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 It was part of my exhibition at Fotografiska in Stockholm earlier this year and the last unpublished photograph from my book.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.

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.

An excellent piece. Very atmospheric. Good job.
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 thought they were zeppelins at first glance.

Awesome as always, sir!
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
