#145 Canvas Icons

Every now and then I visit Cathedrals in the cities I pass by. I am not a religious person, but there is almost always something to shoot or discover in a Cathedral. On my last visit to the Cathedral of Linköping I ”found” some beautiful ”canvas icons”. The ”canvas icons” are part of an exibition…

#143 Close enough?

I have always liked black and white film photography. I started out with Kodak Tri-X in the 1980:s and I still shoot it from time to time. But the thing is – todays cameras and post processing can make pictures almost as good as my old black and white Tri-X pictures. Sometimes even better… Recent…

#142 Feeling free

I took a trip to the sea, the other day. I was away for work, and had som time to spare between assignments. I found this small harbour in the outer archipelago and parked the car. I was completly alone in the harbour. Just me and the sea. The wind was blowing rather strong and…

#141 Lack of motivation

Sometimes it is hard to find motivation. I have suffered from loss of motivation for my photography for a while now. I have used my camera – but the result just doesn’t seem to make me excited. They are just boring pictures. I have carried my camera around several beautiful places the last few weeks…

#136 Unique Places

Do we need go travel half way around the world to take photos of unique places? The answer is of course NO. Often the most unique place – at least to the rest of the world – is probably right outside your door. I probably made hundreds of walks around in the small village where…

#133 The Sea

There is something special about the sea. Maybe it is because I have moved away from it? I lived in Helsingborg my first 25 years – a city also called ”The Pearl of the straight” (…at least by the locals). In 1997 I moved away from the sea – and I have missed it ever…

#133 Different Light

What a difference the time of day can do to a picture! I was for a short visit to my birth town Helsingborg, and had the luck of getting a room at the hotel with the most fantastic view of the sea. As I checked in to the hotel, the sun was setting and the…

#128 The film feeling

It is always fun when a film arrives in the mailbox. The other day I got back two films – one Kodak Tri-X and one Kodak Ektar. I used to develop both film and pictures by my self back in the days of film. It was something special to see the picture develop in the…

#127 The point of a story

When we look at pictures we form our own opinions or feelings of the motive. There are some photographers that take pictures that can stand for them selves and tell a story without words. That is not the case for all of us – and certainly not in my case. Take these three pictures. Three…

#126 Inspiration by Milnor

There are a-lot of content about photography out there on the internet. I love it when I find good channels on Youtube with people that have a genuin and passionate approach to their way of doing photography. I love it even more when the channel can stay exactly that genuin and passionate over time. I…

#124 Lennart – A Swedish Photographer

Many of you may have seen the book “A child is born” – perhaps one of the most sold Photo books in the world. The book was made in the first edition back in 1965, by the Swedish photographer Lennart Nilsson (1922-2017). I remember seeing the pictures when I was younger, not thinking much about…

#121 Sometimes less is more

This is a picture from the summer of 2016 – one of the first pictures shot with my first Leica M6. We were on a summer festival in our home town Linköping. The Swedish singer Miriam Bryant were giving a concert at the big stage. People were happy – I was happy. Finally I was…
