Strangers

June 2013, Washington D.C. I rarely stop strangers to ask for a portrait. But back in 2013, I spent some illuminating weeks with photographers in the area – the guys at Strata Collective, Diriki Rice and John Nelson – learning about their practice, and was encouraged to step out of my shell. That time in DC remains one […]

Iron

When I snapped this photo back in 2013 in Frederiksborg Slot, it was because I couldn’t resist the analogy of knights and shining armor begging to be made (and the light falling on both was beautiful). But our lives aren’t half as burdened as those who live in distress, and/or fight in enough metal to construct a car with. The […]

Bridge to Sweden

Borderless crossings between the countries belonging to Schengen, remain a novelty to me. It is a source of fascination that I can catch a train between Denmark and Sweden, or make a short gander into France, from Germany, to have lunch (as happened a couple of weeks ago), without having my passport checked or going through customs. Long may we […]

Song and Sustenance: A new direction for the X-Pro 1

Remember how I said I owned 3 cameras in the last post? Well, I don’t anymore. My battered old X-Pro 1 is getting a new lease on life, after having scoured the streets of many a city, and survived collisions with floors, roads, walls and a multitude of other surfaces. It is moving on to gentler hands, and new purpose: […]

To all the Fujis I’ve loved before: X-Pro 1, X-T1, X-T10, X-E2

I’ve owned three Fuji X-series cameras since I made the switch from a DSLR kit three years ago, and have enjoyed them all. Going mirrorless has been a good move for someone who has to drag all her stuff around with her everywhere she goes. Using Fuji has meant owning a tough, lightweight kit that delivers pro quality […]

Interior, Maroc

In Morocco, I saw insides. Flemming and I spent two weeks in Tangier and Fes in 2013. I had three good days of walking around before getting a bad stomach. To help things along, I then sprained an ankle upon arriving in Fes. Exploring its labyrinthine medina suddenly didn’t seem like a great idea. But I got a lot of reading […]

The Fog

Fog is not something I’ve often seen in Perth. It was a different season when this photo was taken, from the scorching summer that is present reality. Part of the Suburbia project.

Georg(e) the Danish Bicycle

July 2014 This year’s Copenhagen photo project didn’t involve any headless aliens. It was instead, all about a red bicycle. Georg(e) is his name, and he was waiting for me when I arrived in Copenhagen on the 1st of July. George is the color of Dannebrog, the Danish flag, and he has carried all the men in Flemming‘s family at one point or another throughout his 20-odd years.
