I stayed in Jakarta earlier this year for 1 week and here are a random collection of photographs I took during my stay. Jakarta was mix of different sides. Everything from more modern and sleek places to a lot of ghetto and chaos. Mostly the latter one. A lot of street food and general businesses operating on a street level. I was lucky enough to meet some nice locals during my stay as well.
On my way back to Norway, moving back there from Australia, I decided to drop by Bangkok in Thailand on my way back, and took a few days off there to explore and see the place. I was lucky enough to meet locals who showed me around what Bangkok had to offer. I honestly got a bit mixed reactions of Bangkok and it has without any doubt been the most ghetto place I have ever been to so far. Very strong contrasts between the very rich and the very poor.
Trying out something new! Believe it or not, but my model Aud is actually educated as a lumberjack, no joke! I like to show some of the personality to the model in the shoot, to make it more natural for them, instead of putting them into a situation which they either find uncomfortable or can’t relate to at all. Usually just adding some of their twist into the shoot… but this time we decided to do a shoot purely dedicated to her “work”. Not to mention, that’s the last thing you’d expect a model to be educated as.
