SO these are my tattoos. They arent massive or wild but I like them. The first one I got was the on/off button when I was 18. Its pretty random but a good talking point/ice breaker. All my friends say I got it so people could turn me on, but thats totally untrue. When i was about 15 I was on bmeink and saw a guy with a huge on/off button tattooed right across this chest and I thought thats awesome, so after three years later I got.
The second, I got on my 20th birthday. The outline of california. So why get California tattooed on myself? Well my rents used to live in California before I was born and we go there so much its become a second home for me, I have some amazing memories from there and one day I hope to live there.
I love these pictures by solve sundsbo, they are beauitful. Give me some crazy acid colours and sci-fi glasses and I'm in heaven.
"So here it is, finally, the post #100 her at Ben Trovato Blog. And for this special occasion I have chosen to feature what is one of my absolute favorite fashion photographers, Sølve Sundsbø. Sølve Sundsbø is a Norwegian fashion photographer who started out taking reportage and action photos of his friends skiing and clubbing and realized that he wanted to pursue photography seriously. He moved to London in 1995 where he studied at London College of Printing, before working as an assistant for photography legend Nick Knight for three years.
“He’s accelerated at a fast rate,” says Nick Knight. “I can always tell which of the assistants are going to do well because they have drive. Add to that the fact that Sølve loves all things modern. He’s excited by the future. New technologies have entirely changed the photographic landscape and he’s someone who is embracing these different directions.”
Now Sølve has worked for clients like Giorgio Armani, Bally, Boucheron, Etro, Givenchy, Gucci jewellery, Hermès, H&M, Iceberg, Lancôme, Estée Lauder, Yves Saint Laurent, Levis, Nike, Sergio Rossi, Emanuel Ungaro and Puma. His editorial clients include Another Man, Dazed and Confused, Harper’s Bazaar, i-D, Japanese Vogue, Numero, Pop, Visionaire, V and W. He has directed short films for Nike, Gucci and SHOWstudio.
Sølve’s work is a huge source of inspiration to photographers all around the world, and especially to Norwegian photographers, like me. As there are not any other Norwegian fashion photographers doing it as good as Sølve"
