This Friday, a local restaurant in Borås is exhibiting some of my street images. At Tonys Restaurang you can see a small collection of pictures from London, Berlin, Amsterdam and Gothenburg.
Today’s pictures I took at de Dam in Amsterdam a little more than 1,5 year ago. First I only copied them in black and white, but as I’ve started to work lots more in color, I decided to redo them. Which one do you like the most?
My Project Time is change (#TIC)is slowly picking up speed. Now there’s a page in my portfolio/project section on this site, where you can check it out. #TIC is at the moment (sic) what broods my mind the most, so I’ll soon update with more pics.
This Saturday, me and a lot other photographers participate in a makeshift exhibition at Planket in Gothenburg. Everyone get a metre (1,1 yard) and what you do with it is up to you.
I’ll go hardcore. I’ll laminate my 10-12 pics and nail them to wooden boards, just for fun (and for the possibility of rain).
Wanna see some more?

Sometimes a shot is technically not even close to perfect, but still it stirs in your mind – as a forgotten memory of sorts. Out of focus, unsharp and still mindful. As the late night in Amsterdam…
The third of my friends in my street photography community (Gothenburg area) that I’ll like to introduce is Mats Johansson. As many of us, he’s got another job full time and take pics wherever he go (as he travels a lot). No matter whether you call Mats an amateur or not, he’s got that great eye for interesting pics.
I saw one of Mats exhibitions last spring, where he declared that anything urban interests him, sometimes it’s street art, sometimes street photography – quite often a combination of the two. In his own words:
– To look for and catch moments, views and interesting meetings in a urban environment is magic, especially with lots of people and movements in them. It’s the mix of documentary and art that fascinates me.

From Amsterdam and de Dam in April last year. The selfie sticks are all over. And I’ll rather have that, than all the people looking down into a blue screen…
