It was great to reconnect this summer with a good friend, Nadia, with whom we have studied in Moscow. Many things have happened for both of us during the time we have since each other last time, but the warm link was still there and it is a wonderful feeling when that happens. I was happy to be part of Nadia’s world for some time!
I have been invited again to help out with the CV photos shoot for the people who are currently enrolled in Copenhagen Host Program at the International House. It has been as inspiring as the first time and the weather was on our side, so we could go out and do some shoots outside as well.
Here is a small selection of photos from the day.
We will have another session on September 1, between 13 and 17. Need a CV photo? Contact the Copenhagen Host Program.
I’m excited to announce an opportunity for you to win a free photo shoot. It is easy to enter the draw.
Join us at the Designers’ Collective Christmas Market, which is hosted by Mirins Copenhagen during 28-30 November. Buy a print for at least 250 DKK and leave your name (or business card) in the basket.
I’ll draw a random winner from the available names and cards on Monday, December 1.
Although there will be only one winner for the free photo shoot, but all who will buy a print will get a discount on my services as a photographer.
In case you would like to give a gift to someone, but not really sure what exactly that person wants, you can get a gift card during the Market. The gift card can be used either during the Market to get a print or hire me later on as a photographer.
And remember that by buying prints from the “10th ward project” you directly support people to get care in hospice in Latvia.
It is a win-win for everyone! : )
I would really appreciate if you can spread this info among your friends and colleagues. And I’m looking forward to seeing you personally at the Market!

I’m happy to be part of the Designers’ Collective Christmas Market this year. It is hosted by Mirins Copenhagen.
Friday 28 nov – Sunday 30 nov 10:00 – 18:00 daily
Blegdamsvej 108, Østerbro, Copenhagen
We are a group of artists, designers and craftsmen that will provide you with opportunity to get some really special gifts for your-self and your loved ones! They are all unique, hand-made and local.
I’m going to present the prints from the “10th ward project“: both my series, LyfeCycle, and Broken Friends by Dmitry Bulkin. The proceedings from the sales will go to help the palliative care unit at the Latvian Oncology Center, the only hospice like place in the country. At the Market the prints will be available in different formats: postcards, 20x30cm and 40x60cm. 20x30cm prints are made on Kodak Professional Endura paper, matte finish. 40x60cm prints are exhibition quality prints – some are on the foam and some come with a 5 cm white passepartout – all are ready to be put on the wall. You can see the available prints and also buy them online if you cannot attend the market.
Hope to see you there!
We’ll be ready with gløgg, cookies and a complimentary mini hand spa with Mirins’ delicious scrub and handbalm :)!
A few words about who-is-who in the Market:

Sol Hallset is Norwegian, but moved to Copenhagen after finishing her education at the Art Academy in Bergen. She works mostly with drawing, often in large scale, but she also makes paintings, textile work and writes. Her work is centered around thoughts and theories of the human being and the world we create, and the human figure is often the motif in her work. At the moment she is showing the exhibition “frejdig når du går” in Brorsons Kirke in Copenhagen, and selling smaller prints/works in the shop Vaerkstedet in Blågårdsgade and in different Christmas markets, as well as Mirins.
I’ve been invited to do some product photography at Mirins, Copenhagen – where the shop owner, Jane, creates all sorts of beautiful things to make your daily life full of wonderful smells, sensations and give it a bit of zen.
I have been exploring the wonders of Jane’s creations for a couple of days now and here are some results, but have a few more things still to cover. Stay tuned!
And do drop by at Jane’s shop, Mirins, Blegdamsvej 108, Copenhagen, Denmark. I’m sure you’ll find something for your soul!
I would like to invite you to the Homeless Gallery, an event that our collective, Norse Creative, is organizing within the Copenhagen Photo Festival this year.
The idea with the Homeless Gallery is to enable all artists to publicly show their work, which for different reasons would otherwise not make it to public display.
Artists who cannot afford a gallery, artists who like to experiment, artists who would not think of showcasing their work to other people than family and friends. But also for professional artists who want to show some of their more personal projects.
The exhibition is not curated and open to all artists. Everybody can show their work, professionals, amateurs, students.
There are no entry requirements with regards to theme, format or genre. The exhibition will show work solely based on the artists self-censorship.
The Homeless Gallery has no permanent residence, it appears, opens its doors to the public, only to vanish again after a short while. The exhibition shall be a tribute to the many forms of photography and shall give space to a unique collection of photographical work, which will only exist in this form for a limited time.
This year we expect to host about 35 artists from various countries, residing mainly in Copenhagen, but also coming from London and Amsterdam.
From Friday to Sunday the Gallery will be open from 14.00 till around 22.00 and maybe later!
We have a nice lineup of live music for Friday, June 13th, starting with yours truly as part of the Turkish flute class with our teacher Cahit Ece at 15.00 (I’ll be on the guitar though), later at 17.00 we’ll have Cloos/Lund/Søgaard jazz trio, then around 20.00 – a band called Pierrot le Flou (beautiful music and vocal! not to miss!!) and there will be a DJ duo at the end of the evening…
Saturday is dedicated more to the photography – we will have Dmitry Bulkin from London giving an artist talk during the day and then Erik Schrader will join the Gallery with his artist talk and we’ll hear and see also from two travellers about their project in Uganda.
The Homeless Gallery is hosted by KW3, a project and cultural house for the young entrepreneurs and artists, located in Østerbro.
KW3, Krausesvej 3, 2100 København Ø.
Opening 12 June 2014, 20:00 – 22:00
13 – 15 June 2014, 14:00 – 22:00
