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…

Recent Exhibitions

I have had the pleasure of being in two group exhibitions in the past month.

First up I had “Silence” exhibited in the group exhibition “The Dark Of The Night”  at the PhotoHaus Gallery here in Vancouver. As always its great to see ones work on the wall.

Secondly I had the full series of “Temptations” exhibited in the “Lab Art Show 2”, a mixed art show by Glitz Entertainment over 2 days in the fabulous Heritage Hall on Main and 15th here in Vancouver, this was a very busy and entertaining event and it was great to be a part of it.

 

I will leave you with the images I had in the shows. They are all for sale in limited edition prints, if your interested or just wish to see them in print, don’t hesitate to contact me.

Personal Project – Temptations part II

As mentioned in my earlier blog post I have lately been working on adding still-life in to my photographic vocabulary. The series consists of 8 images of everyday things you might need, might think you need or just want. (But my advise would be to leave them alone, at least in my 8 “cases”)

They will soon be added to my Portfolio Site . But for now I will post a few at a time here on my blog. Today I’ll give you 3 more. ENJOY.

Personal Project – Temptations part I

Lately I’ve been working on adding still-life in to my photographic vocabulary. The challenge with the project was to be able to transfer my style from my “people”-photography into still-life. As a result I created a new series about temptations. For now it consists of 8 images of everyday things you might need, might think you need or just want. But my advise would be to leave them alone, at least in my 8 “cases”.

They will soon be added to my Portfolio Site . But for now I will post a few at a time here on my blog. ENJOY.
