I paid a visit to the friendly community in the woods of Thy in the northern part of Denmark. They describe the place as following: “Thylejren (the Thy Camp) is a free place in the sense that it contains Life, displays Life, it’s complications, it’s developments. It has space for odd characters, imaginative artists, caring mothers and fathers, shamans, horsewomen and many more. It is both part of Denmark and the society we are all part of and at the same time withdrawn from unconscious consumer’s race and “conversational kitchen’s” culture. Thylejren is owned by the association “Det Ny Samfund”, which is organized with the general meeting (every year, Aug. 21. at 2 pm) as the highest authority, that means there is no board or chairman. Decisions are mostly taken in consensus but voting can also be seen. Thylejren is a social experiment in it’s 47th year!”
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.
