So I finally got my photo book with portraits from around the world published! This is a collection of my favourite faces photographed between the years of 2008 and 2014, and I offer it in a beautiful 10x8in (20x25cm) 66-page Hard Cover edition with the highest quality Pearl Photo paper available. The colours will pop, all details will come out – and flipping through the pages will hopefully be a beautiful experience for anybody. It’s not cheap to offer books that can be shipped as single copies, so at the price of USD 79.90 I’m not making any profit – but my photography has always been about sharing photos and stories, so I hope some people will be able to enjoy this despite the price.
I like to talk to strangers. In making new connections, I am constantly reminded that every person has a unique story that deserves to be told – each story teaches me something new and invites me to learn, think and feel. While language sometimes can be a barrier, facial expressions have proven to be a universal way to communicate across all cultures and ages. In this book I want to use this universal language to share a selection of genuine stories, feelings, thoughts and realities – through faces.
I am not a photographer who plans a frame in detail – I’m a very curious person who loves to take pictures of life, and to share. I always try to preserve the realities I experience and the realities that people choose to invite me to, and I keep my photos as dear memories of the moments I have lived and the people I have met.
With a strong focus on photography, and a short note of context, I want to invite you to look, feel and listen to what the individuals in this photo book have to share, and take a moment to fill in the blanks about their experiences, emotions and uniqueness.
Thank you for accompanying me in my curiosity for people and the world, I hope you will enjoy this journey as much as I do.
