A small series of pictures from the archives. I love this perspective where big becomes small and the photo has so many details. I have played with a new edit; not sure if I like the warm tone in the highlights yet and it might end up all black and white; but for now this is how they look.
These pictures are shot in Australia a few months ago. Its from a national park called Croajingolong in Victoria state and has massive sanddunes next to the Thurra River. We hiked the dunes and only with the help from friends did we not get lost.. Next to the dunes lies the ocean ready for a surf.
Love these kids dancing and playing the drums in the streets of Khayelitsha, Cape Town on a sunny sunday 🙂 Video: Sunday dancing Khayelitsha

This month my family summerhouse is featured in the Danish magazine Boligliv. I shot the feature with www.citruspress.dk. This is my recreational space in the countryside away from the city <3
Ngamadijidj shelter and Gulgurn Manja Shelter – Gulgurn Manja meaning “Hands of Young People”. A place where the Jardwadjali people lived in the mountains they call Gariwerd. Love this place and all of the stories.
Eastern Cape of South Africa. Home of the Xhosa clan. This is the birthplace of Mandela. The most beautiful landscape and friendly people. Soft green hills mile after mile and suddenly the South Indian Ocean appears. No roadsigns, gravel roads and you are sure to get lost if you turn your head. Holy mountains, nights full of stars, drums, huts, goats, spiders and snakes.
Usually I photograph Christmas interiors and DIY ´s for several months every year. This year is no exception and right now I cross my fingers that snow will arrive XXXXX. Christmas is not over yet for me… This case was shot last year. No snow had appeared for weeks and no snow was visible when we started unpacking this particular day. When I started shooting the most beautiful snow came to us – and disappeared again when we were finish. I loved that. Worked with designer and stylist Trine Elmkvist.
There are times when you look at your child and wish time would stop. I have this feeling with Vitus and his 14 years and all what it brings. A face on the borders between childhood and manhood, the independency in looks and honesty in the eyes. I just love the look of teenagers! Call me if you want your teenager documented 🙂
This monday is all about trees. For my mom.
I have an instagram profile which I feed with mobile pics. I like to shoot pictures which come along my path. Pictures where I dont think about clients interest in the process, just me and my private path. Mostly I shoot a picture with my mobile if suddenly the light is spectacular, if I see an amazing colour or if I just like what I see. You can follow me on christina_birch_
One of my favorite lights in photography is the soft morning light. These two pictures were shot in Dumbo, Brooklyn in NYC earlier this week. Had a lovely morning walk with my small fujifilm camera.
I just found these pictures shot with an analogue camera 14 years ago. I have always loved them for what they represented to me personnally. When my oldest son was 5 months old we went on a 6 week travel in Central China and its a travel I think of very often. We were quite an attraction ourselves with our white babyboy in our arms. Labrang Monastery and the surroundings were stunning. Its the largest Tibetan monastery outside Tibet and the vibe was sacred and the feeling very loving. We met lives so different from what we know of in our western countries. Have to go back one day….
