“The observer is taken on a visual adventure ride, which at the same time is steeped in euphoria and doom. It leaves the voyeur as his motif: breathless and reflective”.
Shot a couple of 2014ish teenage girls from the country side in the old inner city Copenhagen (actually right outside my studio) on an antique 8×10″ portrait camera (anno 1913) mounted with a beautiful 1870s Dallmeyer Petzval lens. I love the detail with the man lurking in the shadows in the left side of the image.
Had a wonderful graveyard encounter recently with death metal gang Undergang (Untergang in German, Apocalypse in English), before they hit off for a long US-tour. Brought an oooooold 8×10″ large format Kodak camera and some paper negatives and commanded the band members to stand still for exactly 1 second. They did. Afterwards we drank some beers on someone’s grave. Nice.
I’m so delighted to announce that I’ve teamed up with my best friend, Daniel Madsen, the most competent dealer of photographic equipment in Denmark, and moved into the most perfect spot in old central Copenhagen, Gråbrødre Torv. We opened our shop & studio on 04 04 2014, and have big things planned. Our webshop will launch shortly, but meanwhile, do check our physical store if you’re in the Copenhagen area. And YES, we have plenty of goodies, tons of film and fantastic cameras (new as well as antique) for sale. Including the Mamiya TLR, which I shot an expired roll of Ilford Pan F Plus 50 film with today
