All you need is fog

These photos were all taken early on today. It was quite foggy here in Aarhus and I’ve been walking for hours taking pictures, with no route in mind. I just followed the light. Until my socks got wet from getting into weird places and I started freezing.

But it was a nice day.

Spooktober shots – top 10

The days are getting darker, it has been raining a lot.

Sometimes the rain lasts for days and most people would agree that there is nothing better than having a warm cup of coffee (or tea) and to binge-watch your favourite series on Netflix. But despite of all the cosiness of being home, there are beautiful things going on outside at this time of the year. I love to take pictures on the edge of darkness and to capture the autumn atmosphere, even though some days it does feel like it takes a great effort and I have to drag myself out of my comfort zone… Luckily I managed to go out and take my photo-walks on the neighbourhood. These are October’s favourites shots:

Art on a postcard

Hello out there,

For those of you interested in seeing my work and who might be in the UK, I am participating in the “Photography on a postcard 2017” exhibition in London. It takes place at theprintspace and it will run until 24th October. So, if you’re in town, there is still a chance to check it out.

The exhibition counts with some prestigious photographers such as Martin Parr, Wolfgang Tillmans, Simon Norfolk, Tom Hunter, Chris Steele Perkins and many other upcoming talents. All the money will go to the Hepatitis C Trust’s fundraising arm. Check more information on Art on A Postcard.
Værsgo!

 

A trip to Lisbon

 

This photo series is a result of my personal experience as a Brazilian expat living in Europe who visited Portugal for the first time. The pictures here presented invite the viewer to witness what I once witnessed with my own eyes for the first time – or did I? Isn’t it all what we see just a construction, a culmination of all what we’ve seen before?

 

 

 

 

A certain ambiguity is a common ground that tight these images together. They present a stretch of the reality and they do not aim to describe it or fill in the gap between what is real and what is my perception of it – they rather open up for new possibilities and interpretations that the viewer has the freedom to fill in. In this sense, all photographic work has a potential to be surreal, given that it never presents the facts – it is always a point of view which presents relationships between elements that once were part of the reality.

 

 

 

 

* This is part of an ongoing project, which I started editing and invited a friend to collaborate. Stay tuned!

On going project: night photography

So, it is time for some more night photography. And if you saw a bit of my posts before, you have seen that I usually like to take pictures at night.

 

Earlier this week I submitted some night photos to the Lensculture Streetphotography awards. You can see my photos here. 

I particularly think it is nice to send some material, regardless of being published or chosen by their jury. It is a nice way to be part of a broad network and I found many cool subscriptions and references of other photographers too. So, that’s nice.

These pictures were not included, though. I just took them after my subscription 🙂

Story-in | Vrå Højskole

I’ve been at the spoken-word festival Story-in last weekend at Vrå Højskole where I was camping with my husband and friends. It was a very nice experience, we had a bus ride to Løkken and Lønstrup beaches and the authors read their texts surrounded by the beautiful landscape. There is an article about the festival, where my photos were published at Aarhuslit.

I was surprised by how the school is a nice and inspiring place! The location would be perfect for a David Lynch movie, I would say. Just look at it!

 

 

 

 

 

Sofie Nilsen @tonefromdenmark did an outstanding presentation on Saturday evening. She created soundscapes that shaped the mood of the place, while the authors, one by one, came to read their texts.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

And overall I had some nice encounters with pets during the festival, not bad. I would not mind coming back next year, the whole thing feels like just taking a vacation while experiencing the readings and discussions about literature. It is definitely worth a visit!
