On the street, it doesn’t have to be perfect. The emotions count, no matter how technically good you are. So, sometimes I like it to be not only rough and somewhat “unfinished”, but also out of focus. It works as it is.
Do you agree?
Sometimes I’ll charge myself with a task as I photowalk. A day last July I was all into windows and their reflections. Just for the fun of it.

Last december 2014 I was walking downtown Gothenburg, just browsing for interesting people. Suddenly i heard the squeaking sound of an old tram approaching. There was time for one quick shot.
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.
It’s kind of strange, how you can fall in love with a pic afterwards (in processing), even if you at the photo-moment didn’t think of is as something special.
I give you the girl that’s “Looking for the rabbit“.
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?

I love people, I really do. That might also be one of the main reasons why I like street photography so much. People and their everyday business are extraordinary.
On the train to Gothenburg, as I was prepping my camera, I couldn’t resist taking a picture of this girl.
She was doing the exact same thing as so many other do on a train – looking out the window.
Sometimes you just see people aiming at something you can’t see yourself. But their faces are magic.
