Taking turns at sea

I’m editing a series of photos of people in landscapes. Quiet, psychological images talking of introversion and extroversion, contemplative encounters & confrontations. More to come.

A howl from coast to shore

The saddest dog I ever met lived alone on an island you could only reach at low tide. When I visited, he followed me around the island just close enough to keep an eye on me, but at safe distance. He wouldn’t approach my out-stretched hand, no matter how much of my dog-lover’s heart I tried to project. His howl echoed on the wind the morning we left.

Keeping up with a young islander

“Miriam, where’s the road? It’s getting a bit dark.”
“Um… I’m not sure…”

Guided by a wise & spirited 11-year-old girl, along the coast of Norway’s Halsnoy Island, the four of us, travelers from four different countries, ran, jumped and slipped along the rocks last night. Miriam’s playground.

“It’s more fun if you jump!” she says as she bounces away.

Taking a Sunday

My body was feeling broken. I bought new tennis shoes. Purple, white and green. I wore them to Capri, down steep winding paths, in pine-needle-fresh air, then took them off and stood on scratchy, tickling rocks in the ice cold water.

I saw this photo on the way there, or rather I imagined it. At that moment the sun was so bright off the water that I could barely see anything. I took three quick exposures and continued down to find my own little nook in the rocks.
