2018 in Music: A Collection of Photos


This year has been a year of new adventures. I’ve been doing a little less music photography, but has managed to travel a lot, visiting new and old places. Ibiza, New York, Iceland. New festivals with and without my camera bag; Panorama NYC, Roskilde Festival, Øyafestivalen, Iceland Airwaves. Enjoying life and working hard.

I started 2018 with a wonderful and intimate Charlotte Dos Santos show at Victoria Nasjonal Jazzscene in Oslo and ended it with a really poor concert by Ms. Lauryn Hill at Oslo Spektrum. In between I’ve photographed artists like Sigrid, Grandmaster Flash, Gary Numan, Harry Styles, Thirty Seconds To Mars, Metallica, Demi Lovato, Foo Fighters, Father John Misty, Prophets Of Rage, Arcade Fire, St. Vincent, Charlotte Gainsbourg, Roger Waters, Jeff Lynne, Laurie Anderson, Shania Twain, Blood Orange and MGMT. Not bad!

I sincerly hope you enjoy this collection of pictures from 2018 (click on the image for full screen).

Iceland Airwaves 2018


Last week I travelled to Iceland to cover the festival Iceland Airwaves for GAFFA Norge. My article (in Norwegian) is published here, but I also had loads og pictures that I could not fit in the article so I wanted to share some of my favorite shots from the festival and Iceland in this blog post.

This was my first visit to Iceland so I’m really happy that I also had the chance to visit Secret Lagoon, Geysir and Gullfoss on this trip too. In addition to the Reykjavík Photographic Museum and the Icelandic Phallological Museum(!).

The musical highlights of this year’s Iceland Airwaves, for me, were Reikjavíkurdætur, Ólafur Arnalds, AURORA, Natalie Prass and Blood Orange. I was most disappointed with Snail Mail (great music, but not a very good show) and Julian Casablancas & The Voidz (Casablancas being a big hero for me on account of growing up with The Strokes, but his new project is really not that interesting and the show was a mess).
