Life of Lucas
November 6. 2013I did a couple of photos for Byhaver.dk - a webshop focusing on especially people living in larger cities who wants to grow vegetables. I am fortunate that I have a lovely garden here where I live in the heart of Aarhus. So I chose to shoot the photographs in my own home. Incredibly exciting job! :)
October 11. 2013Last weekend we had exhibition opening on our 'Lead the Way' campaign that we did together with World Perfect for NorthSide Festival. The exhibition took place in an old military bunker in the Heart of Aarhus, Denmark. It was open for two days. Everything went very well - We want to thank all of you who came by! Thank You.
July 30. 2013 Earlier this year i was invited to Skuespilhuset in Copenhagen to shoot Den Sorte Skole while they were performing their newest album 'Lektion III' with amazing visuals done by Dark Matters. During the shooting I broke my camera because it hit a door frame. Bad luck!
I decided to play with lights and long exposure photos because the camera could not focus. On the way home to Simon Dokkedal from Den Sorte Skole I realised that I had to do something totally different - and I am actually very excited with the result.
Lektion III consists of 25 track. I've made 25 pictures, one for each song.
June 24. 2013In the beginning of June I was working together with the advertising company World Perfect and NorthSide Festival about creating a sustainable profile for NorthSide Festival 2013. We created the campaign 'Lead the Way' trying to encourage people to be responsible with trash at the festival. We used five of my pictures for this campaign and they were literally everywhere on NorthSide Festival - even on the big monitors next to the two big stages.
Here are some of the campaign i shot at NorthSide Festival.
June 13. 2013Finally finished the last exam. Everything went really well despite the fact that I prioritised our exhibition at the Northside Festival higher than the exam. Now I start a big project with Aarhus Kommune it will take one to two months. Exciting, yes!
Here are some snapshots I took at Northside Festival - little bit of everything. I think there has been a huge lack of pictures where the atmosphere is captured at Northside Festival - despite of all the Instagram pictures of course. Photographers tend to focus only on the musicians. I do not!
June 13. 2013Tomorrow we wil be at NorthSide Festival. We are having a exhibition as a part of the campaign Lead the Way created by World Perfect. The visuals of the campaign is posters with pictures i shot and Martin and I have used these campaign posters to create 15 unique pieces of art. Also we have prepared a BIG piece which Martin Skyt will be working on during the festival. Come see the psychedelic woods with the retro 3D feeling!
We are STOKED! Come by World Perfect at NorthSide Festival, visit see the exhibition, become a part of Lead The Way, and maybe you will feel the need to buy one of the crazy rat posters.
June 1. 2013Yesterday we received this magazine from Informanten - a magazine about anthropology at Aarhus University. I did this front and back piece together with Malene and Jonas. Pretty cool I think! It is Malene in the photo at Ar0s Museum. Now i am heading for todays job - a wedding!
Maj 24. 2013Today we cleaned Aarhus, why? Because we love Aarhus. City Sweep was arranged by World Perfect, NorthSide Festival & HeleVejen but they could not have done it without the big amount of volunteers. This was part of a bigger campaign about sustainability. The images you see in these photos are some of my photos I took with my old Yashica T3 super on a Kodak Ektar 35mm film. I have always liked those photos but Jonas E. Thomsen from World Perfect was the one that thought of the idea to use my photos and add graphics to them - and he os damn good at it. I am very proud of the product we have made and I am so excited about NorthSide Festival 2013 where even more of my photos are to be used for the campaign. Also I can announce that I am working on a piece of art together with Martin Skyt for NorthSide Festival - This is BIG. Stay tuned!!!
Maj 12. 2013Saturday I went to Copenhagen to follow Den Sorte Skole and their performance at Skuespilhuset. I had an amazing day with Martin and Simon from Den Sorte Skole among with a group of very skilled moviemakers. Really inspiring to be around those guys!! And a lot of fun too! The trip was kind of problematic because my 50mm f1.4 lens broke while being there. So I had to shoot only with my 16-35mm f4 lens and the broke 50mm. Due to this and the fact that two other photographers also had the opportunity to shoot their concert at Skuespilhuset I decided to try something totally different from the normal concert photos i tend to hate on. So watch this series as my interpretation of the universe Den Sorte Skole invited me into. This is of course very very inspired by my dear friend and favorite artist Martin Skyt. The idea of this series is to let it evolve into a picture per track on Lektion #3. This takes time so keep clicking by my blog.
By the way. It is very helpful to know or listen to their music to fully understand these crazy photos.
Maj 5. 2013Recently I won a Roskilde Festival Ticket in a photo competition at Aarhus University. The theme was Music. I entered the competition with this photo of Flødeklinikken from Aarhus Hylder Mangfoldigheden. Pretty sweet to win a ticket. Now i do not have to work during Roskilde Festival - though i will still be taking photos there.
April 17. 2013Woah. I have not really been taking photos recently. I had an incident where my Macbook was stolen - so i Iave been having a hard time. Besides having a hard time i am also having a very good time. Working on seven covers for the band Mechanical Waves, starting up a new project with Aarhus Kommune, soon taking photos for Soundvenue.com at SPOT Festival in Aarhus, and much more! - Stay tuned. :)
March 27. 2013Today i have been working with Martin Nyland Skyt on our project. We are really making progress now. We are extremely excited and we look forward to showing you what we are doing! Also today i just had to try painting again. Very inspired by Martin and his paintings.
March 8. 2013I often sit and work with my good friends Jonas and Malene. I love to sit with them and work. It's a great feeling when work, friendship and pleasure merge.
This picture is a product of Jonas, Malene and I.
February 14. 2013In the beginning of February i attended to Transmediale 2013, a berlin-based festival focusing on art, culture and new technologies. Also there were a lot of digital art - which i think was most interesting. Here is some snapshots from Berlin.
February 11. 2013It has been a while since i have updated my blog here. This does not mean that i have been doing nothing. No, i have rather been very busy. Recently i did a job for Aarhus Kommune wich i am not allowed to share due to some different restrictions. I have also attended to Transmediale 2013 BWPWAP. It is a Berlin-based festival focusing on art, culture and technologies. That was great fun, and i will of couse post some pictures!
Right now i am sitting in Saalbach, Austria. I am away for a ski trip. This is a picture i took the other day when we visited Königssee (a very big lake). The weather was amazing, best conditions for photographing i have ever experienced!! Pictures will come soon too! - Woaw. So much to do! I am indeed a very lucky man!
