About

Moments Reflected

this project looks into how we relate to ourselves and each other as human beings, how we relate to our memories, our fears and nightmares, our sexuality, our hopes and dreams.

It is a collection of memories, - real or imagined, but they relate to the present as much as to the past.

As my childhood and youth become more distant, they also become more important to me, and therefore in a way closer. And whether real or not, I feel the past is changing, almost as much as the present.

Through my images I aim to look at the past,  - but also at the present, and sometimes allow myself to dream.

Not only to look for answers, but also for more questions.

The book

will be published by Kehrer Verlag Heidelberg Berlin. They also published my Elsewhere project in 2011. 

Norwegian writer Lars Saabye Christensen has generously written a foreword for the book. He is one of Norway´s most prominent writers, having published around 20 novels, numerous collections of poems, dramas and short stories. His works have been published in 22 countries, and he has received a number of prestigious awards, including the Nordic Council´s Literature Prize.

The foreword will be bilingual English / Norwegian.

The book will contain 34 black and white images, printed in four colors. There will be 80 pages, and the size will be 24 x 28 cm. Printing will be done in Heidelberg. Hard cover, cloth covered with tipped in image.

Completion of the book will be by the end of June 2017

Where does the money go?

The amount needed for the publication is around 105.000 NOK (around 11.500 euros). This covers the printing of the book, binding, and shipping to Norway the copies due to me (which I can then send to those of you who pledge 380 NOK or more). Add to this the Kickstarter fee, payment processing fees, and also around 500 Euros for me to travel from Norway  to Heidelberg for the printing. The total goal of the campaign is therefore 117.000 NOK, or approximately 12.500 Euros. 

Your contribution

will be essential to the success of this campaign. Every contribution helps, be it big or small. I hope you will find something interesting in the list of rewards, and feel free to contact me and ask if you have any questions.

If we do not reach the target set for this campaign, this book will not be published. So please help as much as you can!

Even if you are unable to pledge money, it will be a great help if you will  share this campaign in your network, facebook, linked-in, twitter and so on.

I have made a new series called "Past and Present", and ink-jet prints from this series will be available in the intimate format of 7 x 7 cm. You may also select an option where you will receive 5 prints in a hand made box.

True to most of my works, this series is an attempt at looking back, but mainly allowing the past to look at the present. The images are shot letting a digital camera capture the image through the lens and viewfinder of a camera from the 1940´s. The resulting image carries dust and scars that were left inside the prism of the old camera, as markings of the years passed.

Risks and challenges

Kehrer Verlag are ready to publish this book, and if this campaign is successful, the book is expected to be published by the end of June 2017.
I have cooperated with Kehrer before, when publishing my Elsewhere book in 2011, and I find them highly professional and known for publishing books of high quality.

All images are ready to print, the design of the book is already done.
The only thing missing, is funding.

Therefore I can see no great challenges when it comes to completing the project, once the funding is in place.

With your help this will hopefully be done before Christmas this year.
