When the Crowd Cries

When the Crowd Cries

From the end of the 70-ties to the end of the 80-ties I worked as a graphic designer and a free-lance photographer.
Mainly with fashion photographs.
Among the models I worked with was AnneGrethe Fuller, a girl who was completely inexperienced as a model. Soon she became my favorite and I do think that I have many thousand pictures of her.
Tragically, she died all to young.
«When the Crowd Cries» is my way to honor her.
Of course I would have preferred to make a «real book» but since I publish it myself it had to be an eBook.
The book title is from the front cover photo and «of course» it is a line of a Bowie song …
I hope there is a lot of people out there who will enjoy the book and the pictures.
«When the Crowd Cries» is available on both Apple’s «iBook» and Amazon’s «Kindle».
My publishing company is «CheapChip Publishing».

Sometimes you get so lonely

Sometimes you get nowhere

 

As I am working on my book project I have started to realize that even if nearly all of the book contains pictures and very little text, it really occupies my days.
In the same time I am trying to keep my blogs alive.
The model in this picture is Grethe and (of course), the heading is from a David Bowie song …

Now my brother lays upon the rocks

He could be dead,
He could be not,
He could be you …

It took a while to figure out

These lines from the song «The Bewlay Brothers» from David Bowie’s fantastic album «Hunky Dory» (1971) inspired me to make a portrait of one of my own brothers.
I have tree of them …

I do believe that i could be a fashion designer.

I made this in a combination of «Adobe Photoshop» and «Illustrator» and it was quite difficult to get the face right. It was in the beginning of my «career» with «Illustrator» so I strove to get the face as I wanted it. The picture was quite fun actually, I was very satisfied with the dress …
My brother does not like it (I think), but he does not like any picture of himself.
Since this is digital art and not a photograph it had to have a title. For some reason I ended up with some lines from one of Leonard Cohens poems;

«You tore your shirt
to show me where
you had been hurt
I had to stare»*)

Now both David Bowie and Leonard Cohen are dead, 2016 was a sad year when it came to music. The songs and the poems will still live though and give both joy and inspiration to generations to come.
I was quite lucky to get to hear them both live.
