Insomniac Dreamscape

I am in love with the abstract. My first photographic passion was using a macro lens to photograph the minuscule unseen treasures of the world we casually walk past every day. The two elements of macro photography that truly fascinated me were texture and form. Eventually I discovered the immense possibilities of working with the human figure and began focusing my attention on using the body as a medium.

Exhibiting at The European Festival of Nude Art Photography

This year is shaping up to be very interesting in terms of exhibitions and opportunities for promoting my art. The best news so far was that my series, ‘Phantasmagoria’ was accepted into the 15th edition of The European Festival of Nude Art Photography held in Arles, France. This is the biggest and longest-running festival dedicated to nude art photography in the world and I could not be any happier to be a part of it.

The spontaneous photo shoot (behind the scenes)

Recently I was traveling with my girlfriend and ended up in Brasov, Romania for a couple of days. We had lived there for 10 months in 2012-2013 and were lucky enough to meet and get to know many wonderful and creative people. While we were walking around, we ran into a couple of them and went out for a coffee. We started to talk and I mentioned a photo shoot I was preparing to do, and one of them, Veronica mentioned that she was interested in doing a nude shoot. Her boyfriend, Roland jumped in as well. I started to tell them about this idea I had and they were both on-board.

Model Impressions – Erin Elizabeth

The second article from the “model Impressions” series comes from one of my very first models who I have a wonderful creative relationship with. From our very first shoot we had that almost psychic connection and all of the projects resulting from our collaborations are at the very top of anything I have ever produced. I’ve asked Erin to share some of her insights from our shoot for the Fluid and Form project and here is what she had to say:

I’ve worked with Marius 4 times so far and hope to do so again! Our first shoot was to get to know each other and mainly focused on his Twisted Flesh project, the second was Fluid and Form, the third a “muse” shoot and the last (before he abandoned me for Europe) was a shoot in my home.

The magic lamp

And now for something completely different!

Today is Irina’s birthday. She is my girlfriend/love of my life and I wanted to give her something really special. She is very creative herself and has a keen eye and a great love of beauty. I know that she is particularly fond of Arabic patterns and design so I wanted to incorporate that into the gift somehow. After giving it a lot of thought, I decided to make an art object that was also practical in some way so that she would interact with it and use it on a regular basis. And so, the magic lamp idea was born.

2014 – new year, new beginnings?

Yes and no. The timing sort of worked out that towards the end of 2013 things sort of fell into place and I can finally get started with getting my art back onto my list of main priorities. Although I managed to find a beautiful new studio, do a few exhibitions and photo shoots that I am very proud of, 2013 was a bit slow creatively. I hope I can find more time and energy this year as I would like to spend more time on my art.

Behind the Scenes on my ‘Midnight’ photo shoot

The ‘Midnight’ series is a project that I have been rolling over in my mind for years. For some reason, it always felt a bit too ambitious production-wise and I always ended up favoring other concepts instead. So one day I actually sat down and worked out the practicalities of what it would take to pull it off and all of a sudden it seemed quite doable. I gathered all the materials I needed, put out a casting call and 9 hours and three buckets of paint later magic had happened.

Model Impressions – Christel Stjernebjerg

Photographing people in the nude is an intimate process that asks a lot from anyone that will eventually end up in front of the lens. There is of course the vital element of trust, being able to show that you are a professional person and have the ability to show and explain to others what it is that you create and why. You are asking someone to really put themselves out there and not just that, but to be able to express ideas and emotions physically, take direction and interpret it while in the nude. That being said, I thought it might be interesting for those that follow my work to also get the perspective of the models when it comes to the creative process. The “Model Impressions” series of posts will do just that.

Time heals all wounds

Last year was my least productive year in terms of shooting. This was mainly due to the fact that I had two major exhibitions to organize and I was also traveling for a big part of the year. When I was in Copenhagen for my second exhibition in October there was one thing I was almost looking forward to more than the exhibition itself – shooting with Christel and Camilla. I had seen a video of these two girls performing together and I was just blown away. They are acrobats, contortionists, gymnasts, dancers, you name it. The idea of shooting with two performers that have ample experience working together was very exciting. We met to talk about the shoot and we decided that since we also wanted to shoot some pole poses it would be best to shoot in their studio. I rented equipment, found a great assistant, Andreas (who had experience with shooting performers), got all the materials necessary, came up with a great set-up, everything was set.

Elysian Fields & Celestial Bodies Solo Exhibition

This has been a busy month as I had two big exhibitions opening one after the other in different countries. As soon as I was done with the opening night for my Twisted Flesh exhibition at the Fine Arts Museum in Timisoara, Romania, I had to fly back to Copenhagen and arrange the final preparations for my Elysian Fields & Celestial Bodies Solo Exhibition opening at Galleri Krebsen.

Twisted Flesh – my first Solo Museum Exhibition

Twisted Flesh is a project that I worked on for a period of 6 years. From the conceptual phase to final production this has been an absolutely fantastic and self-enriching process. As this project deals with the relationships we have with our own bodies, I learned a lot about people, their stories, mannerisms, idiosyncrasies, strengths and weaknesses. During the process, I also learned a lot about myself as a person and as an artist. I became more empathetic and open minded towards the experiences of others.
