1. I’m working day and night on my next exhibition parallel to the Easter Art Fair – “Konstrundan” – her in Skane in southern Sweden. Its theme is “People of Islam – Images from Iraq, Iran, Morocco and Somaliland.”

It’s my tiny contribution to bridge-building and respect between our cultures. Opens next Friday April 3. Welcome!

2. My PhotoArtually Newsletter with lots of news about photography and other art.

3. Something about Iranian art; I was in Tehran in December last year.

And soon another shoot or two.

My best & enjoy your weekend!

Shooting images in Marrakech, Morocco

What an exciting place! Eldorado for photographers and lovers of art, history, colours, mild and hospitable people – and lots of features of Islamic culture and art.

Marrakech – there are so many “must see” places and even more milieus to explore on your own, without a guidebook. There are new sights, surprises and motives around virtually every corner – a day with a camera is intensive indeed.

And of course you should stay inside the old town, in the Medina where alleys are so narrow that only a donkey cart (and some very noisy mopeds) can get through. It’s labyrinthine and you’ll love it when you get lost.

The light is fabulous here; there are no end to Continue reading

Lund, Sweden – March 5, 2015

After two silent months, I shoo out a single photo to you as a gift, a tiny break in your busy day.

This wall was shot at sunset recently in Marrakech, Morocco. Marrakech is an eldorado of photo opportunities and plans to be a future world centre of photography. It’s an ideal place to experience the rich history, architecture, arts and crafts of both Berber and Arab culture. And very friendly and welcoming too…
