"Photography speaks the language of sight and I cannot speak this language"
Riika from Finland was born blind. I met her in Copenhagen a couple of years ago and decided to do a photo project on one of my greatest fears - becoming blind. I this project I was aiming to photograph the impossible - what Riika was seeing.

Thank you Riika. For the talks, the walks and for explaining me your world. a world beyond sight.

This project was exhibited in a group exhibition in Copenhagen, at Fabrikken for Kunst og Design, spring 2008.

On my hard disc there are many secrets. The next couple of weeks I will post some old photo projects. Because some of them have been hiding on my hard disc way too long...

There's something about this picture.

it makes me want to run barefoot on a beach. and to be five again.

I shot this picture while living in Copenhagen and I remember there was something about this girl in the green raincoat that captured my interest. the raincoat was too big. the girl so silent.. she was in her own world. the girl and her shadow... two and one at the same time. so beautiful. so perfect.

this is why i love photography. being able to capture a moment and watch that moment again and again. the girl in the green raincoat had no idea I was photographing her. today she must be around eight. This blog post is for this girl.

...and for all the lost moments that was never photographed. this is not one of them.
