I was born in the far-away lands of subarctic Scandinavia on a Thursday in September, back when internet barely existed and cell phones were as big as building bricks. An old lady once told my mum that as a Thursday kid I would turn out to become a wanderer, according to old folk beliefs. She never stuck around long enough to be able to see how right she was, but my veins early showed signs of being pumped with wanderlust.
Later in life I picked up a camera and today traveling, adventure and photography are my greatest passions in life, especially combined. I love to tell stories and to capture the charm and beauty in every place I go. That is basically what this blog is about.
The world through my aperture.
In 2012 I bought a one way ticket to Peru without much of a plan. Since then I’ve turned photography into my profession, won a prestigious global photography award, been published and featured in various magazines and online platforms including The Guardian, BBC, The Globe and Mail and the NZ Climber, and have had my work exhibited at the Royal Geographic Society in London. The lesson I’ve learnt along the way? Dare to dream to the point that your dreams scare you, otherwise they aren’t big enough.
Regardless of how you found me, whether you know me from before or not, feel free to join the ride. Leaving a trace or two in the process will put a smile upon my face.
