Taxi Driver - Din Taxi Tromsø

Din Taxi Photo Library

Here are a few photos of the one-day project, which was to create a photo library for a taxi company in Tromsø. The aim was to present the  Din Taxi driver as a good and helpful person, open and cheerful employee who truly cares for the passengers as well as to express a high level service and prop up the company motto “Caring for our passengers”.

Four models, 50mm and good natural daylight.

Boy Reading a Book

Reflection in the mirror

How often the image of ourselves that we have does not match the one seen from the outside. How often judgement that the others do about us feels mistaken. Lack of objectivity makes us dwell between other people’s image of us and that comfortable “us in the mirror” that we are used to see.

Life after all looks like a ridiculous theatre, like a cheap play that sometimes does’t make any sense at all. And again you do your make up and put on your mask. There you stand caught in the mirror, ready to come on the stage.

Off the Shoulder

Now as I begin to more and more often remember _that_ time, the pictures help me a lot in coming back to the past. Feeling a bit nostalgic.. a bit black&white. Weird, maybe? ..even strange. Something untold, something undone, unfinished.

Typewriter was superseded by the computer, the film does not anylonger find a place in the photobag. Gigabytes of digital shit won’t be ever printed on the photo paper. Electronic photo frames are beatifully hanging on our walls. Hail to the Future!

Life on Mars? Yes, I still believe there is life on Mars. Does it make any difference? Obviously not.
