Camera obscura

I made my first picture using camera obscura techniques in my darkened living room in 1991. In setting up a room to make this kind of photograph, I cover all windows with black plastic in order to achieve total darkness. Then, I cut a small hole in the material I use to cover the windows. This allows an inverted image of the view outside to flood onto the walls of the room. I would focus my large-format camera on the incoming image on the wall and expose the film. In the beginning, exposures took five to ten hours.

Winter solstice

…in icelandic, christmas is “jól”, which has nothing of christianity in it but is believed to be from way before that and I have heard some theories that is related to the word “hjól” or “wheel”. It is about winter solstice and reminds us of how the seasons roll wheel like forwards: it is a celebration of the days getting a little longer and the light returning. I have always absolutely adored christmas, for me it is the time when I sense harmony best.
