  1. New normal

    10 May 2020

    New Normal, Stockholm 2019 I’ve lost count of the number of days since the sequester started.  When I consider it, I come to something like 60 days time has a funny way of playing tricks on you when you’re in a situation like this one.  The days don’t really start…


  2. My love, my life

    24 Feb 2020

    My love my life, Los Angeles 2019 Valentine’s Day has come and gone and while I write about a lot of different subjects here I rarely, if ever mention how much my wife means to me. Anna Maria and I have been connected at the hip since 1998. Those 20…


  3. Relax

    18 Feb 2020

    Relax, Los Angeles 2019 When I still lived in Sweden, this was always the worst time of the year.  Christmas had come and gone.  New Years had come and gone.  It was neither winter nor spring.  It would snow and then the temperature would rise and the snow would melt…


  4. Learning To Fly

    17 Dec 2019

    Learning to Fly, 2019 As the year 2019 comes to a slow, inevitable close, I’m struck by the sudden desire to start photographing again.  I can’t really say that I ever stopped–I carry a camera with me every day to work.  I shoot images on the weekends out with the…


  5. Alternative realities

    10 Oct 2019

    Alternative Realities, LA, 2018 I think communication has been hacked…   Not all communication of course, but masses of it, especially when it comes to what is actually happening in the world.  I’m not talking about Russian Facebook ads or the 2016 election hacking, I’m talking about the root of the…


  6. Look here

    30 Sep 2019

    Look Here, Los Angeles, 2018 I’m fighting the impulse that people–a vast majority of people by my humble reckoning–are not capable of deciding what is in their best interest.  Maybe my attitude is a product of the twenty-four-hour-cable-news-cycle-pandemic that’s currently infecting anyone with the remotest interest in current events.  It’s…


  7. Muse-ums

    17 Sep 2019

    Muse-ums, LA 2018 There’s a quick simple story behind this image that I rather like.  I made this image during a trip to the Marciano to see Yayoi Kusama’s ”with all my love for the tulips, I pray forever.”   We were just about to leave the exhibit after having shot…


  8. The process

    01 Sep 2019

    When I saw this wall of sketches by Jesper Waldersten at Fotografiska in Stockholm I was completely in awe of the dedication it takes to ones art to make sketch after sketch after sketch, searching desperately for that spark—for that connection to a feeling that goes as quickly as it…


  9. Gentle monster

    31 Jul 2018

    Gentle Monster close, Los Angeles  2017 Gentle Monster far, Los Angeles  2017 On the day that I made these images, I remember thinking that I had never experienced a sun shining so bright–nor, for that matter, had I ever seen concrete reflect as much lights as Broadway was currently endeavoring…


  10. Size matters

    16 Jul 2018

    “Size Matters” Los Angeles 2018 This will be a simple, cheery post for a weekend that has over-flowed with a wide-variety of naps.  I’ve taken quick naps, long naps and medium-length naps.  I’ve had naps on the couch, naps on my bed and even a nap on the floor.  I…


  11. Timothy

    01 Feb 2018

    “Timothy” K-Town 2017 There are few people that I call good friends.   I think a lot of of it has to do with the fact that I’ve never really been good at being a friend to another male adult.  I have a hard time connecting with my gender on a…


  12. Worthy

    21 Jan 2018

    “Film Worthy” Hollywood 2017 I’ve had to make a few changes in my life for 2018.   We’ve always had a comfortable lifestyle, the Noellert family.  We’re not wealthy or even rich or affluent, but we’re not middle class.  Ester says were “bougie” from time to time which makes my face…


  13. Low

    09 Jan 2018

    “Low” Venice Beach 2017 One of the best parts about living where I live is that I’m only a stones throw from the Venice Beach boardwalk.  Venice is seething with images just begging to be made and time after time when I head down there, close to sunset with a…


  14. Behind

    04 Jan 2018

    “Behind” Carson, 2017 Over the break I’ve taken some time to edit.  I’ve tried to be brutally honest with myself and the result has left me feeling a little conflicted.  Of my last 250-300 or so pictures I had pulled perhaps 20-30 selects.  That puts my hit rate in the…


  15. Call Eli

    30 Dec 2017

    “Call Eli” Los Angeles 2017 This store was someone’s dream… I’m going to say that it was Eli’s store and ergo Eli’s dream of how he was going to make it big in the world.  He had a dream of how he was going to leave his mark on Los…


  16. The Reader

    29 Dec 2017

    “The Reader” Manhattan Beach 2017 The facet of film photography that hooked me was the aspect of full commitment.  By full commitment I’m referring to all aspects of photography that a digital shooter will waste time checking or changing or adjusting rather than shooting and trusting their instincts.  When I…


  17. At a loss

    28 Dec 2017

    “At a loss” Los Angeles 2017 I’m at a loss.   I don’t remember making this image.  And while I don’t recall making this image, I am 100% certain that I was the one who made it.  That may sound ridiculous but when you are married to a photographer and have…


  18. Hail to the Chief

    22 Dec 2017

    “Hail to the Chief” Venice 2017 I’ve been sick and upset and not in the mood to post here or on Insta.  I haven’t even really been in the mood to be a citizen of the United States or even a human of earth lately.  I have a sinus infection…


  19. A is for accident

    07 Dec 2017

    “A is for accident” On the days leading up to that trip to Ikea a couple weeks back, I had an aching feeling.  Anyone who has shot long enough with the same camera–especially film cameras with a bevy of mechanical bits–can tell you with some degree of accuracy when something…


  20. There

    28 Nov 2017

    “There” Time for something different.  I need to stop raging about the world for a few minutes and have a little bit of light-hearted, old fashioned enjoyment, if even only for a minute or two.  I may or may not have mentioned that I’m trying to shoot a little more…


  21. 10 minutes

    25 Nov 2017

    “10 minutes 1” “10 minutes 2” “10 minutes 3” “10 minutes 4” I rarely shoot just architecture anymore.  Somewhere along my photographic journey I was pulled towards images narrating a  human experience to art or architecture or the surrounding environment.  Architecture began serving a compositional role that is one component…


  22. Fuck you man

    23 Nov 2017

    “Fuck you man” The story behind this image starts as a familiar one.  I’m out shooting downtown and something catches my eye. I quickly frame up and hit the shutter.  A few weeks later I look at the negatives and it either worked out or it didn’t.  Sometimes when I…


  23. Waiting

    22 Nov 2017

    “Waiting” My train rides with Elliot always lead to Union Station.  The Expo line stops at 7th Street and we transfer to the red line and ride the rest of the way to Union Station.  Sometimes we’ll get out and walk down 7th and then turn left, up towards Grand…


  24. At the end of the day

    20 Nov 2017

    “At the end of the day 1” ‘At the end of the day 2” “At the end of the day 3” Nothing today will be related to photography really.  You’ve been warned.   I haven’t processed any film this month so far.  In fact I haven’t shot very much this month…


  25. Hello, Hej

    17 Nov 2017

    “Hello, hej” “Mirror mirror… mirror…” “Twin size bed” If you’ve spent most of your adult life in Sweden and then moved abroad, it’s a moral imperative to locate your closest Ikea the second you come up for air.  It’s a law actually… in the Swedish constitution.  Given that subconscious mandate…
