Engler i snøen

Eventyr fra det kalde nord

I disse kalde desemberdagene har jeg fått besøk av små eventyrvesener på min egen
veranda. Mine frosne gjester har vært Amor med sine piler, en krokodille,
en troll som er redd og solen og en gråtende engel. Har trollet og engelen et
hemmelig forhold, mon tro? Kan Amor redde dem? Eller gråter engelen fordi hun ikke
vil bli spist av krokodillen? Og hvorfor bryr ikke katten seg katten?

Angels in the snow

Fairy tales from the frozen north.

These last December days have presented me with their own fairy tales visiting me on my own veranda. My special guests have been a cupid, a crocodile, a troll who’s afraid og the sun and a crying angel. Do the troll and the angel have a secret relationship? Can cupid rescue them? Or it the angel crying because she does not want to be eaten my the crocodile? And why doesn’t my cat care?

How do photographers get inspired by other photographers?

I started collecting pictures of Madonna when I was eight years old. That was back in the eighties. She has collaborated with many fashion photographers and created iconic pictures that still fascinates me. My favourite photographer is Herb Ritts. Among many beautiful pictures he has taken, is the cover shot of Madonna’s classic True Blue album from 1986. I have pictures like this in the back of my head when I photograph artist. It is fun to try and recreate iconic photos. And I think that I have captured Aurora Aksnes in a Madonna pose.
