“Looking back at a photographic career spanning over 30 years provokes many thoughts. I have done so much. The photographs become like a diary of meetings, people and contexts that suddenly spring to life again. I always say, “let life come to you instead of trying to control everything.” I want energy and movement in my images, because that’s how life is. Exhibiting this retrospective at Fotografiska makes me incredibly proud.”
