”Please stop and look into my eyes, it’s something I wish to tell you”

In this project I’ve chosen to portray young people. To capture the moment after they reveal something to me. It could be something that happened or will happen during the day or just what they are thinking of or just a personal feeling. I worked with my Hasselblad camera because the slow analog technique changes my meetings with the children. I have to wait, to listen and to be mindful of what the children expose.

In previous projects, I have chosen to photograph only children I know to capture a certain emotion. Now I also have meet unknown children. My aim is to induce people to allocate some of their time for the ”portraits” we encounter every day. So many stories that are to be told and the need for someone listening.
