New Work – Signal

A signal as referred to in communication systems, signal processing, and electrical engineering is a function that “conveys information about the behavior or attributes of some phenomenon”. In the physical world, any quantity exhibiting variation in time or variation in space (such as an image) is potentially a signal that might provide information on the status of a physical system, or convey a message between observers, among other possibilities.

New Work – Remains

 

New Work: REMAINS

The series Remains portrays a handful of World War II bunkers located on the Danish West Coast in the Oksbøl Military Firing Range close to Blåvandshug. The firing range is the largest of its kind in Denmark. 
The bunkers were part of the Nazi regimes Atlantic Wall, stretching along the coast from Norway in the North, all the way to the Spanish border in the South. Close to 5000 kilometres of concrete fortifications and other defensive measures.
The bunkers exhibited in this series were all originally built in the sand dunes but are now, after decades of erosion and exposure to the elements, slowly being swallowed up by the Atlantic Ocean
It is unknown how long these relics will remain. For now they still stand as a strong reminder of the past.

One Eyeland Photography Award

It’s been a pretty busy year for me so far. I’ve managed to work with some great new clients such as Rethink, Coast Capital Savings and Universal Pictures, I’ve had the pleasure of having some of my photography featured by some well established online outlets and magazines such as Behance and Dodho… and to finish it off, I just received an award from One Eyeland in the “Professional Advertising – Self Promotion” category. Not too bad at all…  We also managed to squeeze in a minor trip to Tofino on Vancouver Island, which – if you have been following my blog or Instagram for while – know that I just adore… HERE are some images from my last trip there.

Anyways… back to the award. I won with the image below entitled “X”, it has previously won at IPA – The International Photography Awards as well.
