I’m very honored to be invited to participate in an inspiration challenge with Film Shooters Collective. The challenge was to be inspired of, and swap styles with another member, and I was appointed to work together with the incredible artist Nils Karlson.
It was far more difficult and also rewarding than I had thought.
If you are interested, feel welcome to have a look at our results, and enjoy both the images and the accompanying text sections.

Enjoy, and be inspired! :-)
You may wonder why I photograph this kind of images in black and white, when they could have been so much more intense in colour? Well, I think that black and white leave so much more to our imagination. My intention is to create a feeling, not so much an image.
Sound strange? Yeah, it possibly is…. But I do have a strong intention to take them further in my darkroom, and hopefully create some lith copies, I think they would look awesome in lith.
Until then, I hope you’ll enjoy them in plain black and white :-)
Sometimes life can be hard… This darling has been scarred by life <3
Last Saturday, I felt incredibly frustrated, I really needed to photograph!
The renovation of my house + a few other projects have done that I had neither the time nor the energy to do what I want. This has now been going on since last October.
To make a long and tedious story short, and quickly get in on the positive things I discovered, was that I was in such a creative frustration that I took my Hassie and charged on several long extension tubes after another, more than I ever used together , went out on my lawn, because it was extremely hot here in Sweden for a few days so I did not want to go away somewhere to photograph. I forgot the light meter inside the house, thinking that Sunny 16 will have to do …..
It was blowing a little, and with a depth of field of one millimeter so-so, I had very little hope for good images, just a strong feeling that I MUST do this.
So I did!
And I’m very glad I did!
My all-time favourite weed!
I hope you like it too!
