When having my portrait painted I don't want justice, I want mercy.


Say hello to the friendly photographer; Sofie Eidsmo. She led me out on a frozen lake last week and made me stare into her camera obscura. Her goal for the day was to get a good portrait of yours truly; not just another picture of me. (There's enough of that out there already, isn't it?) I think she accomplished that quite well, actually - more than well. That's why I chose to share all these with you today. Sofie is a very artistic soul, studying at one of Oslo's creative schools, and was a part of the team that did the G-Star Raw series a while back. You should check out her new Facebook page, if you have a minute or two!

That said; a portrait is supposed to reflect the essence of a person. It's not a snapshot. Not an outfit picture. Some people even believe that if you take a person’s picture, you steal their soul. Or a piece of it. What do you think these pictures say about me?

  4. They are truly beautiful! And you too of course. You really get drawn into the pictures. Makes me think of that one photo, way back, when you also wrote something about a piece of your soul being caught in it.
    Love, Änglamark.
