VARIATIONS IN TREES | LES VARIATIONS DE L’ ARBRES
( Available December 2017 |Disponible Décembre 2017)
– A photographic journey through uncommon compositions of an ordinary subject.
Trees, we often pass them by without even really seeing them –
– Une recherche photographique de compositions autour d’un sujet ordinnaire.
Une arbre qui nous est famillier et à côté duquel on passe sans même le remarquer –
“This book will take you in a graphical journey of subtle colors and structures, because Variations in Trees is a graphical search for the innermost impressions of the Auvergne trees. As you turn the pages, they will lead you in a dance that is both intimately photographic and deeply inspiring” –
“Ce livre va vous transporter au fil d’un voyage graphique fait de couleurs et de formes subtiles. Variations in Trees est une quête graphique des plus profondes impressions issues des arbres d’Auvergne. A mesure que vous tournerez ces pages, vous serez entraînés dans une danse intimement photogénique et d’une inspirante profondeur” –

Just back from ‘the North’, Sweden. I was invited to speak at Camera Natura, Naturfotodagen 6th edition.
A nice festival with a warm and cozy atmosphere and an enthusiastic audience. The staff from Camera Natura (Conny Constan Jonsson, Patric Carlsson and Anette Edefalk) with their volunteers make you feel ad home immediately .
The auditorium was packed with visitors who were warmly welcomed by Henrik Ekman, he introduced all the speakers and made a kind summery via questioning the photographers at the end of each presentation. During the breaks you could visit the exhibition room (Magnus Elander thanks for taking care of the speakers expo) with some great expo’s or enjoy the delicious Swedish cakes. The carrot cake was my favorite !
The other speakers: Serkan Günes, Mats Andersson, Tore Hagman, Josefin nilsson, Magnus Nyman. Although I could not understand their presentations it was nice to see their work!
Thank you all for your nice feedback, compliments, great talks, conversations and laughter’s !
