One of the photos I took of my grandma during the #ArtstreetHbg festival earlier this summer ended up in print again. This time, in the cute little folder about Kulturveckan which kicks off in November. The theme will be “freedom”, and it’s kind of nice to have my grandma in there on page one since she grew up in what was eastern Germany for some time. In a way, this photo makes me feel like she finally got to stick it to the man, in a weird roundabout way. Graffiti and street art is all about freedom and bending of rules and conventions, so I think this photo was a good choice for representing freedom. And I’m happy for myself to of course. It’s always nice to see your photos end up in print.
Documenting this years Passage-festival (one week of “street-theathre” in Helsingborg & Helsingör) was a blast. I met so many amazing people on the job, both performers and spectators. Street-theatre really brings out the best in (most) people and there were so many golden moments to capture. I mainly filmed the events but there were times when a photograph just did the job better. These are some of my favourite moments.
When I documented the ArtstreetHBG streetartfestival I mainly shot film. But sometimes I did actally turn the wheel on my Canon from video to photography and ended up with a few shots I really came to like. These are some of my favourites.
I had a meeting in town this morning so I thought I’d take the chance to get some photos of town before everything’s up and running. You know it’s summer when regular people are out smoking and drinking at 9 a.m.
