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.
Vegan fair in Göteborg end of 2015. I walk in a hall full of people. I hold my hand to my husband, we taste delicious food, vegan, Health friendly food, ecofriendly and we are happy to see that more people are following and living in a more healthy way. Then suddenly I see a wonderful couple with long rasta hair. They seem so in love and I can’t just let them pass me by. I have to ask them. I have to tell them. So I go straight forward and I say my name and that I would love to have them in my photoproject.
Today we created together a wonderful caring picture. The picture is not fully finished yet and I want to keep it for the book to come. But I tease you with a tiny part of it.
The title “Take care of eachother” is a message to all of us, to take care of the wonderful body we have got to live our Life. To worship our relations and be there with a helping hend for people in need.
From today until Sunday the 14th of June in the town where I live, Gothenburg, we celebrate Westpride :-). We, in the team Just People are proud :-). One of the first pictures I photographed for the project had a wonderful HBTQ couple involved, Karin & Bernie. To show our support to Westpride we would like to share this picture .

Ing Marie saw one of my lectures at the Swedish Church earlier this Spring and came to me afterwards with the desire to be part of the project. We talked together and after her story we decided that we wanted to take a generation picture. Mother and daughter lived a part so many years from eachother, missing eachother so much. Finally destiny brought them together again in the same town, in the same country. And when Sofia got her baby happiness was completely for grand-mother Ing Marie.
This Picture is only a teaser but it show anyway the love, happiness and longing in their Eyes.
sorry for the long silence. I just ended up in the hospital for a Little while and are recovering now. Meanwhile film director Marita is clipping the film that we shooted a month ago. Long hours in front of the computer. But it will turn out great.
I also photographed a brand new Picture for the Project “The Soulmates”. A wonderful couple that are passionate with tango. So as you know this is just a teaser.
I am not laying on the lazy side right now. Today’s photoshoot was indeed a very funny experience. To try to recreate a windy rainy night on the sea and show the love of Jon-Erik to a sailing boat. He is truly passionate about water, sea and sailing boats.
I am going to tease you today with a tiny part of the Picture first.
Jon-Erik who I met a few years ago during a photowalk in town remembers our first encounter as…. “I had a city map in the pocket of my jeans and you photographed that” ….. “Oh” – I replied “Great start I photographed your butt, really?” so we had a good laugh recalling that first meeting.
Woman – man / Woman – Woman / Man – Man
Who can judge what is right or wrong?
Isn’t love that matters?
I am so proud of this two wonderful human beings that against all odds found eachother and openly show their love to the world.
Because it’s “Ecce Anima”!
