"I am interested in light. How the light falls. What happens in a room when the daylight breaks through. How the shadows play. Reflections.
I am fascinated by the light in paintings of Dutch and Danish masters as Vermeer and Hammershöi.
The pictures in the serie Moments are mainly from Paris, New York and London. Cities where I met many interesting people and had the opportunity to visit their homes. A sensuous tone connect the diverse scenes: interiors and snapshots in urban surrondings, brittle flowers and fading garden rooms.
My latest serie Omtanke, is essentialy shot in an unique house in Skåne, south of Sweden. From time to time the rooms are full of life, but remain untouched. Time is allowed to be still."
