A Saturday Afternoon at the Café Viking

Café Viking, Nørrebro (Copenhagen), a couple of years ago.

An ordinary danish bodega, smoky and cosy, people playing billiards, others chat, drinking beer. A not-so-ordinary Saturday afternoon, because it was the first after the gang who threatened the area was put to an end. The two ladies who own the café exposed the gang . . . → Read More: A Saturday Afternoon at the Café Viking

Dominoes in Copenhagen (1. aug 2013)

Dominoes 2013

1st August 2013, 7000 60cm tall plaster bricks in downtown Copenhagen, placed some fifty centimenters apart.

Four thirty p.m.: the first brick falls down, pushing the second, and then the third, and… All the domino bricks fall, one after another. Silently (surprising silently!), and rather slowly.

It took some thirty minutes in total . . . → Read More: Dominoes in Copenhagen (1. aug 2013)

Graffiti in Enghave Brygge

graffiti in Enghave Brygge

Few weeks ago, I went out to take some photos with others, and we ended in a former industrial area here in Copenhagen (now waiting for new buildings as a living quartier). It’s completely in ruins, and the survived walls are covered in graffiti, some of which still in progress. I took some photos . . . → Read More: Graffiti in Enghave Brygge

People at Thorvaldsen Museum

thorvaldsen museet - meetup

As I said many times, I love stealing souls, images of people in their everyday life. Possibly private moments. And a museum, an exhibition or a similar place are perfect places to shoot this kind of photos. Their attention is well far away from the photographer, and the faces, the bodies are relaxed and natural.

Thorvaldsen Museum in Copenhagen

thorvaldsen museet - meetup

One day at the Thorvaldsen museum in Copenhagen. Bertel Thorvaldsen is one of the most famous danish sculptors, and one of the well known neo-classicist of the XIX century (the only non-catholic who has a statue put in S.Peter church in Rome). I’m not really interested in that style, but statues and reliefs are . . . → Read More: Thorvaldsen Museum in Copenhagen

“Sculpture by the sea” – art in Århus (2011 edition)

sculpture by the sea 2011

After two years, the Summer 2011 carried in Århus the “Sculpture by the Sea“, a rather big open-air exhibition of modern art on the strand south of the city centre. And like two years before, I went and took some photos (HERE the post from 2009).

Many handworks were well blended in the landscape, creating . . . → Read More: “Sculpture by the sea” – art in Århus (2011 edition)

Oysters pickers

13-1159r41

Few weeks between October and November are the best period for collecting oysters in the North Sea. On low tide, one can pick the clams with bare hands, having few hours before the sea level raises again. In 2011 we went in Mandø, a small island by the west coast of Jylland, in Denmark, connected . . . → Read More: Oysters pickers
