Slow and distant walk.

What do you do, when you’re supposed to stay away from people. Well, you can still take pictures of them – as they stay away…

All taken in Gothenburg, end of May.

 

Exhibition time.

Starting this Sunday, my street photographs will be seen at Crippas Café and bar in Gothenburg, Sweden. For three weeks you can see some 25+ images, taken in several larger European cities.

The grand opening is at 4 pm, Sunday March 15. You are welcome to come and see and talk about the photos, as I’ll be there until 8 pm. Hope you can make it.

Here a few of the photos you can see at Crippas.

In the city of love.

A few of my Paris images from May. People are the best, wouldn’t you agree?

 

More of my Paris images here.

Dancing in the streets.

Once a year the “Andra Långgatan” in Gothenburg turn into a hot, loud and quite vivid street scene. Dancing, you might call it. #heladagenlång , meaning “all day long”. But it feels as a late nite rave party, more than anything else…

When it’s raining in Paris

Recently came back after a week of street photography in Paris, France. Fun week, with friends, good food and drinks and lots of images. And… not so much summer weather. It actually rained quite a bit. But, as a street photographer, I just happily took a few photos.

These I took mostly on “rive gauche”, the south river bank of Seine a very different day. I think we had at least two thunderstorms pass and wind and sun. All mixed upp. Yes, we also had two rounds of hail…

So when you are under bridges, trying to stay dry and you’re a kid? Let’s have some fun with water.

Hot and wet.

Last summer it was hot and wet in Chicago, this year the very same (and not so common) weather here in Gothenburg. So here a few pics on how to cool off.

Yes, some of the pics are of the celebration after Swedens 1/8-final win over Belgium in the world cup in football/soccer…

Runners and spectators.

Shot a few pics at this year’s Göteborgsvarvet, the world’s largest semi-marathon event, held every May in Gothenburg, Sweden. These pics are more seldom faces and more often unidentifiable people as on-lookers, if you get my drift. This is in part because the pics will be used commercially. I still think that they are “street”. Agree?

The exhibition.

With photographs from London, Lisbon, Berlin, Chicago and Gothenburg my exhibition turned out quite ok. As a creator you always see the small flaws and all, but taking two steps back even I can think: “I’m ok”.

It’s hung inside the Swedish Television and Swedish Radio broadcasting building in Gothenburg, so not that easy to access it. But for me, as a first ever, it is nice enough. You like it too?
