As a photographer, I work with both analog and digital. I have previously worked in advertising, press and portrait but I did not find my place before I began working with art and decoration, this as well as publishing books has been my passion.
I am trained in the classic photography with darkroom and fiberprints and am glad that I master the ancient techniques. Working in the dark only handling the light, making negatives into positive is magic and is sacred to me. That is like poetry and life.
Sometimes I prefer to explore photography in various media, sometimes framed on such as fabric, steel and acrylglass or regular tempered glass. I like to see the photos in another form and creating more dimensions.
I have published three books. A book of portraits "known and unknown in Stavanger" and a cookbook "The Jærske Kjøkken" and the lyrical book “Langs Linjene” which was released in 2013.
I try to capture the stillness, the inside and go beyond the surface, trying to get the little breath of something that one normally wouldn’t see… the little movement or the light that falls. I started using a lot of lamps and equipment, but now I tend to use mostly natural light.
