Dubai & the Emirates

The first Dubai series was released in January 2009 and quickly became a very important part of my portfolio. In October, I spent almost one month in Dubai and the six other Emirates - nicknamed "The Magnificent Seven". I would like to invite you the view the results of my most recent trip to Dubai and the Emirates, by clicking HERE and HERE. Enjoy!

Iceland book - Second Edition

Originally published in late 2006, the Iceland book sold out in less than a year. Signed copies of the first edition were sold for more than $250 on eBay shortly after. We had plans for the re-print since 2007, and now finally, the long-awaited second edition is in production - and as a bonus, it also features previously unpublished Icelandic work. Having already seen a first unbound copy, I can promise the new edition will surpass the first one in printing quality. The book will be available for pre-order from my site beginning January 2010 and it is expected to be shipped out in April 2010. For more infos click HERE.

Jet Airliner

Well hello there, I would like to invite you to view my most recent body of work called "Jet Airliner". These photographs are real, live-action, wide-angle captures of arriving and departing airplanes at the Princess Juliana International Airport in St. Maarten, Dutch West Indies. The airport is one of the busiest in the Caribbean, and even large passenger airplanes such as the Boeing 747 and the Airbus A340 land there. But still there are only a few landings per day, and the 747 lands just twice a week. The whole series "Jet Airliner" was made with my Hasselblad SWC, which is nearly as old as I am. While one can make multiple exposures within a second or two using a digital camera - I was only able to make one shot per plane, which isn't that convenient as these aircraft are coming along with some 250 km/h, even shortly before landing. Click HERE to view the work.

I'm offering this series as editioned prints in three sizes:
50x50cm: Edition of 10
100x100cm: Edition of 5
160x160cm: Edition of 5

I will also be offering a Special Collector's Portfolio Box containing the whole series in 30x30cm prints. Beside this, I will also be releasing the book "Jet Airliner" this September. Details to follow. Thank you, I hope you enjoy this new series, even when it is a bit different from my other work -- comments are appreciated.

Dubai Photographs

In early January, I spent some time in Dubai, photographing new work - especially Cityscapes. The series shows world-renowned buildings and projects, such as The Palm Islands and The World Islands, the Burj al Arab hotel; the Sheikh Zayed Road with it's lined-up skyscrapers, and the Burj Dubai, the world's highest building. A big thanks to Elie, director of a newly-opened gallery in Dubai, for arranging me several things there! Elie's gallery, The Empty Quarter Gallery, will show my work in a solo-exhibition later this year. The exhibit will also include some of the new Dubai stuff. The gallery is located in a really nice location within the Dubai International Financial Centre (DIFC) complex. Click HERE to view the Dubai work!
