WEEK COLLECTION 22

2017, Photography, thoughts

The titles of my more or less recent blogposts feel ought in relation to the photographs I share. I think my thoughts are newer and even more relevant than my photographs.

The thing is that so much has happened, especially family life. At some point I couldn’t enjoy things I did and took place around me. It really took a while before I realized that.

I just don’t take many photographs now, making photographs even less so. Writing is not easy and finding proper words even more.

I’m now working on it. Finding energy, willingness, piece by piece. Nothing is lost, it all takes time and I shouldn’t be in any hurry.

In the meantime I try to keep posting on this irregular basis. The sun shines while I’m writing, and I like that.

2017, Photography, thoughts

Untitled-182

I admit not being very productive in photography. I sort of neglected my blog and have hardly taken any photographs. In my mind though I’ve still been thinking about photography.

I’m however gradually picking up an older project I did about my hometown and surrounding area. Some seven to six years ago I started this project in B&W, but I want to redo it in color now. So maybe, at some point I will start posting some of this work from this project.

On the general photography front sometimes you hit something that makes complete perfect sense. Even if the thoughts about this topic are actually quite old. Thoughts first mentioned in the 1920’s by Alfred Stieglitz. I’m talking about the theory of equivalence in photography. Read this article to get an idea about the concept of equivalence. And get an idea how modern this idea was in the 1920’s and how this concept slowly gets traction again.
