  • There is no thing as valuable, as the memories we make.

    The two great passions in my life are traveling- and documenting life in photographs and videos.
    My intuition has always been my guding light. I like to follow the path that naturally unfolds, in life, as in photography. The urge to capture moments and communicate feelings visually has been with me for as long as I can remember... Photography is a part of me. And I can’t get enough of new places and faces.

Eleven years ago I met Brandur from the Faroe Islands. I for one had never heard of the Faroe Islands ever before. It turned out to be this small accumultion of 18 islands in the north atlantic, between Iceland and Scandinavia.

Brandur is one of a kind. His positive way to see the world and people around him, with this huge curiosity, genuine warmth, and almost naive kindness, made me want to know more about those islands he came from. I started to build a picture in my mind of this genuine, simple, untroubled, raw and beautiful place.

We became very good friends over the years, and last year I finally got to visit his family and their mystic islands…. With only 50 000 inhabitants, I compared it to a small town being an entire country. One day we visited a record store that only sold music from local musicians… You can even find Brandurs music on those shelves, listen here.
I was amazed by the great range of culture and talent from this little country.
He wanted to show me everything, and while I kept shooting photographs of everything, he kept talking about everything, six days straight….
While we traveled from Island to island, his brother Trondur and his girlfriend Liv joined us on one roadtrip, which was a perfect opportunity for a couples shoot.
The night before my flight home, we left on a sailboat together with Brandurs cusin Havardur, headed for the airport.
What a magical morning.
I am very greatful to have gotten so warmly invited into his parents and his brothers and Livs home.
Go explore the Faroe Islands folks!

In november me and my friend and colleague Bjorn traveled to Hawaii, Costa Rica and Los Angeles for a project we’re working on, that is about spreding the list of the 17 global goals of the UN. Guri and her family invited us to live with them while we stayed on the island of Maui and got a little inside of their life, focusing on sustainability and healthy living.

I fell in love with this place, and especially the town of Paia that we stayed in. It has some kind of relaxed, eco-friendly, happy vibe. And staying with this lovely family sure did contribute to that..  These are some photos from our days in Hawaii and a little photoshoot I had with Guri.

This is Connie and Ray from Hong Kong. In september I joined them on their adventurous roadtrip through Iceland, shooting some pre wedding photos along the way. Having never before met and then spending days together in a car and cabins, I found myself with two true troopers, and the best travel company I could imagine. While putting up with every idea of mine, no matter what the temperature or how hard the wind was blowing, we had alot of fun.
Iceland to me is a mixture of mystery and solitude and epic beauty. The roads look endless at times but never end in boredom..
It was kind of sad saying goodbye to these two when it was time to head home for me, but I feel lucky to have been the one they brought along. Here are some of my favorite “memories”

December. Winter was setting in in Sweden, as I sat on the plane to other side of the world to meet Kendra and Rob. A New Yorker couple, that was getting married in St Barth, in the West Indies.

After landing on St Maarten, I took a boat to St Barth.
The sun was setting, the wind was warm, waves were high and while I held on tight to my camera I had this magnificent view over the ocean. Boats and travelers all around. Reggae music streaming through the speakers -it was the perfect introduction to the few days that I was going to spend with this sweet couple and their closest friends and family.

The “little” collection of photos below are not just of the wedding day, but the entire trip. The wedding itself was very elegant, and unlike any wedding I’d shot before, it was set in the evening, lit up delicate.

It was not just the fantastic setting that made this journey so memorable, but as I was welcomed so kindly into the group of people, I felt lucky to be apart of their memories made; and being there to capture it all.
