Hi Troels! Tell us a little about yourself?

I’m me! Found myself in the mountains four years ago, based in Hemsedal, Norway, with a bunch of great people. Doing five months in my van this summer. I love the element of the great nature on earth and especially the spectacular strength of it. I enjoy processes and like when things are difficult.

So you did a pleasant editorial. What are your thoughts behind it?

It was not such a big thing actually. Three friends and I were on this trip to the Lofoten islands, and the editorial just ended up the way you see it. It's super honest and present, and ended up that particular way because of four very good friends having fun for a month, living as dumpsters in a tipi. The trip was very important for me to just simply relax and enjoy life.

What does ”Make waiting pleasant” mean to you?

For a long time, I thought that the important thing for me was outdoor living, doing as much as possible. Since then, I have realized that the time when I am very pleased with what I do and where I am, is when I spend time with people I care for and who share the same passion as I do.

What does paradise look like to you?

The most satisfying thing I could dream of, is being self-sufficient in all aspects of life. You could call that my paradise. Or maybe we could imagine a world where everybody just did things they like and love and they do it a 100%.

As a photographer, whats your dream task?

I put up two ultimatums. I want to stay creative and I want to change something. Obviously the environment is what matters most to me.

If you could change one thing in the whole world, what would that be?

Right now I work and think a lot about the current plastic problem in the sea and the relationsship we humans have with plastic. If I were to change one single thing, I wish that people were much more conscious with what they do and how they consume. I wish that everybody had the knowledge and information about products and the consequences of their use. Focusing on no waste. Especially concerning plastic and food.

How long could you survive without internet?

A month, easily! In my van, living the simple life with my old nokia 3720, I’d do a pretty good job. but in my case if I should live without the internet, I would stop being a photographer. My life is my network, my friends and my work space.

Do you have a favorite piece of clothing?

Yes, the one and only. My icelandic wool sweater from a great vacation with my dad, a few years back.

Whats the meaning of life?

Don’t waste! Create happy days instead.
