I wish to take the great liberty of categorizing myself as a genreless photographer. I photograph everything that occurs to me to photograph - portraits, landscapes, "decisive moments". What determines whether the image is saved or not is whether it can be categorized under either "enjoyable composition" or "emotion worth sharing". I am a self-taught photographer but inspired by a large number of photographers, such as Irving Penn, Elliot Erving, Vivian Maier, Sally Mann and Henri Cartier Bresson. Through my profession as a freelance gynecologist and obstetrician in different countries, I have had the opportunity to meet many different people from different cultures and also the opportunity to photograph fantastic landscapes (Lofoten, Vesterålen, the Faroe Islands, Greenland, etc.).

I print all my photos myself  Fine art paper as I wish to keep the quality as high all the way from camera (usually Leica) to finished print. I have had two solo exhibitions, partly at Kosters Trädgårdar (South Coast), partly at Sjöboden in Brevik (Norway), both in the summer of 2022. I have published the photo book OCLUST in the spring of 2022 and the book THE FAROES(E) in 2019.
