Welcome to my website!

As a photographer I am mostly interested in people,  places and details. My love for old Finnish b&w movies, Italian neorealism and Akira Kurosawa's and Sergei Eisenstein's production partly explain why I photograph as I do. And if you don't  understand Daido Moriyama or Junichiro Tanizaki you don't know me. I welcome your comments. Enjoy.

The picture on the right shows me standing amongst some laundry ladies in 1959. My mother is supposed to stand on the left. They say I  hated that  blue velvet  outfit so much from the very beginning I took it off on  our traditional Midsummer Day Cruise and threw it aboard.

I'm a dad with a wife and one lovely daughter.
