You have a very interesting way of bringing people into your work. We especially like the combination and presence of urban landscape, natural landscape and people. Please tell us a little bit about your process. Do you plan your double-exposed shots beforehand, or just take them first and superimpose whatever fits later on?
The earlier multiple exposures I made were digital, and were thrown together from a little bit of listless scrambling. After I got my hands on some film, I started taking double exposures with more intent and purpose - one series I envisioned involved silhouettes of people superimposed with the things that reminded me of them. (Still working on this one.) That being said, some of the double exposures I’ve taken on film were entirely accidental, which is something I love about film - you pay more attention to what you’re shooting and how you’re shooting it, but you still never quite know what you’re going to get.

Object “Förlåt” 110 cm x 720 cm neon and zink
The New Coastway Halmstad
Förlåt is the swedish word for sorry or forgive. The sculpture is powered by its own wind craft and is therefor lit by night.
Personally I experience it every time I drive by it. (“Förlåt” was built in order to be seen from the road nearby.) Driving home in the dark, and suddenly seeing a bright light telling you “Sorry”, for me, its quite special.
