1980 Sundsvall, Sweden. Lives and works in Gothenburg, Sweden.
This concept emerged at a time when I was insecure about the potencial of photography. I felt that I had to deal with my role or give up taking pictures. My possition behind the lens had become too safe, it did not put anything at risk and without risking anything how could I claim attention, exhibition space, public space or whatever. I strongly felt that I had to risk something or maybe everything. Somehow I had to get more involved with the picture.
The result became documentations of performances, 10 seconds long (or should it be 10 seconds short). I have tryed to differentiate these from the esthetics of the 60 and 70`s performance art that I like so much. Wich aimed at emphasizing that the picture merly was the documentation of a staged event. I want to make both events equally important, with carefully planed composition, colours, light and digital retusch. I find it productive and interesting working with a contradictive method, with and against a strict set of rules, letting chance have an important impact on the final result.
