A bathtub follow up

Time for a new Abreuvoir I spotted this watering place on my afternoon walk, not sure what the pipes are for – maybe just there to add some colour to my photo? I also found this beautiful harrow – left to rust in a corner of no-mans-land. And a tyre trying to become nature …

Where do old ships go when they die?

You know my love for beaches, for long stretches of land disappearing into the sea. For sand and salt water, empty places where the wind blows your mind out.

Wild

I’m hiking in order to save myself – At 22 she lost her mother, in the four years following – everything unravels. Thats why Cheryl Strayed decided to walk the the Pacific Crest Trail. Strayed’s memoir about the hike, Wild: From Lost to Found on the Pacific Crest Trail, is a fantastic story about transformation and becoming oneself. The movie…

my life in pictures

I read it like a sacred text, word by word, paragraph by paragraph. Someone said: Lopez writes about the visible world with the mind of a…

bathtub news

Not the most delicate of finds this one,but as a bathtub-documentarist I can’t afford to be choosy, my assignment is to document the reality, as it is … not to play around like –– an artist … ?

rough sea

These images are from Kvassheim, not far from my house by the ocean. Unfortunately I forgot my camera, so this is iPhone. But hopefully you can still get a sense of what the North Sea is like after a rough night. Today has been calm, but the meteorologists are promising more wind in the days…
