Last year I have been working on a new project called Winter Lights. The light during Scandinavian winter is very short but also very intense. The sun is very low in the sky and the light therefore reaches deep into the corners. Not just in our houses but also in our minds. The project is culminating in a book that is planned to be released together with an exhibition in December 2023. I want to build an intimate relationship with the audience and therefore the size of book and the pictures are small. During the residence I’m going to finish the project; the pictures needs to be prepared for printing and the final design of the book decided. I will also make the proofing of the files so I can send them directly to the printing house before October the 31st. I’m also going to work on my next project called Unseen Stories. In this project I want to examine different aspects of the world we are living in: what would the world look like if human senses could perceive things that is possible only for other species? (so called Umwelt zones) Catalonian artists are famous for inventing the landscape painting and I want to photograph in your beautiful and powerful surroundings for completing my story. A book is planned to be released in October 2024. A few of the pictures from the series will be exhibited at FotoNostrum in October. Exact dates are not yet decided.
