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.
Been photowalking in Stockholm only a few times, last occasion was in September last year (2015). But it pays off to review older pics. So here, a totally new set on an old event.
Half the pics I’ve redone since last year, half are all new.
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“.
Whenever I walk the streets, I look a lot for people in all shapes and of all kinds of action. Well aware that my presence alone manipulates reality (as it should be), I really don’t believe inte the so-called paradigm of candid street photography: “To not interact or influence what’s happening.”
You can read more about my stand on this with “rules” in street photography here (click). That said, Ive seen how the interaction between photographer and motif results in moments that change over time. Because time is change.
Here’s an example of what I’m talking about.
On social media (for example Instagram) I use the hashtag #tic for these pics.
To me, street photography has a documentary notion. And you just don’t manipulate the pic, the moment when it was taken.
I’ve gotten sidetracked in one specific way, and thats in what I call the Artsy project. On a page/portfolio on this site you can see some of the results. And, as you might see, it all starts with one of my street pics. Click here to see them.
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.
Not all pics I took, just some. I’m not finished with all the nice pics from Lisbon a month ago, so I’ll add a few more later on but still, here is a start… (click).
I’m passionate about my street photography. But also try not to be possessive of knowledge or claiming I have enough knowledge. One of the great goals in my life is to constantly learn and to help others. It’s a feel good thing, really.
With my good friend and fellow street photographer Daniel Eliasson, I’ve written a basic course in street photography. The first course/work shop was in Swedish, but less than a year ago I translated the course into English.
We claim that street photography is a great discipline for learning more about your own way of taking pictures, of your camera(s) and of others in the urban environment. And – tada – this bit-sized course is totally free. Why don’t you try it too?
Och. Kursen finns naturligtvis även på svenska (klicka).
