Who is behind the uniform?

Have you ever considered thinking a thought about who the person is behind a uniform? Beside the fact that it is a man or a woman?

Please share with us your thoughts.  Are you maybe a fireman, a policeman, a military officer? Who are you in your uniform and who are you without your uniform?

Today, I have been photographing a wonderful person. A man that is not only a fireman but  of course, as we all are, a human being.

The Picture will be shown later this year, but for now you will have to be happy with a teaser.

STILL LOOKING GOOD

Still looking good

Clare is 42. Clare is a woman. Clare loves music, arts and is a dancer.
Clare has MS. She looks great. Her body gives her hard times but with the help of dance  she still looks good.

Together we want to bring more awareness. The orange MS ribbon is the symbol for this worldwide spread illness. Multiple Sclerosis. A neurological desease.

This Picture is only a small part, a teaser, of the original that we took this morning.

BLISS

A few weeks ago I put out on an international female business forum a search for people to tell their stories. Sadie from the United States of America wrote me immediately and told me all about the rollercoster she had to be together with the man of her Life. How visa, permissions, papers came across their way to be together. Month of waiting. Finally she got married to Christofer but outside of their own country, just because they were not allowed to be with regular papers in any of their country of origin. I can image that thousands of people have the same faith, especially in those days of migration. Family splitted apart. I am happy it turned all out well for them, after months of waiting.

Love won! Don’t give up to easily. Have a great week-end.

CHOOSE YOUR OWN PATH

When I was younger, I was both a punk and then a hard rock girl. I always felt I was different from the others in my class. In the teenage time I loved to have strong colours on me and stick out from the crowd. I decided already as a 2-year-old baby, that I wanted to have a motorbike. My mother let me be the person I was, even if sometimes it was not that easy. Society judged you. When I put on my leather jacket I felt invincible. Most of my friends were like that. But what the people outside didn’t know was, that we were, deep inside and under our leather clothes, very kind and gentle and we always helped others.

So I am for sure not a person that judges our young generation and other adults for what they wear or how they look.  When I met Agge in the studio I was immediately fascinated by his amazing arm tattoos.  He has lovely warm eyes and a kind personality even though the piercing and the dressing might put a few persons out of balance. (smile)

During the interview we talked and found soon that he was similar to me. He also felt different from a very young age and also always went his own way, no matter what. It is a  Lovely way of living that for sure many people don’t feel comfortable with, but I believe is more loyal to yourself.

So Agge decided to bring this into his own Picture. When you stand in the middle of Life and you have to choose, you should go your own path, and follow your instincts. Cause they are most of the time the right ones.

And of course, as usually, I tease you with a tiny part of the Picture.

CHOOSE YOU OWN PATH

 

Dancing with death

She knew since she was 20 that her Life would have been short. They predicted it to her.

In 2005 she got cancer. She accepted it. She said her time had come and decided not to do anything against it. Just live Life go her on way.

She enjoyed Life, Went on, living as it would be her last day, every day, since.

Live NOW. TODAY. You don’t know when it’s YOUR call, she says to me.

This year the doctor told her… “you have only a short time left to live” … heart problems.

She is 59. Alive. Happy and full of energy. Wise. And Death is a friend to her. She lives with Death side by side as a dancing partner through Life. Because sooner or later it is , it will be part of any of us.

LOVE IS LIFE

Sometimes it just happens. You cannot Control it. It just happens and it’s good.
Today a wonderful soul came to my studio not to be photographed but to collect Money (by Reading my hand) for a Little village in India, where women are forced into Selling their body to get food for their families.
From the moment Simran stepped into the studio I knew he would be part of Just People. We spent an hour talking about Life, religious and his Project. He was on his way out when I told him that I really wanted him to be part in my Project. He had only 15 minutes Before his next meeting and he would leave Göteborg tomorrow. So I told him. I need 5 minutes. Let’s do it.
I Think this was the quickest Picture ever taken in the Project with a simple but strong message: “Don’t forget, we are humans!”
Here is my teaser for you!

ENJOY THE BAL

To photograph collegues is always special because we are so creative. This time it was Maria’s turn.
Her message is to show how fun it is playing basket ball, how wonderful it is to dance with a ball in Life and enjoy every second of it.
