One Hundred & Sixty Three

a few months back i read an article on some english newspapers website about an exhibition that was being put up with the photographic work of artist dieter roth. roth walked the streets of reykjavik, capturing his view of the houses in the city. the project ended up being some 31.000+ slides of houses in rvk and some say every house in the city was captured by roth. reading the article i got a little inspired and decided to go for a little walk in the snow and photograph a small street in my hometown called austurgata or east st. all in all it was freezing but fun.

One Hundred & Sixty Two

after i got some films from reykjavik music mess back from the lab last month i uploaded them onto the computer right away and for some reason just forgot about them. was looking over them this morning and decided to post a few frames from the few rolls that i shoot during the festival. black and whites are shot on the ilford hp5 and the color photos are shot on a kodak 400vc. you can also check out a full blown review of the festival over at , big thanks to the folks at reykjavik grapevine for helping us out with that.

One Hundred & Sixty

if there is one album that i have been waiting to come out of the oven for a long time, its borko´s sophomore album and now it sounds like the wait is coming to an end. after hearing some of his new material on tour with seabear and sin fang a few years back, i´ve wanted to hear more, much more. this winter borko aka björn kristjánsson has been busy in his petite studio recording new songs and getting some amazing musicians to collaborate in the process. a few weeks ago i dropped by the studio and caught a few frames when sóley did her thing on the accordion. then last week it was time to get some live borko action when the band opened up for apparat organ quartet. and if you find yourself in reykjavik on the 16th and 17th of april make sure you check out the citys newest music festival, reykjavik music mess.

One Hundred Fifty Nine

sometimes documenting the preparation before a fashion assignment turns out to be just as much fun as the actual assignment. at least that was my experience the other day when i took these photos.

One Hundred Fifty Five

last week i shot this portrait of icelandic football player jóhann laxdal, who plays for stjarnan FC in the icelandic premier league for a german football magazine called 11 freunde. laxdal and his teammates have been celebrating goals this summer in a rather unique way. one of these celebrations is the salmon fishing one and can be viewed here, this one has around 500.000 views and there are more. the magazine went to print at the end of last week, so i might have the tear sheet posted later this week when i get a copy of it. click on the photo to view larger.
