Ebeltoft is a cozy, beautiful, laidback town of cobbled streets and crooked old houses. Ebeltoft is not only one of Denmark’s most picturesque destinations but also a personal favorite of mine.
I´ve spend significant parts of my childhood in Ebeltoft, as my grandparents had their home here. I still keep coming back each year, to walk down memory lane, connect with some of my happiest times and boost my creativity soul.
Unfortunately, my grandma passed this year after years with Dementia. Therefore it was even more important for me to go back and honor her. My grandparents were utterly fantastic.
Every minute with them was about creating, crafting, appreciating nature and enjoying animals. Values that are so deeply rooted in me today and are the real foundation of my work. Going back always connects me with such intense feelings of gratefulness.
It´s amazing how editing travel photos can bring back such vivid memories. It´s one of the things I love the most about post production. My mind wanders back to all the details, like the feeling of the freezing Parisian morning air, the energy of the vibrant city waking up, the taste of strong expresso from a local cafe and the sound of fast speaking frenchmen saying “cest la vie”.
So far, I´ve visited Paris more than 20 times in my life, and I love coming back to explore new areas, new galleries, restaurants and seek inspiration. This time I wanted to capture the essence of Paris during the freezing cold winter. When I got up at dawn to go on my photo walks the temperature was -10 degrees. Uff, but the morning light was ALL worth it!
