The truly amazing pop star Asbjørn photographed for August issue of Højskolebladet (DK).
Extract from the article in Danish. Words by Sofie Buch Hoyer.
Opvæksten på højskolerne i Testrup og senere Ry var ifølge Asbjørn Toftdahl Terkelsen med til at redde hans barndom. Musikalsk blev han i hjemmet flasket op med Paul Simon, Sting og polyrytmik, mens han selv fandt inspiration i Spice Girls, Destiny’s Child, Britney Spears og senere Robyn. Lige præcis den kombination af musik, bevægelse og dans satte gang i hans flagrende krop og gav ham i en tidlig alder modet til at udtrykke sig frit, hvor end han var.
“Jeg er vokset op med den kropslighed og intuition, der hersker på en højskole. Højskolen er et sted, hvor man hele tiden er i bevægelse. Personligt, fordi man siger ja til at blive et ‘vi’ i stedet for et ‘jeg’. Og i fællesskab, fordi man konstant bevæger sig sammen og bliver bevæget af hinanden,” siger Asbjørn og fortsætter:
“Jeg har altid danset mig vej gennem tilværelsen. Jeg kan mærke, hvad der er rigtigt, når jeg bevæger mig og bruger min krop.”

My contribution to Visual Wanderings by the Norwegian photographic platform Objektiv.
This is a collage made by a software error in my Photoshop and moderated by me. The original image is of a wildfire close to my childhood neighbourhood from where I spend most of the first lockdown in the spring of 2020. Both the wildfire, the pandemic and the software error reminds me of forces outside the human influence.
Objektiv invites photographers from all over the world to create art that responds to our new situation: what does the lock-down mean for their work, what is important for them to convey, and what are their reflections on the time to come? Contributions can take any form, from a photograph to words, a series of pictures or a meme.
Thanks a lot to Nina Strand from Objektiv and to Tobias Nicolai for inviting me along on this fine project.

Ten years ago I met a talented young man with a guitar and something important to say. He had just started the band Ulige Numre and needed some band pictures. We collaborated on several occasions after that; did PR photos and I followed him and his band on tour. We also did their first two music videos together. Their first single 'København' became an instant classic and since then Carl Emil Petersen has written songs that are now dear to all of Denmark. He will celebrate his first decade on the Danish music scene with a tour in 2021. It's nostalgic to see one of my old portraits of him on the tour poster.
See tour dates and links for tickets at his facebook page.

The radio show Nattely on national youth radio Radio Loud, asked me about the magic and nostalgia of analog photography. I had a nice chat with the hosts about technique, mistakes and the excitement of picking up your analog films from development.
