A Danish newspaper wanted to publish a photo story about my life, so I gathered all the pictures I could find of myself. Only criteria: I had to be in all of them. In other words they are all taken by other photographers. It might seem a little self-promoting. On the other hand I am making life-time photographic stories of so many of my friends here as well as of my father, so it would seem slightly hypocritical to be willing to expose them and not myself. In any case it is always interesting to leaf through a persons life from birth to adulthood.
Most of these photos are silly poses with organizers of my show or friends, but there are a few interesting photos among them. I will later put captions and stories on all of them.
