Illusion

This is a picture of a picture from Huseby Slott ( castle ) from earlier this summer. Where the different images start, or end, is not really clear. But, why should it be? Go there if you are around. You will find more info through the link, however only in swedish. But I am sure that you get the picture.

vintage photo mystery

Amazingly beautiful images, but who made them? I hope we will find out. Read the full story with the link to BBC below.

A US photographer has launched an internet hunt to find two mysterious women pictured on an old roll of film she discovered in a second-hand shop.

Meagan Abell was sifting through a box of vintage photographs in Richmond, Virginia when she found four sets of “transparency slides”.

She took them home to scan them and was “shocked” at the level of detail.

“I thought ‘holy wow they are beautiful’. I’d love to find the women or the photographer who took them.”

A different view

More from BBC. IR images can make a great difference. See for yourself. A way of creating a different view. The photographers name is Terry Gold. And her photographes shine!

Where to draw the line?

Another interesting article about photography, from BBC. About the line not to cross in photojournalism. I have spent several days with colleagues at the Visa pour l’Image Perpignan, France. An international press photo festival. The discussions are very interesting. They as photo journalists have totally different standards for their jobs. Me, on the other hand, being a food and commercial photographer, I am most often expected to do images “better”. We have the same tools but different standards to follow. Stories about staged photos makes you think. We should all do that. Sometimes it is OK, but sometimes absolutely NOT. History will tell…

Please read and think. Of course this is a problem when it comes to photo contests.

Well, is it?

To me there is no question, but, not all photographs are art. So what is and what isn´t? It is up to you, and me of course. These are 2 articles from The Guardian about the subject. What would you be prepared to pay for that you couldn´t do yourself?

Torremolinos-2This is a photograph of a painting. What is art and what isn´t? Can both be, and at the same time? You tell me.

The gun was loaded’: photographers on the shots that changed their lives

This article is from The Guardian where you can find lots of interesting articles about photography.

“Some photos change the photographers life”. Not only the viewers.

ESB through binucular at WTC

These 3 images changed my life years later with 9/11, when WTC was a target for a terror attack. These 2 images above were taken from the observation deck at World Trade Center. The one closest through the binoculars there. All with a small 35 mm Minox GT.

Different Perspective

Different Perspective.

I would like to reblog this from Tommy Too since the thought is very interesting. We see different things looking at the same thing. All according to who we are and what our interests are.

I found these shapes, forms, patterns in Horten, Norway recently. Did other people also see the same things as I did?

The start of something old

IMG_0027I have just started this project that I have been thinking of for a long time. Unique, no. But I will do it my way as usual. I have been looking, searching for gloves some time and I will continue to do that. To find the interesting gloves. The ones with a history. Again I am asking, looking for the history. Who used it, when and why?

IMG_0030

Gloves are used for painting, gardening, in the garage etc etc. I find them in the streets. Sometimes. Some I have used myself. But wherever they have been used they have a story to tell.

IMG_0036

They, the gloves, are often made for a specific reason, use. To stand water, gas or just to keep your fingers clean.

IMG_0035Builders using concrete use gloves. Of course!

IMG_0033I think they are pretty!

But(t)

A good friend of mine, Rebecka Dahlén,  was running a photo gallery. During the openings cigarette butts was filling the street outside, and she didn´t like it. I understand why. So, together with a friend she came up with this idea of Don Dobbin.

“a small, fireproof and non smelling disposable pouch for cigarette stubs that can be placed directly into a pocket or into the waste bin.”

I think the idea is great and I wish they could find money for the production. The product is universal and would make a big difference for our environment. Read more on her homepage about the product that really can make a difference. And, if you can come up with an idea to start the production, or to find funds for it, I will be happy to pass the idea, or contact, along.

The cigarette industry is crazy, just look at these packages that I have photographed.  Who came up with this brilliant idea to the “Peace”package?

Pelles poster !!! Peace!_72

Pelles poster !!! Double happiness_72

Pelles poster !!! Gorbatchow_72

I remember something funny I read a long time ago. “An ashtray is something a smoker use if the room doesn´t have a floor…”. Perhaps not so funny after all.

The featured image is one I made for an exhibition at the gallery raising attention to the butt problem.
