Last year I discovered the work of danish artist Adam Jeppesen. Seeing his work in front of me at an exhibition in Stockholm, I fell for the experience of the photographs and how I was drawn into the landscape. In the project called “The Flatlands Camp ” he recorded his journey from the Arctic through North and South America to Antarctica. For 487 days he travelled in solitude and from this long journey a series of melancholic, evocative landscape pictures emerged. Jeppesen printed large photographs using a xerox copier, then pinning the many sheets in their frames, as a part of the picture. This gives the photographs another dimension and experience.
Hi! I will start introducing myself by posting some of my recent work. It´s an ongoing project that started maybe long time ago, but when I attended the Atelier Smedsby (one year workshop) with JH Engström and Margot Wallard in Paris last year, the work started to refine and take shape.
When I photograph I try not to think about rules in photography, I shoot intuitivly and by heart, to capture a feeling through noticing fragmentary moments in everyday life.

With the show of the Antwerp Fashion Academy coming up, I’m planning to do some fashion shoots in the coming weeks. So I thought it would be nice to show some fashion photos of Spanish photographer Wai Lin Tse that I really like. The easy, everyday gestures make the images work so well.
Lin is a former fashion designer herself and is now dedicated to photography. I was lucky enough to meet her on a wonderful midsummer day at a place called Sundtorp, a place she also photographed for the second issue of Apartamento magazine.
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.
