Covering US Elections

Covering US Elections

I have covered a number of US presidential elections in my carreer. It’s probably the most important event in politics, and consequently draws enormous interest worldwide. This is reflected in the media circus that surrounds the campaigns and election itself. Once you’ve been involved in covering it, it becomes part of you – and every...
"This place isn't like the rest of Romania"

“This place isn’t like the rest of Romania”

-This place isn’t like the rest of Romania, says 28 year old Irina Cozma, a manager at the corporate department of Orange, the telecom company, about the gated community in which she lives. She describes Cosmopolis as “a nice quiet place” unlike the rest of Bucharest. She has lived here for 6 years now, and...
In Arles

In Arles

The yearly photo festival Les Rencontres d’Arles has kicked off in style in the overheated town in the heart of Provence. With some 30+ exhibitions, talks, slideshows and rosé-infused night-long socializing among roman ruins and narrow alleys. The exhibitions hold a very high standard this year, and navigate on the ever more blurred line between...

Remembering Lars Tunbjörk

Remembering Lars Tunbjörk

The recent passing of Lars Tunbjörk has shaken the photographic community worldwide. Here in Scandinavia, no photographer has been unaffected by Lars’ work. To us at Moment Lars was a personal friend, mentor, inspiration and example of the power of documentary imagery originating in our Scandinavian back yard. We are all very deeply affected by...

Eivind's World

Eivind’s World

In times when everyone and their dog seem to have declared photojournalism dead in terms of making a living, it may seem a bit senseless, not to say suicidal,  to devote most of one’s time to managing a collective of photojournalists trying to do just that. It involves posing oneself (and answering your wife) the...

Observations from Grand Palais

Observations from Grand Palais

Last time I visited Paris Photo was ten years ago. The yearly art photo fair was then held in the basement of The Louvre. The past weekend I had the chance to once again venture to the old capital of photography and the new Wall Street of the art photo world. The fair itself is...

Chris Maluszynski´s images from Rockefeller Road won 2nd Prize in the category for Best...
Rockefeller Road - first publication

Rockefeller Road – first publication

It’s a bit unreal to see work you have devoted many years to in print for the first time. It feels like no publication can do justice to years spent getting to know a place and its people. My story about Rockefeller Road – the place upstate New York where John D Rockefeller was born...
NORWEGIAN PICTURE OF THE YEAR NOMINATIONS

NORWEGIAN PICTURE OF THE YEAR NOMINATIONS

Back on Rockefeller Road

Back on Rockefeller Road

It’s been almost seven years since I first drove up Michigan Hill and on to Rockefeller Road outside Richford, upstate New York. I stopped at the sign with bullet holes through it, that tells the story of the world’s richest man – John D Rockefeller being born on this spot, in the middle of nowhere....
New story: Summer Nights by Chris Maluszynski

New story: Summer Nights by Chris Maluszynski

A common trait for all Scandinavians is how our lives, habits, traditions and culture are affected by daylight and its changes with the seasons. The yearning for light and the romanticised notion of the summer night, brings life to people and places during the summer’s short nights in Scandinavia. This series is a result of...
Photographing the norwegians on constitution day

Photographing the norwegians on constitution day

Moment is photographing Norwegians celebrating Norway´s Constitution Day – May 17. In a big tent in the heart of Bergen people are invited into the Moment tent to have their picture taken. If you are in Bergen today you are most welcome to stop by.
Election Night in Chicago

Election Night in Chicago

Electing a US president is not a trivial affair. Neither is covering a presidential race - especially if you are not doing it for an influential US publication - but even then, as I have learnt from the photographers I met on the road. Those who travel with the candidates, their publications paying through the...
A new norwegian experience

A new norwegian experience

I recently attended my first norwegian wedding. Hanne and Paul had a beautiful wedding in Oslo with the wedding party at the fantastic VIlla Eckbo outside the city. In Scandinavia most people want to arrange their weddings in the summer to use the long day and bright night can be fully used for the most...
Anders Zorn and me

Anders Zorn and me

As I started looking through my images from my journey around Norway and Sweden the other day I stopped at an image that made me flash back to one of my early courses in art history. Kitch I thought. And then I remembered the image it made me think of: "Midsummer Dance", painted in 1897...
Literally end of the road

Literally end of the road

After an amazing week of being on the road and travelling some 3000 miles (or 4500km) on countless trains, a few buses and ferries, and a good deal of bike paths, I finally arrived at the end of the road - litteraly. The island where I live outside Oslo has no roads, and only a...

Reality check.

Last night me and Eivind took our bikes from Leksand to the small village Västanvik, 5km outside town. Leksand in itself looks like something a tourist board could only dream about. The winding road took us through blooming fields, along mirror-like lakes into yet another level of reality – or what it more seemed like...

The essence of Sweden

Midsummer Night, Leksand, Sweden Take all things swedish – put in a large pot. Boil for 364 days under tight lid. Wait for the sun to come out – And serve on Midsummer Night in Leksand, Sweden. -Chris

Entering Dreamland

Night train from Narvik to Gävle. Chris Maluszynski. June 2012. During the four days of my quest for the mythical Scandinavian summer night, I have only seen constant rain and cold. Not exactly living up to the ideal so to speak. Sure, the light has been beautiful, and the kids have been partying in spite of...

End of the line.

Aron Larssen running/dancing along his car on a street in Narvik. The girls are not out when it rains. So he and his friends chill. A passing freight train with ore from mines in Sweden en route to the port in Narvik. Narvik by night. After a long day of travelling that included crossing the...
