Erikas new book is finally out! Its the second part in the trilogy about the mirrors. Its so very impressive that she is an author, an editor at Elle, an amazing mother and a student of physics at the same time! Get your copy (in swedish) here. I cant wait for the final book to be done…
Old picture of Ellinore Erichsen. I do miss my old Hasselblad 500 CM that was stolen a while ago. I will get a new one very soon. Its kind of funny what happens when you lose all your gear. At first I thought it would make working kind of hard. Turns out its the opposite. I was never as dependent as I thought on the right cameras and flashes. Instead it opened up ideas in a new way.
Helped Paulina with some new images. Those bags are amazing.
Could it be that the idea, and even fear of, meaninglessness and death are both necessary for creative processes. And that meaning historically speaking has been to be seen by (a) god and that in the modern world that has been reduced to just seen, by anybody. And could that mean that the possible death of identity is a modern memento mori? Could explain things I guess.
Some collages I did for dear Paulinas bags. Love mixing photography and collage.
In Paris working. Have a sudden urge to work with letters again. Typography. InDesign. Think I have to start a new project soon.
Just picked up Self Service *37. I have always loved the magazine as much as a magazine can possibly be loved. This issue feels a little bit like it did a couple of years ago (in a very good way). Great photography, great interviews, great design. I always read it back to back. And it always fills me with a special kind of… stamina I guess.
Two things that equally annoy me are when people say “lensed by” when talking about who shot what, and production assistants that feel a need to call out “talent on set” when you walk into a studio in the morning. God!
