Sign of Life

Dear all, apologies for not having written and posted anything for so long. Appreciate your the emails received, rest assured all is fine over here, it’s just there are times in one’s life when one has to set priorities that are not always compatible with everyday life. And then there is the family. What’s more important in life than time with one’s family.

Made a major decision recently, and boy am I excited. Partnered up with a consumer tech project that might well make waves. We’re currently looking for the main round series A funding, so if you have access to capital and a soft spot for ideas that change the way we go about our daily lives and interact, well then better contact me!

THEME isn’t dead at all, this site is a labor of love and it will change its face over time. Been traveling a lot lately, and the longer I live photography the clearer it gets that — to me at least — photography has little to do with gear, but much with how I approach life and people per se.

Meaning, some of the most boring photography currently comes out of my most expensive gear while playfulness and the occasional odd thing in images are often a result of a playful and odd approach to photography, commonly done with inconspicuous, unimpressive gear.

Take this soap bubble image, shot with a camera phone — just have to be there, that’s it:

Again, thanks for the quiet, yet steady support. Reader stats are very nice, thousands of people tune in daily to read the live rumors and news feeds, and of course read former topics. Got tons of ideas about new topics that you can only read on THEME. So tune in now and then, there is always something going on here.

Take good care,
