In this image I am looking at what inspired me and made me into what I am today. There are two things that made the foundation of my creativity: the book “the red couch” and the series “Twin Peaks”. They showed me how to think outside the box. Living in a small rural town during the 80s this was mind blowing stuff..
My uncle has been an important helping hand for many years so I want to make a visual “thank you” to him by making this image of him. He is been a mechanic for over 40 years. So this old gas station and work shop was the perfect location for a lonely mechanic and his car.
This image ”Slow night” is the first of a new series which will look at what inspired me and shaped me into who I am today. Its not just artists but family, films and books. Its a process that will help me understand why I take the images that I do..hopefully. Hope you will enjoy the results…
Finally on the road again to the icy mountains and to the fjords. Looking for forgotten places.
Which we did find.
I am so happy to be part of a great gallery with very talented artists. Lumina Gallery is located in the heart of Oslo.
They will be showing some old and some new images. Opening December 4.
