He is a timelapse photographer working from the co-working space at LYNfabrikken.
What do you do?
“I bend and warp time and motion! Timelapse basically means taking hundreds of photos in one location and combining them to create a video, that shows time passing very fast. Like moving clouds, traffic or day to night-transitions. It has a potential to show something that you can’t see with the naked eye. A sort of hyper reality and a compressed version of the world. It provides a unique perspective; like a night sky, where you can actually see the moon move rapidly across the sky. My work means a lot of trial and error, honing my skills, getting out in the field, trying and testing new things. It is awesome.”
What would you like to do?
“I like to travel and I would love to combine my work with travelling more. For sure I would love to do timelapse in grand nature around the world. But also strange and lesser known places appeal to me. I have my timelapse-eyes set on several unique locations around the world. I look for a combination of amazing architecture, urban settings, unique nature and other things. Elements that hold potential for beautiful framings of cityscapes, moving shadows, lights and people living their lives.”
What are you into?
“Fly fishing! I have been fishing since I was a kid, and eventually I made the transition into fly fishing – the hardest way to catch a fish. In a sense you can say that there is a relation between the perfectionism and sense of detail in my work and in my relation to catching fish; finding the perfect and most beautiful solution. Always.”
