The “Victoria And Albert Multi-Exposure” Series

A series of five of a bust at the Victoria and Alberg Museum, experimenting with multi-exposure in order to achieve a sense of movement. I mean, how does one make marble sculptures come alive on a rainy Sunday afternoon in London? Additionally, this short video is an example of what I am going to use more often in the future, both here on my … Read More The “Victoria And Albert Multi-Exposure” Series

Video “Abstract Real”

This video offers glimpses of the works I exhibited in my studio in 2016 – an exploration of abstract photography: What is real? What is abstract? And how do the two mix…blur? All the works started out with a photography and successively changed in the process to become “abstract”. I find that fascinating since photography has almost always been about taking pictures of what is, … Read More Video “Abstract Real”

The “Rouen Cathedral Suite” on video

In autumn 2015 I worked on a series of the Rouen Cathedral, inspired of course by Monet’s original paintings in the 1890s and Roy Lichtenstein’s 6-piece series from 1969 which I happen to own. Heres a post about the idea behind it. And below is a 1.30 min video.

The Rouen Cathedral Suite

It’s all about seeing, isn’t it? Having lived with art since I was a child, I’ve always played with the idea of doing photography with reference to the art I cherish. Since 1969, I have looked at Roy Lichtenstein’s 6-piece Cathedral Series from that year which were based on Claude Monet’s Rouen Cathedral paintings in the 1890s. This is about my latest edition, the Rouen … Read More The Rouen Cathedral Suite

Creating “People Of Islam” and why the Iraq War made me a photographer

I opened this exhibition with the subtitle – Photos From Iran, Iraq, Somaliland and Marrakech – on April 3, 2015. It has come about in a quite natural way. I have worked in some countries where Islam is of fundamental importance and so been exposed to the people living there as well as their problems – problems related to conflicts and war. I did fact-finding … Read More Creating “People Of Islam” and why the Iraq War made me a photographer
