About a year ago I shot the first material to the the image that would become Landfall. Although the final image contains about 230 layers it didn’t take me a year to make it. Instead I learned that liquid is very hard to work with. I wanted this image to turn out as realistic as possible and therefor I knew that I had to build a model of the scene and actually apply liquid to it. I do spend a lot time in photoshop but I always try to capture as much as I can in camera. Read the full article
This post is about building a computer specialized for Photoshop. Perhaps a bit nerdy but I wanted to show you that it’s not that complicated. Read the full article

This is a project I’ve had in mind for a long time. I wanted to create a happy place within a bottle, drifting away. A few months ago I found a nice bottle at a flee-market in Berlin, when I saw it I knew that it was time to try to realize this project.
Last Monday I did some live retouching of people waiting at a bus stop in Sweden. The event is part of the upcoming CreativeDay in Stockholm on Tuesday. I’m also invited as a speaker to the event and the talk will be available Live online on Tuesday here: http://www.adobecreativedays.com/
Last week I spoke at the Adobe MAX conference in Los Angeles about my work. I want to show that it’s all about the material you have to create something, not the camera itself but imagining how something could be captured. Capturing the imaginable and realizing the impossible, what you can imagine is what you can create. Have a look at the video below… Read the full article
Behind the scenes video of my latest creation Cut & Fold, from shooting to final photo. The post production took about 15 (effective) hours, the clip contains a selection of that process played back at 80 times normal speed. Video was filmed and cut by me, music by Justice – New Lands (Falcon remix). Enjoy.
In the summer of 2012 I was contacted by the event agency Awesome Project about doing a commissioned perspective illusion for the 5:th anniversary of the shopping gallery “Skrapan” in Stockholm, Sweden. Since it’s one of the tallest buildings in Stockholm they wanted to incorporate the 85 m view from the top of the building in the illusion. The idea was that it would be like standing on the top of the building looking out and down. I went to Stockholm to take measurements and do the necessary preparations. It was put up at the location 28:th September 2012 and will be up for a couple of weeks outside the gallery in Stockholm. If you’re in Stockholm in October, please come by and have a look for yourself!

I created ”A painting too real” 4 years ago, I had several ideas on how I could realize it but I was limited by my knowledge and experience. I’ve learned a lot over the past years regarding lighting, camera and post production and I felt it was time for another version. This is not part II, it’s just a different take on the initial idea.
This is a photo I’ve worked with for the past months. I’ve never really worked with fire so I saw it as an experiment. The idea was to let the lamp beam cut through basically anything that would come in its way. As it would be quite hard to shoot the fire at the location in the apartment I knew that I had to build it up piece by piece.
