Hans Strand’s 2013
Interview with Hans Strand
Hans Strand is an internationally recognised photographer who has received numerous awards for his work and published three books. He lives near Stockholm in Sweden.
We asked a number of our contributors to answer a few questions on their past year and what 2014 holds.
1) What have you been doing photographically in 2013, anything new & different or exciting trips that got the juices flowing ?
I have been doing my regular stuff. A mix of Swedish bread and butter landscapes to keep the financial wheels spinning and some intimate landscapes for my soul. In March I went to The Lofoten Islands in the northern part of Norway. It was an intense 4 days with fantastic beaches and snow storms. In June made a trip to Iceland including a workshop. The Iceland trip was specially successful this year and I got quite a few new interesting aerials. This since we were flying a helicopter for the workshop and I got the opportunity to fly much lower and slower than I have been doing previously with an airplane. In september I had a workshop in Abisko, in the high north of Sweden and in the end of October I went to France to Burgundy and to the Alps. In total 2013 has been an OK year. Nothing fantastic, but not bad either.
