The plan was to continue working on the project during our time in New Zealand but sadly things did not go as expected and today it is time to post the last Burrow… Continue reading

Down memory lane.

We came often to this place, years back. A place where we walked and talked and climbed the trees. Good memories.

Taking it with.

Deep in the forest

Deep in the forest in Sweden where you find moose prints in the soft moss.


A couple of years ago we first saw this tree on the coast of Denmark. People hang whatever they find on the coast in this tree, gear from fishing boats, pieces of iron, rocks, plastic.… Continue reading


No words needed I guess. Ireland.

Denmarks flow.

When I was young my parents took my brother and me to Scandinavia every summer. So, though we lived on flat land I grew up with images of flowing green and yellow land,  amazing… Continue reading


I’ve had my eye on this perfect beautiful old icehouse  behind a friend’s old house in a forest somewhere in the middle of Sweden for over a year.. ;)

Sand and clouds.

Sand, clouds and a bird. A good day.


Hundreds of different mosses floating on peaty water, flowers, (wet trousers) and björnbär. We could live there.

Lake Michigan.

It is just a small road which takes you through an area with holiday homes and hide outs in the woodlands before you reach the sandy beaches and the clear water. ‘Lake Michigan is worth a… Continue reading

Atlantic ocean.

What I would like to add to these Burrow shots might seem random. Bright sun,  cold swim in freezing Atlantic ocean, the feeling of freedom, how good it was to spend time with friends and how we… Continue reading

People burrow in Milan.


The workhouse in Callan.

During the period of the big famine, an Gorta Mór, in Ireland 25% of the Irish people died and another 25% left Ireland for the new world. In this workhouse in Callan and the fever sheds surrounding the… Continue reading


This project brought me to different places and though it makes me annoyed as I forget it so often, I sometimes do remember to take a shot of the beds I sleep in. Herm.. I could also put… Continue reading

Dainava, a place in the US.

Walking over fields away from people and sounds and on a path where the winds swept trees of their feet.  A place within a place within a place. ps Travels will take me away for a… Continue reading
