Lost in the Rain by alltelleringet Lost in the Rain by alltelleringet
An idea I carried with me for some years that I finally put to life. It was part of my exhibition at Fotografiska in Stockholm earlier this year and the last unpublished photograph from my book. I would love to hear if you have any thoughts about it, what is happening? Why are they there?

I really like your work, this in particular. It looks like the fish represent a part of life that everyone has to go through or experience at some point, something bigger than the mother and child, not necessarily something bad either. It's like the mother is exposing the child to it but not explaining what it is because she can't, the child has to understand/experience this on there own; in their own time. Like the child is on the outside looking in sort of thing, not really knowing what their mother is showing him but taking it in all the same.
What do you think?

I like how the boy is pointing at the fish - that must be a very exciting sight for him. The fish themselves look a bit too static for my taste, but they also seem very determined to get to their destination, which is obviously something important. Also, the mix of crisp details and blurred spots (drops on the lens?) gives a nice dreamy feeling to this scene.

The bottom half is excellent, especially the woman and the boy. The fishes look quite odd however, and their straight procession looks surreal, one remote association might be the Star Trek IV-movie where the whale probe comes to Earth.

I'm not sure the true meaning of this image. But, somehow this reminds me of one of Coldplay's video, Up&Up. Have you watch it? You should watch it! :D

I love this piece in its entirety! How ever you have done something very different and very interesting. I love the way you used blur to convey that rain drops are on the lens or the glasses of the viewer. I think that is brilliant!Clap

Hey! To me, it looks like a mother and son come to see the soul (portrayed as a fish) of the kid's passing father. That's a stretch, I know, but it's a pretty open-ended picture! I love it, as I love all of your artwork, but I do think more salmon could have had curves (as if swimming). They are all so straight it almost looks like copy and paste. However, that is just the nit-picky critique of a not-so-expert artist.

I like your interpretation, and would like to suggest that the straightness of the fish does make them look more goal-oriented; as if they are all swimming diligently towards one thing up ahead. If they were a representation of the father, perhaps he could be trying to communicate to his family to continue working towards something, maybe his own life goal he hadn't reached or for them to work towards their own goals even after their loss. 
The use of fish is unique, perhaps the father was working towards sustainable fishing sources. It's a thought, anyway. And in contemporary art, it seems we're always fighting for somethin'.

To me it looks like mum takes a stroll in the rain with her little one. And he tells her about what he sees... or what he thinks where the rain comes from. You know, the kind of stories that pop up in childrens minds when they muse about the odds of life and nature.
As always a beautiful image. Well done! :heart:

As ever, this is incredible.

I assume they're there as part of an alien invasion. They're not fish. They're aliens that happen to look a lot like fish.

it's a few hundred layers as usual, everything is built up piece by piece, it's all photographed, no 3d in any of my work. I bought some fish and photographed it in my studio. //E
