Stories, experiences, friendships, highs, lows, insights, direction. These are some of the things I have either found, or was found by when I left almost everything that defined me behind. I have no home, I own nothing more than I can carry and since November 2009 I have been living on the road. I work as a freelancer–freelance photographer and freelance IT-consultant, freelance everything, to make life on the road possible.
This story, however, was created during a break from life on the road, at home in Copenhagen in summer 2011. Perhaps more fittingly called Moments in the Life Of, rather than a capture of just a single day. Rather than portray my nomad life on the road, this portrays a period of life in Copenhagen; simply because that was where I was at the time this joint Rear Curtain Day in the Life of project was created and captured.
These are some of the moments that made up my days, work related moments and some of the small things I like to do as often as possible no matter where I am in the world. Solitary moments that are special to me such as riding my bicycle, photography, music, walking on the beach, diving, sitting in the sun watching the world, cloud dreaming. Moments from working on my photo book, working as a cinematographer on a music video set. I love riding my bicycle around Copenhagen, and it is what connects all of these moments. Ultimately, I always dream of a galaxy far far away, of a planet with binary suns.
The images are presented in a slightly comic-book surreal fashion as I often feel my life resembles just that. This life on the road is the opposite of my former sedentary office life. It’s often outside of my comfort zone – it can be uncomfortable and is almost always unstable, offering many highs and many lows.
It has taught me more about life, myself and others than I thought possible. I would never have dreamed that the shedding of my previous life and skin would be so hard. The process is ongoing, and a bumpy one, but I am now ready to enter a new phase of my life.
