Jenny // Last Hour in Oslo

“Last Hour in Oslo” is a series of double exposures taken through my grandfather’s Rolleiflex with Jenny, my Norwegian soul sister who I’ve known since we first met as teenagers, seven years ago studying in Paris. Weaving in and out of the present moment, these images are simultaneously about shedding the parts of ourselves that we’ve forgiven, while recovering the parts of ourselves we’ve misplaced.

At home in the infinite

 "What a strange feeling, sleeping under the wide sky, that you belong only to the universe. You are back to your habitat, to your original environment, to your native heritage. With that feeling you snuggle down in your blankets content to let ambitions slip and the glory of the world pass you by... At last you are free.  You are at home in the infinite..."

Walking LA

"Could it be that the smog's playing tricks on my eyes or is it a rollerskater in some kind of headphone disguise? Maybe somebody who just ran out of gas, making his way back to the pumps the best way he can."
