“The magic attraction to photography has been there all my life. To see and make pictures of the seen is inseparably connected with my life long search for seeing and understanding the multitude and meaning of life.
Curiously keeping an open eye to the fact that reality is not something definitive. Seeing and understanding the complexity in the simple and the simplicity in the complex that is what continuously drives me in my artworks.
I photograph mostly in my near vicinity and explore the differences in photographic expression that lie in different cameras. I photograph on film – small format and medium format, with pinhole- plastic- and Polaroid cameras – and I photograph digitally.
Lately I’ve been experimenting with finding a photographic and artistic language with the iPhone. I’m fascinated by the almost instamatic way of photography. I can photograph everywhere and I have my editorial apps right at hand.
With my exhibition at Galleri Nybro (June 2012) “Pixels at an exhibition” I try to add new dimensions to the concept of landscape photography by showing both a series of landscapes from Iceland and a collection of serial landscapes in B/W photographed with iPhone.”
