I grew up with a tradition that there were two days in a year when you could expect gifts; at Christmas and on your birthday. Well, my birthday is still to come this year, but it seems that Bresson is used to Christmas several times a year.
On one of my assignments last week I visited the small place Minnesund. A well known landscape architectural office based in Oslo is cultivating parts of the railway and roads in this area, and they asked me if I could take some photos of the process.
It was last summer, when I packed four of my ten R-lenses and my black Leica R8 into my photo-bag and headed out to my birthplace in Poland. On board 70 Kodak Portra 400 films, which got used up to the last roll in the last minute on the plane back to Norway. I enjoy working with my analogue Leica R8.
The new Astrup Fearnley Museum in Oslo opens soon and it could easily become another landmark beside the Opera. Ordered by the brothers Selvaag and designed by the Italian architect Renzo Piano, it will pride the waterfront scenery at Tjuvholmen.
Our Leica ambassador Damian Heinisch is going to exhibit at Fotomessen in Lillestrøm between the 2nd and 4th of March. He will show 13 images in total, which represents a small extraction of his recent ongoing personal project.
