Day 100 of 100, Nordjylland, Danmark This is it, the last post of this Hundred Day Diary. I’m not sure what comes after this yet. I’ve discovered that I quite enjoy small blogging projects. I’ve been keeping one blog or another since 1998. You’d think that at some point, I would have at least tried topical writing, which bloggers have …

Day 99 of 100, Nordjylland, Danmark This is it, the second last post of this Hundred Day Diary project. Most of these posts have been drivel, but regardless, it’s been challenging to keep a public daily diary. 1. Writing something cogent everyday is hard. I write reams of gibberish all the time, but sifting through all the voices in my …

Day 98 of 100, Nordjylland, Danmark If the vast majority of work that is being done is overwhelmingly male, western and of a privileged class, how does that affect our ability to tell stories? Well, I think it does a few things; at the very least it creates a vocabulary of image making that is more restricted. We see what …

Day 97 of 100, Nordjylland, Danmark I’m almost done with my hundred days. It has been a good project, and many thanks to those of you (12 now, a 400% increase from the last count of 3!) who have been following along. It got easier to keep to as the days went by, simply by giving myself the leave to …

Day 94 of 100, Nordjylland, Danmark In the midst of this all this moving around, I managed to make some prints. Which arrived right before we set out for Hannover. They are neither extravagant nor exciting, just some pharmacy six by fours so I can have a look at my pictures in more tangible fashion. I’ve been carrying them around …

Day 95 of 100, Vejle, Danmark Spinderihallerne, a repurposed cotton mill, is quite the venue for an office. Fujifilm Nordic’s account manager Ib Thordal has his here, an bright, spacious warehouse-y place filled with eclectic people from all walks of creative life. It has enough open spaces to host, among other things, the Food Photo Festival taking place this weekend. …

Day 93 of 100, Germany – Denmark Today we made what feels like the tenth journey from Germany to Denmark in these couple of months, though it’s more the 5th or 6th in either direction. In two days, Flemming and I go back to Hobro station and head that way again, though only a short distance this time. We stop …
