Featured on Swedish blog on ways to enjoy life

They visited me around new year and spent three hours in my studio where we touched not only upon art and photography – and how I do what I do and how I get inspiration – they also took a keen interest in my work as a peace and conflict researcher just having returned from a fact-finding mission to Damascus and Aleppo in Syria.

A very joyful meeting resulting in two fine articles alas in Swedish – but you’ll get the gist.
