A few years ago I asked Fernando who had a lovely lunch place just around the corner of my studio, if he wanted to be part of my Project. I knew he was a good chef but he also has a special passion for knives. So it became pretty much easy to figure out which kind of pictures we wanted to do.
I wish you a wonderful week-end. Please feel free to come to my next photoexhibition to see more of the Project.
Last week I have started working on the exhibition that will be held in Hjo-Sweden at the end of May this year. The contract is signed and now I am working on the texts and the new pictures ment to this partly new exhibition. I will continue update you with informations.
Today’s photograph will be part of it. It’s called MUSICAL TIMELINE and it shows Karl that is one with the Music. Music has been there since his childhood. Come and read his own text at the exhibition.
My exhibition in Rimforsa, at Neva Books ( www.nevabooks.com ) is ongoing until 31st of May and I heard from the gallery that a lot of people have been visiting it. That makes me really happy. There you can see the original Picture “FEARLESS” with attached story.
2 new photo exhibitions soon. One during the summer time and one in October. So stay tuned and you will get more information as soon as we have all the time and dates fixed.
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.
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.
The time is “NOW”, not Before and not after. We are living in a NOW moment. Nothing new for most of us, but still we tend to forget to live at this very moment.
One of the first pictures taken for Just People was of Alf. Alf knows how to enjoy Life by living NOW. He started building “NOW” Clocks to remind people to stop where they are and enjoy the moment they live in. This is the only time existing.
In the North of Europe people tend to like to go to sauna. Finnish people though, they love sauna. When I first got in contact with Jani on Facebook more then a year ago, we started thinking about what would suit him best for the project. What does Jani love to do and why? Today finally we met personally in the studio and we took our Picture. Jani told me that for him going to the sauna is like escaping the World, findind a quiet place where he just can be, where the brain shuts off and he just is…. I tease you with this part of the Picture.
