best of 2019

My annual ritual of compiling and sharing the best photographs of 2019 (yes 2019…. I am slightly, just so slightly late to the party this time around). So here they are: 5 in colour and 5 in black and white “2019 was my year of black and white photography“ brief review I’m rather pleased with […]

the annual ritual

This is the yearly “my company has grown a year older” advertisement message. Head over to the Megrow website to read how the company has evolved and what Megrow and its partners have delivered to clients. And give Megrow’s podcast a try as well (see below).

The Return of the Isdal Woman

I’m a fan of long-form reporting A very well-made, suspense loaded and sometimes thrillingly tense BBC podcast engulfed me early 2018: two journalists reported, over the course of ten episodes, their efforts to shed light on the death of an mysterious, unknown woman (the “Isdal Woman”) in Bergen, Norway, some 40 years ago.

I’m sure archeology professors and students will ponder about the significance of this building and structure when they discover it under water (global warming,,,,) […]
