Trading places with Edvard Munch

Trading places with Edvard Munch

It is hard to describe the surreal feeling it is, watching the images of Edvard Munch being removed from the walls. Your own images scattered across the room to get the correct sequence and replace this great master.

Dreams of Dhaka - boredom gone highbrow

Dreams of Dhaka – boredom gone highbrow

Three years ago, almost to the date I was bored with photography. After wrapping up assignments in Qatar and Dubai the mattress on the floor of my shared apartment in Dhaka was a sanctuary.  Pounding traffic outside, millions and millions of people everywhere. A wonderful place to hide and an exotic place to shoot images,...

An idea of summer

An idea of summer

Since I left home two weeks ago, there are a couple of cities I have tried to reach. First it was Stockholm and I missed it due to impulse, then it was Bergen who suffered the same destiny before Kristiansand came up as the holy grail of travel. It was an idea of summer and...

Here I am

Here I am

I have travelled in Norway full time the last year working on my project 'You Are Here,' a subjective exploration of home. It has also been a road trip, but a road trip of a more conventional type; by car. For the past week it has been a liberation with the limitation of public transport...
