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.

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 past thing with photography

I made these photographs some years ago, as you can see. Not knowing, or even dreaming, what was going to happen to the world. This is a series photographed with a small Minox 35mm camera, big as a cigarette box. Nothing special today, but back then it was. The series is all about Empire State Building. Seen from various positions in New York.

You can see that these projects, themes, that I am working on is not something new. Concentrating on a theme I try to see things from as many different views as I can.

Just as you press the button it becomes a thing of the past. Sometimes more than you can imagine.

I have not visited NY for many years. It would be great to go there again and to work on a new series.

This picture of Empire State Building is special. It was made leaning my camera against my shoe. Not knowing precisely what I was aiming at. This is one out of 5 exposures. People passing were looking at me wondering what I was doing.
