The Holstee Manifesto:
“This is your life. Do what you love, and do it often. If you don’t like something, change it. If you don’t like your job, quit. If you don’t have enough time, stop watching TV. If you are looking for the love of your life, stop; they will be waiting for you when you start doing things you love. Stop over analyzing, life is simple. All emotions are beautiful. When you eat, appreciate every last bite. Open your mind, arms, and heart to new things and people, we are united in our differences. Ask the next person you see what their passion is, and share your inspiring dream with them. Travel often; getting lost will help you find yourself. Some opportunities only come once, seize them. Life is about the people you meet, and the things you create with them, so go out and start creating. Life is short. Live your dream and share your passion.”

Løber Nøgen is an artistic community founded at Fatamorgana The Danish School of Art Photography in Copenhagen in August 2006.
The core of Løber Nøgen – Danish for ‘running naked’ – consists of six individual, working photographers hailing from France, Norway and Denmark. However, when meeting for projects more or less people may be involved depending on circumstances.
The overall idea is to explore what the six founding members essentially have in common. Personal styles and boundaries are annulled and vanity is left behind in a childlike attempt to lose one self in rediscovering what is so very familiar to the Løber Nøgen group namely the medium of photography.
With the photos I shoot, there is juxtaposition between the glory of creation and the fallen nature of humanity. These images explore the desolation and darkness hidden in the human soul, and the brokenness of the human spirit.
“A man can no more diminish God’s glory by refusing to worship Him than a lunatic can put out the sun by scribbling the word, ‘darkness’ on the walls of his cell.” – C. S. Lewis
