Jeg er synlig bare når jeg reflekteres. Kan jeg ikke brukes til noe, er jeg til bry. Skaper jeg ikke noe vakkert, er ikke jeg vakker nok til å bli elsket.  

Jeg er ingenting hvis jeg ikke er noe. Bare når jeg reflekeres er jeg synlig.


Stemmene raser i hodet som en orkan, skapt for å skape kaos, frykt og ødeleggelse. De har ingen plass i livet mitt, eller kroppen min. De er føde for en Tvil som setter klørne i livsgnisten min, og stjeler tiden min.

Jeg ser Tvilen i øynene, gir slipp på stemmene, og puster igjen

All that wedding and no potatoes

Jeg reprogramerer hjernen og blir litt bryllupsfotograf fremmover, så hvis du eller noen du kjenner skal gifte seg og trenger fotograf med mye energi og kjærlighet for kjærlighet, så ta gjerne kontakt. Jeg bor i Oslo, men flytter lett på meg. Er f.eks ganske ofte å finne på Vestlandet, og har ellers lett reisefot.

Send en mail til malinlongva@gmail.com for spørsmål, og for å sette i gang eventuell planlegging. Jeg både fotograferer og filmer, og i tillegg er jeg god på å lage fotobøker. Jeg er skikkelig gira hvis du er det!

Tying the knot, are you not? Need a photographer or videographer? And maybe you want your very own gifs? If you pick me up by either jet plane, helicopter og hot air balloon: I'm yours. Seriously though, I'll travel the world to photograph your wedding. Send an email to malinlongva@gmail.com, and we'll talk about it <3

live and let go

it's interessting how you can be absolutely in love with something, but still ready to let it go. That's how I feel about life now, in general. I love every step, but I continue to look forward. 

for the night I am staying in Biarritz. My God, I could live here for the rest of my life.. The authentic buildings, the slight smell of sea-salt in the air, the amazing nature, the perfect air- and water temprature, the cheap wine and lovely places to have a coffe..

I am traveling for some weeks now, and if I wanted to, I could just stay here for a while. Live the Biarritz-life. But I booked a place to stay in Bilbao tomorrow. Moving forward in life. Seeing new places. Being in the now



Becoming a more elevated version of myself, is scary for many reasons. Holding on to physical things feels so very good, and it helps me remember life.

I can be very forgetful, and that has been worrying me on a subconscious level all my life. I imagine being 90 years old, looking back at life and seeing nothing but a void. I am scared I won't remember how I lived my life, and how I spent my days. I believe this is what drove me towards documenting my life

I lost my Grandfather to cancer a few weeks ago, and I remember feeling as though no time had passed the past 15 years since I saw my Grandmother lying in her hospital bed, as lifeless as he was. I recognised all the emotions and I literally remembered it like it was yesterday. Time felt relative -- almost as though life the past decade was a piece of paper someone crunched together into something unlinear and chaotic. I had lived for so long and done so many wonderful things, but the reality of life crunched it all together. 

At one point I started to remember big and smaller events in life. I remembered how life changing it had been to truly fall in love, and I remembered becoming a big sister. I remember the places I had lived and the journies I had made both literally and mentally. All this because I had been collecting and documenting. I had been capturing my time, and I could look back as much as I felt like.

So I guess I'm very scared of letting this type of life go. I'm scared in general. Little by little, though, I am letting myself trancend into a bigger and higher conciouns. I am living more and more in the now, and I am accepting that now is enough. I hope and believe that then will be enough in 60 years.
