The chase for that special first frame

The chase for that special first frame

New camera. Nothing to it, however, a thought came to mind. First exposure could be something special. Out of the ordinary. Not just another push of the button. A camera is a vessel for light. Through the glass, sensors or film we use, an unbelievable amount of lights pass. Some of it registers and is...
The academic look

The academic look

  “At work, it has happen that other women have seen me as a threat. You know, young, thin, blonde… Maybe it’s special to work within the academics? I teach literature. It’s like you have to prove that you’re not the blonde stereotype. Prove that intelligence and rationality goes together with the looks.” Louise, 33...
Some traces from Marilyn and other commercial icons

Some traces from Marilyn and other commercial icons

The leading blonde of all times must of course be Marilyn Monroe. When mousy Norma Jean was transformed into platinum blonde sex goddess Marilyn, an unbelievably successful product was created. She was the perfect dream for all American men returning from the 1945 war, meeting women with new confidence and independence. In their absence women...
Mild color – gentle person?

Mild color – gentle person?

“I think others interpret you as a little more gentle if you’re a blonde. It’s a mild color. Dark hair is harsh.”

Pilot glasses and the recollection of time

I met Annikken and Laila at the same day in different parts of Oslo. At that point I never thought that the pictures would have anything in common. At least not until I put them together. Suddenly they started speaking to each other. It was as if the pilot glasses, those very material things, told...
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...
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.

They met at 09.42 and have spent the day together in Arvika, until Victoria leaves with the train at 21.59 the same day. They will meet again in one week.
Blond - but no blonde

Blond – but no blonde

“I’m not a blonde! To me it’s diminishing to be called that. I’m thinking of boobs and girls who do surgery and stuff. I had dark hair for a long time, but then I grew tired of looking bald every sixth week or so, when the fair hair started to grow out"
Sune Jonsson was a great photographer

Sune Jonsson was a great photographer

Most of his pictures was taking where he was raised, in the Norrbottens region the very north of Sweden. His pictures are now a very important factor in understanding how people lived during the northern swedish peasant society.

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...
The sorry brunettes

The sorry brunettes

When I was young I had long blonde hair down to my waist. Yeah, I was pretty. I just had to move my hips a little to get help with all kinds of things. I felt sorry for the brunettes! It was the 70’s, you know, they had a hell trying to pretend to be...

I kind of went from one stereotype to another there for a while”, she says with a smile as she explains why she decided to take of her veil after twelve years. “I’m still a proud Muslim. Things just happened in my life and I came to a point where I just couldn't bear all...

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...
