Hey all! Today I’d like to spread the word on Girls/Boys on film magazine. Girls/Boys on film is a photography zine, showcasing portraits shot on film. Founder is Igor Termenon, a photographer living and working in the UK. The images featured are often simple, beautiful portraits with lots of atmospherical qualities. A true pleasure to flip through, in paper or online.
The past year I’ve been obsessing over, well, pretty much everything Swedish, so I thought I’d make another post on a Scandinavian artist.
MALIN GABRIELLA NORDIN is a Swedish artist currently based in Norway. Her work consists of paintings and collages as well as three dimensional pieces.
I am simply in love with her use of texture and color and – truth be told – the way her works are presented and photographed. Her works make me happy and I’m all for spreading happiness, so enjoy!
Today I’m taking the liberty of posting one of my own projects.
Last summer I started a collaboration with dutch photographer Ananda Serné, called Ante. The collaboration started as an experiment, but as we went on we noticed how complimentary our working methods were so we decided to go on with it.
In ‘Visual poetry’ we try to look for the definition and boundaries of poetry and translate them into visual structures. The images should appeal to viewers without them really knowing why. It’s about unwritten rules and visual attraction.
‘Obstacles’ is a new series that started with our mutual interest in strange body postures. We both like to observe striking day-to-day actions and the way the body deals with obstacles. We ask people to repeat those actions in a simplified environment and focus on the tension created between different bodies and/or objects.
We are working on a website and hope to see you there soon!
I would like to start my week of blogging by showing you the work of two of my favourite Swedish photographers: Thobias Fäldt and Klara Källström.
Not only do I admire their work, they also took me in after a very awkward couchsurfing incident (think twice before you send a request, people!), introduced me to their friends and made me a wonderful breakfast. Awkwardness compensated to the max and a very happy me!
Klara and Thobias form the constellation KK+TF and publish their own books under B-B-B-Books. This gives them the possibility to produce unique pieces that are so much more than photobooks alone.
We are happy to present Charlotte Boeyden as our guest-blogger for the upcoming seven days. Charlotte, born 1989 in Brugge, Belgium, got fascinated by photography while studying interior architecture. This fascination kept on growing, so she finally decided to switch and study photography, what she is doing at the Royal Academy of Fine Arts in Antwerp. She is freelancing for several institutions, such as Bozar, a Centre of Fine Arts in Brussels, and has published to zines. We are happy to have her and say: Welcome, Charlotte!

So I think it’s time now to show some of my own work.
This B&W series is still an ongoing project. I run around with my camera at night in Berlin clubs mostly at Burlesque and Swing events. I like to captutre the audience as well as the performer, you can see more of that on my web page!
Hi, these are 3 drawings from my friend Nico Brodersen. She also lives in Berlin.
Besides drawings she also does lithographic prints and photoengravings. I like that cause its working with your hands and with stones and really heavy materials and chemicals (it reminds me a little bit of working in the darkroom…). The printing work is more heavy and dense than her drawings – You can see more of her work here: www.nicobrodersen.com
