    WT Photo Selection

    Over the past 3 months I’ve been going through the photos I’ve taken since 2006. 63,000 is the number. Massive task.

    One reason for all this sorting is that I plan to do a photo exhibition (more on that later) with selected pictures from expedition.

    I’ve come down to an agreeable 35 pictures and naturally, lots of darlings have been killed along the way. My aim is to select some 12 to 15 pictures and this is where I need YOU. I need your comments, ideas or suggestions for other images that I might have forgotten.

    The criterias used have been loosely defined, but I have generally selected photos that:

    – Explain themselves
    – Tell a story
    – Are technically suitable for a large format (approx. 70×100 cm, maybe larger)
    – In different ways provide an insight into the world, or into the life on the expedition
    – Are relatively simple in its expression (minus the slaughter of the cow :-))

    The 35 photos can be seen HERE or below…

    And please, be honest with me, be brutal if that’s what it takes for me to kill more darlings.

    I appreciate any help. Thanks.



    On this day..

      The photographs are great and tell a good story. There are some close ups that demonstrate that you took time to get to know where you were cycling through, as well as the panorama shots that show the journey, literally, in perspective.

      Good luck with the exhibition.
      Please make a book….

      Hi Nicolai
      Your piccies are amazing and diverse.
      To show the greatest diversity, in my opinion, in terms of colors, landscapes, portraits and stories, I think the following listed by number must be included.

      All time favorites are:

      Following are the ones you can do without.

      I love your darlings too. Good luck!

      Thanks a lot, Camilla. Notes taken. Appreciate it heaps.

      Cheers, Nicolai

      PS. When YOU talk about darlings, I get a little confused exactly WHAT darlings we’re talking here… 😉

      Thanks, Cindy. Though not represented in the album, the memories of outstandingly beautiful Tonga will stay with me forever…

      Take care,

      Hej Nicolai,

      Der er simpelthen så mange fantastiske billeder at det er næsten umuligt at vælge imellem. Mine absolutte favoritter er:


      De få jeg synes du kan skære væk af af de udvalgte er:


      Men det er godt nok svært, for de er alle helt fantastiske 🙂
