Ursula Jernberg

I came across the Ursula Jernberg’s work in a roundabout way a few months ago while visiting Claire Cottrell in LA and her Book Stand shop. Claire carried a zine called Sunday Mornings at the River, which I picked up. I visited their website when I got home and found an intriguing book they were selling in limited pressing called “Characters of Jante” by Ursula Jernberg. The prints are segmented into once-folded sheets of photos stacked together and arranged inside the sleeve of the outer cover. It’s a hauntingly beautiful collection of photography that truly captures the calm in these scenes. Jernberg lives and works in Amsterdam and I was lucky enough to rendezvous with her on my recent trip abroad. Really excited to see what she does next!

Guest: Ola Roman

Through some random pathway in the internet a couple years ago I found the work of Ola Roman. Her photography work feels clean and new somehow which gives it a striking radiance. Roman was born and raised in Warszawa, Poland before moving to Brisbane, Australia. She currently lives in Melbourne where she studies photography, does freelance photo work and fills in her remaining hours working in a bar.

  1. Southern Australia, Great Ocean Road
  2. Summer clothing alteration, Brisbane
  3. Near the Roman’s summer house in Mazury, Poland
  4. Returning home at 3am, Brisbane
  5. Self-portrait, Brisbane

Dunderdon

Dunderdon is a clothing and accessories line based in Gothenburg, Sweden. With a balance of well thought-out design and an embrace for the outdoors, Dunderdon is surely a gem with only 2 US stores at the moment (NYC and Portland, OR). I had the pleasure to photograph Dunderdon and showroom manager Nicole Held recently for a feature on the Kinfolk journal. Here are some secondary shots from my visit to the SoHo showroom.… Read More
