I have been lucky enough to have been asked by the Knife for the use of one of my photographs for the promotion of their US tour. I feel very honoured, I’m a big fan of them ever since I first came to Sweden 11 years ago. If you live in the States you should check them out at Coachella. The live show is phenomenal. The link is here.
My good friends of M&E (Mathew Bolger & Emelie Lidström) had their first solo exhibition in Malmö on June 7th at Galleri Rostrum. It runs for the whole month of June. If you are in the area please head down as there are some great pieces on display and for sale. Particular favorites are the Masks triptych and the Diysco installation. I was lucky enough to get to photograph the pieces plus the opening, but nothing beats seeing them in reality. The gallery is below. Bands playing were Bodebrixen from Denmark and Goodtime from Ireland. A great interview is to be found by the couple on Thin Air.
I haven’t updated my blog in a while. I took a break, due to the fact my wife giving birth to my baby boy. All is good and he’s growing quick. The exhibition was a success. I sold a few of my paintings and received positive response from the owners of the space and from the public. I will be getting back into my painting swing shortly. I have a few ideas and themes. Possibly I will paint in colour. We will see how they turn out.
In the meantime, I am currently working on my portfolio website for my photography work. Which I hope to have up in the next month. It will be hosted on Cargo Collective so expect a classy feel.
I have also recently joined up with thethinair.net as a contributing photographer. It’s a new global music and culture website based in Belfast, N. Ireland. My first feature was of the artist Jape recording in his studio in Malmö. I hope to do a lot more features in coming month. The link is above this post.
On a side note I’ve been busy cataloguing all my analogue photography. There is a lot to go through but you got to start sometime.
The view from my window tonight. I do love a bit of snow.
