Nordic landscapes, undiscovered spots, deserted places, and wild nature are the main subjects of my photographs. I find tranquility in mountains, the ocean, fjords, national parks, lava fields, and in rough nature in general, so for me it comes natural to immortalize these unusual forms in my work. By preserving these moments, my aim is to observe the essence of what I experience in my surroundings and this is also my way of holding on to these special places.
