New Personal Work – Pink

Happy to share these 3 new conceptual still life pieces. Heads up – they are a bit punny. Besides the humour this was a fun project where I got to play with some harder shadows for once, I’m quite a fan and have a few more similar ones in the works. Also there will be some great news about this series soon so keep an eye out;)

Fish Tale

An improbable, boastful tale, as in He came up with some fish tale about his winnings at the track. This expression alludes to the tendency of fishermen to exaggerate the size of their catch.

Personal Work – TV

As you may know I have created a few more pieces that goes along with the concepts of my older Temptations series. Previously I’ve shared the pieces Gold  and Bacon. If you missed them you can check them out HERE and HERE.

temp·ta·tion
tem(p)ˈtāSHən/
noun
1. a desire to do something, esp. something wrong or unwise.

The one I’m sharing with you today is titled TV… for obvious reasons. This was also the first time I played with this background colour, quite like how it turned out. Enjoy!

Personal Work – Bacon

I have created a few more pieces that goes along with the concept of my older Temptations series. Previously I’ve shared Gold which you can check out HERE if you missed it.

temp·ta·tion
tem(p)ˈtāSHən/
noun
1. a desire to do something, esp. something wrong or unwise.

Keeping this definition in mind the conceptual Temptations series was created fixating on the negative lifestyle habits and addictions of humans around the world. Though the theme is dark the series is kept light-hearted, full of bright colours and carefully styled objects to match.

The one I’m sharing with you today is titled Bacon. Because we all love Bacon (except if you’re a vegan I suppose). Also, fun fact of the day:

  • I’m Danish. Bacon comes from pigs. For every Dane in the world there are more than 5 pigs in Denmark.

We are vastly outnumbered. So eat more bacon!

But watch out… (Especially if you don’t have free healthcare like those communists socialists from Denmark…)

You’re still here…
I’ll give you a second fun fact of the day: There are about 450000 calories worth of eatable meat/fat in a pig. With an average human daily calorie intake of 2250 there are enough pigs in Denmark to feed every Dane for more than a thousand days. That’s almost 3 years!**

 

 

 

 

**Calculated with rough school math by a creative person…

DODHO Magazine Feature

Great news – I’m pretty excited to announce that my Carman, Manitoba series recently was featured in DODHO Magazine out of Barcelona, Spain… Last year the series was also featured by SPAM Magazine out of Milano, Italy… Seems like southern Europe are quite fond of this series.

On another note, I’m also going on a mini trip to Vancouver Island today, never been there at this time of year so thats pretty exciting! Hopefully the surf is good! But nonetheless, I’m sure I’ll get a few great shots out of it:) In the meantime I’ll leave you with some of the photos that came out of my last trip to this magical place, you can check them out here

…And you can of course follow my trip on Instagram (@ballephoto).

 

Thanks!
