Clear Signs Where the Future will Not Be

Clear Signs Where the Future will Not Be

Postmo­dernism is a change-or-be-changed world. The word is out: Reinvent yourself for the 21st century or die. Some would rather die than change.” — Leonard Sweet, cultural historian — Lot’s of stuff happening in my small world. Seems sometimes so chaotic and endless — lots of the signs lately have been so negative — and I am not …

Prophesy to the Wind

Prophesy to the Wind

It is a humbling experience to have suddenly thousands and thousands of readers daily taking a peek at your thoughts. Happened to me last week, when WP posted my “Deathwatch” on their front page. I mean, I’m used to having people viewing my images, but not my words so much. They had about a million postings to choose from …

Livefeed from Barcelona: On the Air

Livefeed from Barcelona: On the Air

Last night I came to the hotel and opened a good bottle of wine. Felt like I’d earned it; exhausted but flying: everything just came together in the end. I was so happy. Fast trans­mission, no hickups really, workflow getting better and better, faster and faster. For instance; before I shot the image above (the winner of 100m dash …

Livefeed from Barcelona

This is something I have been working on for a quite a long time and now it’s time to put it into a real field test. Not that the actual technique is so complicated, but it’s been interesting trying to build the workflow so that it is rock solid and easy to use in a hurry and under pressure. What …

Going Totally Wireless with Canon 1D Mk4

I had planned to continue my post on the “suicide of the print”, but due to some change of circums­tances I save that for a later day. I just have to add that thank God I made my presen­tation that day and not later: the photo­graphers I was addressing just swept the table in our POY two days later. Seven …

DocImages — multimedia production

DocImages — multimedia production

This is something I have been planning for over a year — and it finally came the time to do something about it. What I am talking about is DocImages — multi­media production. Sounds kind of formal, somehow very official,doesn’t it? Well, it isn’t — and it’s actually a very simple concept. Very briefly: I got tired of waiting that there …

Levi Alpine WC — Living Multimedia

(UPDATED) Almost two in the morning… Just uploaded the first version of the multi­media project I am doing here in the Levi Slalom World Cup. Presently it has three panoramas 360°x180° and each one has a dedicated narration by Tanja Poutiainen describing different sections of the course. It is displayed on MTV3 website and presently the captions are …

Crossing Borders

Crossing Borders

I have been thinking about my work lately — trying to reflect it in the eyes of the people I have conver­sa­tions with. At the same time, searching for influence and inspi­ration from people I highly respect and whose work I consider to be the absolute best in their field. Allow me to mention two persons (both also …

Creating a Multimedia Interface

Creating a Multimedia Interface

I have been working on this for weeks now — and finally it is opera­tional. And that’s good news, really good news and very important to me. But the bad news (well, not really bad, but annoying): the project I used for creating this is sent to a client for evaluation and I cannot show it at this …
