Ole is a Norwegian photographer from Bergen who started photography at the age of 9 when he was given a Kodak Instamatic. Deciding that this was fun, he quickly graduated to a "real camera", his father's 1949 Welta Welti.

After the usual progression through ever more advanced equipment he thought something had been lost, and returned to simpler manual cameras, in sizes from 6x4.5 to 18x24cm. Since much of his equipment is approaching the century mark, the logical next step would be to return to the techniques then in use.

Most of my images are "one-offs", since I value experimentation more than consistency.
