grief - a personal photo project

not my usual stuff this, but I quite like it for that exact reason. it was a personal project in school where I picked grief as my subject. i wanted to portray how, when someone dies, you feel like a part of you die as well, and that's why loosing someone is as hard as it is. it was a lot harder to use photography to portray a specific state or feeling then i thought it would be. the girl with the red hair is Vilde, and girl with brown hair is Julie


cutting and pasting the analog way

a while back I did a few of these little projects, and I think I'll catch up on that hobby very soon. there is something about making things you can actually touch, and not just look at on a screen. thumbs up, and fingers crossed for creativity 


veronica & sunrise



a few months ago, Ingrid and I took a walk through a snow covered scenery where some sunbeams were filtering through the trees. because it was suck a beautiful sight, we started talking about how there is a word for everything. whether it's a state of mind or a description of something, there will always be a word for it in one language or another. waldeinsamkeit is German for the feeling of being alone in the woods, natsukashii is Japanese for feeling a sweat nostalgia and sorrow. so naturally we were wondering what the word for "sunbeams through the trees" was, and what do you know: komorebi 

i took this photo of lovely Vilde, after a photo shoot a few days ago. the final result might just show up in a few days..



oh beautiful Julie! a little outtake from a shoot I did a few days ago. she's a bloody good photographer, so have a look at her site here, will you.


happy birthday yesterday, me

it's funny how I always cry on my birthday. it's such an overwhelming day in many ways, and yesterday was the most wonderful day in such a long while! trying to put the feelings into words are too hard, but I owe my happiness to you Stian, and to what you give me. you contain so much, and thankfully you want to share your life with me. I genuinly feel like I could not me more blessed then I am

a man fell into a hole

and couldn’t get out. a doctor walked by and the man yelled up, “can you help me? I can’t get out!” the doctor wrote a prescription, threw it down into the hole, and walked away.

a priest walked by, and the man yelled up, “help! I’ve fallen into a hole, and can’t get out.
the priest wrote a prayer on a piece of paper, threw it down to the man, and walked on.

soon the man’s friend walked by. “hey, friend! I’ve fallen into this hole and can’t get out. can you help me?” the friend said, “sure” and jumped into the hole with his friend. the man said, “are you crazy? now we’re both stuck in this hole!” but his friend said, “no, see, I’ve been in this hole before, and I know how to get out.”

when you realize the debth of everything around you, you sort of understand why it took a loong time to reach that point of understandment. still a long way to go



i just updated my flickr profile for the first time in a long while. just saying. 


school's in

i moved to Oslo exactly one month ago today to study photography at Bilder Nordic. so far so great, actually. these photos are part of an self-portrait assignment inspired by "Song of Myself" by Walt Whitman. today i'm trying really hard to think of an idea for a dreamlike photo shoot. i'm stuck right now, but i'll think of something i hope
