Chickentown meets Josefine

I tell people that I come from a small village, but that's not really true, I'm actually from outside a small village. This place is called Hönsholma and if you would want to translate that into English it would be something like Chickentown. But I have never seen a chicken in my life there. But this summer I saw a big beautiful field of corn there. I drove past it everyday and saw the plants get bigger and bigger and more and more beautiful. So before I left this summer I had to have photo shoot there. I called the farmer who owns the land and he totally agreed with me, that it would be cool to take pictures there and he gave me his blessing. So all I had to do now was to find a model. I called in a dear friend of mine. Her name is Josefine and she is from the same village. We have been friends for many years now and I don't get to see her as much as I wanted. It was wonderful to create something together again...

Cosima in Berlin

I don't live in Berlin anymore, Malmö is now my city. But like NY, Berlin has definitely left it's mark on me. It is a wonderful place and I will go back for sure. During my stay I met so many interesting and cool people and I hope I will be able to stay in contact with them. And even if I don't get to see them as often as I wish I have photos of them (of course!). I worked so much this summer that I only had one opportunity to visit my former city. While I was there I took portrait of this girl you see. It was the second time I photographed Cosima and this time we stayed indoors in my boyfriends apartment. I can't remember what the weather was like but when I look at the photos it feels like it was raining outside. But that could also just be something I am imagining. I like these photos because they have a silence in them that is both calming and worrying. What do you think?
