My interest in photography started at a very early age when my grandmother was showing me her family photo album.
My next introduction to picture taking was an old box camera owned by my mother. I was fascinated seeing the roll film being loaded and to watch as the film was advanced in the little red window.
At the age of twelve I was developing my own films by home-made developers and making prints from an enlarger that I had built myself. The family bathroom was acting as the temporary darkroom.
In 1968, when working as a pilot for the Scandinavian churches relief aid operation in Biafra, I captured some of the first images showing rescued children as they were arriving on the Portuguese island of Sao Tome.
Photography has always played an important role in my life. When the first digital cameras appeared, I was quick to acquire one, and soon saw the future of the camera, computer combination.
I have traveled extensively, taking pictures all over the world.
