Since late October 2013, apart from spending March in Copenhagen, I have been living in Singapore. I am here to help and support my love Charlene and her mother, Charlene’s father sadly passed away on Oct 30th last year. After 5 months I can actually order food at the local hawker center (must be done in Singaporean English and loud!) and I am an expert at eating with chopsticks. It is time for the first of many stories from My Singapore Life.
I made this portrait in March 2014 working for Red Bull, documenting the recording of an EP by upcoming Danish singer Jessica, produced by Graham. Charlene and I had some fantastic days working with Graham, Jessica and everyone at Red Bull. I love the special atmosphere of creativity and collaboration. Photographing music events and recording sessions can be tricky, you do not want to interfere or disturb, but always in Copenhagen we are welcomed as part of the team and everyone is happy to have us hover around and make pictures. It is a wonderful positive atmosphere of creativity, sharing and making each other awesome, the way it should always be.
Howdy. As a followup to I want to be a Cowboy posted on KAGE collective, I once WAS a cowboy (well posed as one, as I tend to do) in the most classic of settings. Charlene captured me at Monument Valley, Utah.
After several months spent being a domestic-jedi in Singapore, I spent the month of March in Copenhagen. It was awesome to be on the road again and be back in – slightly cold but – magical Copenhagen. And it was wonderful to see family and friends again, ride my bicycle, and work for some of my favourite companies, Fujifilm and Red Bull Studios Copenhagen.
On the 22nd of March, Fujifilm Nordic held an ‘ambassadors’ event for the 5 largest dealers in Denmark and Charlene and I had the pleasure of being part of the entire day.
I published a new story on KAGE Collective – I want to be a Cowboy
Today I turn 902. A nine hundred and two years old time traveling gypsy Jedi – but really, still a spring chicken spaceboy and I feel younger than ever.
København. You are rather magic to us. See you again very soon.
København, Du min København
Hvis jeg faldt ned, griber hun mig
Hvis jeg farer vild, viser hun mig vej
København, Du min København
There’s a new camera in my bag. First I had a loaner from Fuji for a few weeks for testing. Then, this past Saturday, Charlene and I co-hosted and ran a workshop at a great FUJI ambassadors event in Copenhagen (more info and pictures coming). Arriving a bit tired and frozen in the morning, the Fuji Nordic guys welcomed me with an amazing present – the Fuji XT1.
My friend Copyflex always wears funky bright and colourful outfits that matches the tropical dutty bass music he plays and produces – but…
They call it Bass under the Arch. Every year a gathering takes place in Copenhagen as thousands of ravers assemble under the arch of a raised highway. They are here to worship electronic beats and low frequencies. The event commences at 3pm and as the sub-bass enters our bodies, it becomes clear: the Ohoi! crew has us all, resistance is futile.
My grandfather, on my father’s side, was born in 1903. That is him in the picture as a young boy, sitting on the black horse. I am guessing the picture is from 1910-1912. He was already 69 years old when I was born, yet I only remember him as strong and never old.
