Photo series

by Bjørn Olav Hammerstad (Norway)

This short series of seven pictures was shot in Paris November 2021 as a part of the workshop with Anders Petersen in intuitive photography.

I photographed people I met on the street, people I thought was interesting. I tried to capture a facial expressions that spoke to me.
I also photographed a few things I found peculiar, like the toaster that would not fit in the garbage bin to the yellow Picachu standing alone at the sidewalk.
Anyway, It was the man laying on the street that made the strongest impression on me.

I´m a photojournalist in the Norwegian, national newspaper Dagen. I have been shooting some fashion, quite a lot street photography and off course press photography. I live in Bergen, at the rainy and windy west coast of Norway. I started to photograph with my fathers Ricoh-camera when I was 14 years old. But I never got seriously into on photography before I was around 40 years old.
