Same same, but always different

I see mostly the same jockeys and the same horses, but it is never ever the same. The weather changes, and my angles. And everything else. Some of my images are not about racing but still lifes/details from the horses or jockeys. It is a colorful and very exciting sport! The owners and trainers often pimp their racing darlings. Now I am looking forward to a dirty dirttrack, AND a couple of exhibitions with my images. Exciting!   From yesterdays races at Bro Park.      😊🏇😊  Pelle

The Met Celebrates Irving Penn, Revolutionary Photographer

They do, and once again I wish I had all the time in the world just going around enjoying exhibitions. Together with Avedon and Albert Watson he is one of my absolute favorite photographers. Over the years I have got so much inspiration from his work. The frozen fruits, cigarette butts, flowers, the backdrops and SO MUCH more. Recently we have been fortunate here in Stockholm to see his work at Åmells. What more could a photographer my age ask for? 😊  Pelle

A selection from yesterdays races. Sun and snow coming down. It started off not good, as my camera didn´t expose more then one image at the time. After some time of intense problem solving I managed to get it working as I would like it to. There are so many things to choose when you are setting up an advanced digital camera. It ended up OK after all, and once again I learned about preparations. Especially with a new camera.  You are never too old to learn…

Was Diane Arbus the Most Radical Photographer of the 20th Century?

If you have ever seen a Diane Arbus photograph you will remember it, and her very personal style. That can only be said about few photographers.                                               Thank you Leif Skoogfors for sharing this interesting article.

© Diane Arbus

A new biography and Met exhibit show how she sacrificed her marriage, her friendships, and eventually her life for her career as an artist living on the edge.

Diane Arbus’s last known negative is labeled “#7459.” She found herself unable to imagine past that number.

For the love of a good camera – in pictures

From Lily Cole posing with a supersized Pentax to Bill Brandt hiding behind his Kodak wide-angle, cameras are the stars of this collection of snaps and selfies. 

Featured image at the top:

Many photographers are posing on their selfies with a camera, this is only natural. I guess. As you can see also the top photographers have thought of the same idea for their work. I wish I could visit the exhibition to see some of my favorites. 🌞 Pelle

Long ago

I made this series of posters. And it was long ago. Then what did I do? Nothing much. It is that long ago that I spelled my name with a hyphen.

Don´t miss!

I am afraid I will, and I am very sorry for that. If you live close enough you SHOULD go there. Paul Biddle is a very good friend of mine, and one of the best photographers that I know. And know of. He has the gift to always creating interesting and surprising images from his imagination.

Photography  is also, among many other things, capturing dreams. Seeing the inner vision and to let that come out. Paul is one of the best. I am sure that he and his colleagues will create a wonderful exhibition that will open up your fantasy as well. Go see!
