On a journey…

I like moving. Travelling. Seeing. Observing.


And I like quiet.

At the same time…



My pictures are often depicting journeys. Most like the ones I want to embark on myself.

There’s a bigness to the spaces I’m drawn to. There’s vastness.

In this I seek to make myself irrelevant. A space where man in relation to nature get into perspective.

This is the quietness I like.

I don’t like to be quiet as in not moving but quiet in tone. Quiet which leaves room for the mind to wander.



So when asked to pack a Land Rover and depict the start of a journey and the road ahead I get excited….

Starting again

Why is it so that the New Year some how brings on a new beginning?
The tradition tells us that the sun turns, and with it, hopes for what is to come with the birth of another spring…



To me the holiday season is a very special time of year.

I moved from Norway 20 years ago. In this time the one constant connection to my family and friends in Norway is the time around Christmas and New Year.


It’s a time when I can lower my shoulders and truly relax. The only focus is being together and there’s no deadlines but for the one at dinner time.


This is when I recharge and again connect with who I truly am. I don’t expect or hold myself to anything and I, through this, allow myself to recharge and think about the things that truly matter…



So with this a new year takes shape for me and, after again connecting to my family and friends who most of the year is a worlds a way, I’m ready to take on new pictures, new beginnings and new endeavors.
That’s how, for me, it all begins again…



I wish you all one amazing 2015, coming into it with renewed energy and enthusiasm!
