After more than 40 years as a storytelling photographer I have progressively felt the wish to approach fine art photography. I have already had the great pleasure to present several personal exhibitions at Ulvsunda Castle and Högberga Garden. Today, my pictures are hanging on the walls of Häringe Castle, Högberga Garden, KarlabyKro and Grand hotel Saltsjöbaden. I have with my own eyes witnessed a lot of people choosing to spend time and stop at my pictures. I have experienced the joy of shipping off a large wooden box with my framed photos, destination New York, where they are now hanging on some wall in Manhattan.

In the glimpses between wakefulness and dream, my mind is constantly creating new pictures. In the forest, in Florence, in New York, everywhere, I see photographs I want to take. Moments. Glimpses.

Just to get the opportunity to freeze the moment and hand it to someone else. To someone who sees the same beautiful moment as I did. And want to preserve it. I have often wondered what it is that pushes me. It is perhaps my emotional life, maybe I photograph my inmost, my memories, my experiences, my dreams and my fantasies. I simply can not resist…
