…take pictures of abandoned buildings.

I was down at Carlsberg City recently for the annual Copenhagen Photo Festival. As it has been the case in recent years, I was utterly puzzled by the work exhibited. It’s just more of the same-tired-cliche-same/same. There were a couple of curated exhibitions like ‘After my time’ by Joachim Ladefoged and ‘Within the landscape’ by Astrid Kruse Jensen that were nice but otherwise, once again , the offering was quite disappointing. The entire top floor of the old brewery was filled with something that looked like old calendar photos – I honestly felt that I had wasted my time going down.

I then headed to the ‘Halmlageret’ building where, once again, being exposed to a poor offering of images, I became fascinated with the building. While it was definitely not an ideal space for the exhibition, it was quite beautiful in itself. It had been quite some time since I did a bit of photography outside of the studio, it rarely happens anymore actually so I took out my trusty phone and started snapping away.

When I left the building, that sense of overwhelming disappointment was replaced with a new-found sense of happiness and achievement. I’ve decided that I will take some models there soon and do some on-location images as the building is just full of wonderful textures and odd natural lighting. For now, here’s a selection of the images I took:

The magic lamp

And now for something completely different :)

Today is Irina’s 30th birthday. She is my girlfriend/love of my life and I wanted to give her something really special. She is very creative herself and has a keep eye and a great love of beauty. I know that she is particularly fond of Arabic patterns and design so I wanted to incorporate that into the gift somehow. After giving it a lot of thought, I decided to make an art object that was also practical in some way so that she would interact with it and use it on a regular basis. And so, the magic lamp idea was born. I had seen something similar done on a larger scale out of metal and thought it would look cool in a smaller size as well. I made the design, created the box sides and I was ready to go.

A good friend of mine, Kim Holm (artist and professional crazy person) works at a culture house here in Copenhagen and he told me about their fabrication lab – FAB LAB. He helped me get set up with the materials and the laser cutting machine and I was on my way.  It was my very first time attempting anything like this so there was a pretty steep learning curve but I managed to pull it off quite well. Here are some photos I took in my studio of the final result:

She absolutely loved it so all the hard work paid off :)

Going through old photo sessions and finding all kinds of hidden gems like this beauty. It didn’t really fit the series it was shot for (or during) but I love it as a solo piece. Let me know what you think
