Oma esittely

As a loner at heart and lover of life I seek to keep a balance between the every day and the colorful life I lead with my adventurous husband. A rootless and nomadic lifestyle is imprinted in my way of thinking and my view on life.

Every image is influenced to some degree by my international life. Every view – be it a landscape or seascape – is a place where I once had a home. Some are of places I have left my heart in and I long to return to those places once more.
Details, light and reflections are glimpses into my childhood or something in the past.
Some topics – like “The Taste of Power” are based on an idea that I need to work on and are visual journeys.
- Some are just short stories with sudden endings - departures and arrivals – just like my life has been – full of abrupt endings and escapes. -

To capture a moment.
To relive things past.
To go back in time.
To breath the air you once did.
To build a bridge between now and then.
