Entangled

Some times in life you feel trapped in a situation that you don’t know how to handle. Leaves you feeling suffocated. You can’t get free even if you struggle as hard as you can to get loose. Those feelings of helplessness and suffocation was the inspiration for this portrait I made some time ago.

Broken wings of destiny

Every now and then you have to take decisions that will change your path in life. Or circumstances will make the decisions for you. Changing the course forever. Or at least for a while. Sometimes these decisions are easy. Sometimes they are very hard. But in the end when the decision has been made. By you or others. The only way is forward.

Portraits

It has been a while since a took a self portrait. So yesterday when the light was soft and just perfect I took out my camera and my tripod and shoot a few images. I need to change some profile pictures on social media and because I’m a photographer I can do a portrait shoot when ever (almost ) I want! Lucky me!

Do you want a portrait of yourself or a loved one? Contact me.

The withering of the lonely soul

Time flies really fast. Outside the leaves is beginning to show on trees and bushes and spring flowers are shooting up like shining stars from the darkness of the soil. And soon it’s warm enough to run bare foot on dewy meadows! Ooh, I love, love this time of year! It’s like a dark blanket has been taken away and light reemerges.

Spring and summer are my most loved seasons of the year! But when the winter still had his cold hands on my frozen soul I made this portrait.  I call this “The withering of the lonely soul”.

The return of Persephone

In Greek mythology the goddess of spring growth was Persephone. When she was a girl she was seized by Haides and carried off to the underworld as his bride. After that she had to spend a part of the year with her husband in the underworld. She did return to the earth every year in spring and as she returned the meadows was flowering.

The attempt to see the light without knowing darkness

Society controls us on how we should behave and look. We do as we are expected. Fear of what others think makes us kill our souls piece by piece for every year that passes. Makes us never reach to our full potential. There is so much more to life than follow paths that we are “supposed” to and fulfill the dreams of others. Instead make your own dreams and lay down your own path. Live life to the fullest.

“The attempt to see the light without knowing darkness” is the second piece I’m sharing with you of my new series. The last one I showed you was this “The birth of a woman”.

Have you ever wondered how I create my fine art portraits? I don’t always have a clear vision of the finished portrait. Sometimes it’s a process where I take a mood of a background I want to use. And step by step as I tweak and make creative decisions I end up with a portrait that I love. For this portrait I started with the photo below.

This one has come a long way, hasn’t it?
