Some new photographs here.
In February I get to go to an artist residency in Prince Edward County and print photographs for a week.
I went to see Bruce Peninsula play at the Music Gallery, which is a church, an unusually lovely church, and it was so beautiful. Misha’s voice is insane, like I want to hear her sing every song in the world. Kevin is doing a video of Friday night’s show and it is going to be amazing.
Like every Swedish person I have one of these light things for Christmas. When you fly into the airport in Gothenburg in December you can see them from the airplane in people’s houses and all the offices in the airport have them too, just rows and rows and rows of them all over. I wish Canadians would put them up, they make the dark so much better. A while ago Finn Andrews put up this...
The fire from Yuula’s birthday party. It was green and blue and purple. Come to Relational Politics tomorrow.
I ate lussekatter and leverpastej sandwiches at the Harbourfront’s Swedish holiday celebration. There are already people skating there. Since June there has been an outdoor exhibit of photographs called RESPECT: A Photo Odyssey Celebrating Canada’s Boreal Forest along the boardwalk and some of the pictures are incredible, much better than my mobile phone capture representation. ...
Some test pictures. The colours right now are insane.

Look at these beautiful pictures Yuula Benivolski took of me for her thesis project.
There are a bunch of dead birds on the island that I am photographing, like this one. They are newly dead and look like they’ve just fallen from the sky, some are bloated up like they’ve swallowed basketballs and I think the cold is preserving them.

Look at these beautiful photographs by Karin Apollonia Müller.
I spent 30 kilometers on a bicycle and there was a guard at the spit and we couldn’t go in. Those are some swans at Cherry Beach, where there is nothing to photograph.
Yuula and I went to the island today and she went in the water to the tree and the water was 10C. Then she did something so amazing, but you will have to see her pictures for that later. I miss the island, it is so quiet now, quiet and brown and the trees are bare. The colours are so incredible that I want to shoot in colour.
Yesterday I went somewhere to take photographs and as the sun was a thin pink line over the trees Yuula made a torch and I stood in the dry cotton field holding it. We had kerosene. It burnt much more than I think we expected and when we tried to put it out pieces flew off and those started burning on the ground and part of Yuula’s shoe melted while trying to stomp it out. It was one...
It is getting so cold. I rode my bike through the city at 4 in the morning and everything was empty. Yuula and I went to High Park to shoot, but the landscape is not what I want and I discovered that it’s hard to hang from trees and two boys rode skateboards without wheels down a hill of dry and yellow grass.

Crackly face paint after dancing at Lee’s Palace. There was a man dressed up as a Twitter page, a girl like a pack of Belmonts, a couple as American Gothic, the man holding a picture frame and we slow danced to In Dreams.
