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.

New Work – Into The Woods

Like any dating profile with a decent amount of respect for themselves I too, besides red wine and sunsets, also enjoy wandering in the woods… Sometimes I bring a camera. Occasionally I even take a picture… or two. This is a collection of some of them.

Enjoy!

Black Rocks, Ucluelet

I had the chance to revisit Tofino and its surrounding areas again this summer, I absolutely love it out there! And between all the surfing, breathtaking nature and great local foods, there was off course time to do some photos as well. This little mini series was done by the black rocks close to the Amphitrite Lighthouse by Ucluelet, about 1/2 an hours drive from Tofino.

 

Enjoy.

Cloud Study

Hi there,

The end of summer is unfortunately near(at least in our part of the world), I hope you all have enjoyed it! I have had a fabulous and busy summer here in Vancouver with lots of travel, photography projects and commercial work.

Anyways, I thought I would share this little mini series that I recently shot during a trip up to Powell River, Canada. Back and forth from Vancouver it makes a total of 4 ferry rides. And guess what… these are all shot from one of these rides… The clouds, light and mountains were absolutely amazing and I feel these photographs really showcase their raw beauty. This past year I have been shooting a lot of work in my studio here in Vancouver so it’s been great to get outside and shoot these past months.

Btw, you might have seen some teasers from this series if you follow me on Instagram, Facebook or Behance.

Published – SPAM Magazine, Milano, Italy

My Carman, Manitoba series was recently published by the communication agency SPAM out of Milano, Italy in their very innovative magazine by the same name – SPAM magazine.

Here is a little quote from their site:
“In the age where magazines are going digital, we’re going from digital back to paper. Are we nuts? Probably, or maybe just in love with what we do.” 

You can see the tear sheets below and of course view the full series at www.jenskristianballe.com and www.jenskristianballephotographs.com.

As a bonus their print magazine also uses features like Augmented Reality, HERE is a video about how that works.
