Spring winter in Norrbotten
Paper mills and snow mobiles. I’m trying to present a more correct image of the north of Sweden which is not only about nature. It’s about the natural resources of Norrbotten and what we do with them.
They’re horses, not ponies
My meeting with the Icelandic horses during my visit in January and a reflection about using a camera versus using the camera that’s in my phone. Also a bit about the benefits of entering photo contests and the iPhone Photography Awards.
Sámi National Day
A wish for a Happy Sámi National day, and many more to come. With a photo I took above the arctic circle just after the midnight sun had disappeared for a short while during one of my road trips during one very special summer.
Winter at the Arctic Circle
A short “Hello” from me about my recent travels to Iceland and New York, but mostly about how life is up in the north of Sweden in the wintertime, especially Kalix where I’m based. And what you can do up here during the winter.
It’s the same moon
Another photo I’ve submitted to a photo contest, this time it’s LensCultures Art Awards. And some reflections on what photos, the moon and the sea mean to me. Furthermore, what photo editing does to me and how I can transport myself back to the moment I took the photo just by editing, or looking at…
Reindeer at midday
I did a road trip to the place I grew up in, Övertorneå in Swedish Tornedalen close to the Arctic Circle and Tornea River, where I met some reindeer. I’m doing a short summary of the culture, history and activities you can do all year round in these parts of the world.
A house full of hearts
Finding special places where you don’t expect to find them is one of my favourite things. And finding a house full of hearts and poems was very special when I was I Sagres, Portugal.
I’ve been traveling again. From Stockholm to Norrbotten, to Sagres in Algarve, Portugal and then back to Norrbotten again. My personal guide and reflections to what I liked to do in Sagres illustrated with my photos, and of course, surfing and cats.
Moose at Midnight
Some photos from my drive along Torneå River in Tornedalen last summer. And how homesickness sets in at the same time every year because summer is the best time in the arctic. And this is also where I’m from.
A blog post about my preparations as a photographer before getting into Torneträsk in Swedish Lappland and photographing Lapporten in Swedish Lapland during the summer.
