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...

Åsa Sjöström in Moldova

Åsa Sjöström in Moldova

I´m back in Moldova , this time with reporter Sara Assarsson. The last time I was here was in January 2006 when I had spent a total of three months in Moldova 2005-2006. I do not know why I continue to go back here. But I guess you get some sort of preference to certain...
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....
The difficulty to be a Muzungu

The difficulty to be a Muzungu

Having just returned from a reportage trip to Uganda, I think about how I once again have encountered the challenge I have faced during several visits to Africa. It can be very difficult to be a fly on the wall, no matter how much I try to be a part of everyday life in the...

Motor culture

Motor culture

I often end up in documenting motor culture and animals. I'm not interested in any of the two subjects significantly. On my visit to the north I shot both "folkrace" and snow scooter driving on the water. Why ? I don't know…

Going through my archive…

I have received my negatives from my trip but have had no chance to scan them, so I will continue to show pictures taken digitally for getting the exposure right.

I met an old friend in a sort-of-new tuxedo. Martin is using this formal evening wear as a motivator for loosing weight and getting in shape after his heart attacks.
The other side

The other side

My first stop on the trip was Gällivare, was a bit tired after spending the night in sleeping accommodation with 5 others. While there I was welcomed with rain and cold wind from the mountains. I walked around in the community to get some impressions and inspiration. I was surprised there were so many people...

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...

Depostcardification

I have been to Trøndelag for a few days. I got some Inderøy sodd – the ultimate local dish in the Innherred area. Not too many pictures taken, probably because this is home and too nice in many ways. The whole region is a massive postcard. Therefore I am grateful to this fellow who unknowingly...

A break at Grandma’s to get some perspective

I have reached the final destination on my route, Gävle, and am happily reunited with my little son. His father has a gig with his band Deportees at the Peace and Love festival in Borlänge tonight, so my mom brought him to me. We met at Arlanda train station and went together to my grandma...
A Jens Hauge Moment

A Jens Hauge Moment

I took the bus from Nordby to Halden. As I photographed the landscapes along the road and the reflections in the windows I realized that this looks very much like Norwegian photographer Jens Hauge's latest project where all the 324 pictures are taken from the bus.
