I am an autodidact photographer/artist from Norway. Born in 1961.
Work, lives in Os, Norway and Karby, Denmark.
All my works are in the square format.
I can find a motif in almost anything. I see myself more as an artist than a photographer. The artwork always starts with an ordinary photography/portrait. I find interest in achitecture, furnitures, cars and other design. I am an eager reader of all sorts of magazines regarding these things. One of my absolute favourite photographers is my fellow countryman Knut Bry. He has been a big inspiration for me. From around 1985 I was competing in various competitions around the world, and I won a lot of prizes and awards. The A.F.I.A.P. award from FIAP (Federation Internationale de l’art Photographique) I received in 1990.
After the digital revolution around 2000, I lost interest for several years, but now it’s back for full. I take a lot of pictures every day. I use my iPhone X.
