I am self-taught, prefer natural light, and to work outside. Add to that a high level of imagination, a strong passion for communicating my impressions visually, to engage with people, to travel far, and with as little equipment as possible. To me photography has been part of my work for many years, and hence closely connected to activism, expression, development and long-distance road trips in rural Africa.
What I love the most is the challenge to get something out of what may appear as an impossible situation - to turn the most ordinary parts of everyday life into something extraordinary. There is beauty in any person, and in what others left behind. It is not always about subject, but ofte more about personality, light, composition, colour, context, message, expression and graphic detalis.
I work with a Nikon 5000D and - preferably - with a 55-200 mm objective. I have experience from ex-Yugoslavia, Uganda, South Sudan, South Africa and Tanzania. From working with refugees, development workers, politicians, musicians and fashion. See examples here.
