I went fishing…

A week ago I went fishing with friends in Norway. Not a rod in sight. I am usually not going around with a camera just in case, but this was different.

I went fishing

Something that I don´t often do. However, with my dear friend Knut, his brother Asle and their wonderful friends in Norway it all went well. We caught lots of fish. Fishing is very relaxing. Also taking care of the net after is contemplative. We had so much of everything and nothing to talk about. First time I managed to photograph fishing as well.

Thanks Knut for letting me borrow your camera!

Start me up!

Yesterday was the final race before my exhibition at Jägersro in Malmö upcoming Sunday the 16th. I concentrated on the start. The starters are cool people. Not all horses like to go into the boxes, so some need help to get in. Horses are strong and you better watch out for kicks. One of the first thing I was told when I started photographing horse races was that there is no start car. On the dirt track, or grass, the horses are accelerating so much quicker. The starters has to be quick too. When all the horses are in the boxes they just want to get out of there and race.

Now my biggest problem for the exhibition is to make my final selection of images from all the thousands that I have. There will be just 10-12 to be exhibited.

Magnum photographers’ historic shots of New York – in pictures

Magnum has always been, and is always great photography by great photographers.     Oh, there are SO MANY exhibitions I would like to see…

I found this in The Guardian.

As part of its 70th anniversary program, Magnum Photos is holding an exhibition of photographs taken in New York City during the early years of the agency, from 1947 to 1960. The show includes classic images from their archive, as well as pictures from their New York office. Early Magnum In & On New York is at the National Arts Club Grand Gallery until 29 April, can be viewed online and prints purchased through Magnum.

Massive landscapes, or just a trick…

More shots from above, but this time not so high up. The drones has gotten us into thinking in new patterns. The article from Washington Post. 😊  Pelle

Photographer Joseph Philipson saw more than just cuts in the sand on the shores of Long Beach, Calif. He saw the “code that constructs our visual reality,” or the mathematical phenomenon of fractals, mathematical sets that show a repeating pattern at every scale. In nature, fractals can be seen not only on coastlines but also river systems, blood vessels and crystals, to name a few. Philipson noted to In Sight that his images could be “massive landscapes, deep valleys, canyons … it’s a trick of the eye but I’m really only maybe five feet over.”

 

Up up and away

Here is another set of drone photography. One perhaps considered as a selfie. Nature from above is often very graphical and beautiful. Just look at these images. Hmmm, just thinking, how many are falling from the sky?

Aerial photography platform SkyPixel received 27,000 entries to its 2016 competition. Here are the winning shots plus some of The Guardians favourites. SkyPixel’s competition was open to both professional and amateur photographers and was split into three categories: Beauty, 360, and Drones in Use.
