My first darkroom


Perhaps the best way to learn photography is the least glamourous way?

Folken, Stavanger, some time between 2008 and 2012. Doesn't really matter when, nothing changed while I was there. The sink was clogged the entire time...

Enjoy the silence


Frysja, Oslo, march 2014

Over the winter city








  





Have you been?
Have done will travel
I fell down on me knees
...
I've been high
I've climbed so high
The light, sometimes it washes over me.



Oslo, Norway, january and february 2014. Views from the windows of my everyday life. 

(Words by Michael Stipe, "I've Been High" from "Reveal" (2001))

Last dance, last shot



Kaizers Orchestra, Sentrum Scene, Oslo, 30th august 2013

This is the last frame I shot of Kaizers Orchestra. There have been many pictures since I saw them first in 2008, and this concert was probably the last one for a long while. They did get a little too whimpy and over-romantic on the last albums, but I'll miss them anyways...

Mos Def






Yasiin Bey aka. Mos Def performing in Betong, Chateu Neuf, Oslo, october 2013.


PS: I can't help it: I watched the 2005 version of Hithhikers Guide to the Galaxy before turning fan and reading the Douglas Adams books twice. Mos Def in the role of Ford Prefect was singed into my mind when reading the books, so I can't help but think I met the actual Ford Prefect yesterday. He is now a loony hip-hop artist touring the little world of earth. It all makes sence. (Where can I get my Pan-Galactic Gargle Blaster?)
