Bjørn Kvaal attended my photo workshop in Villajoyosa, Spain, this spring, and showed some considerable and impressive progression during the five days the workshop was running. Before attending he was used to photograph for the articles he writes as a journalist – with a detached style, but during the workshop he was pushed towards a more personal approach. Bjørn took the challenge and started photographing people in the little Spanish village with a personal involvement that at first was hard for him, but eventually got the better of him. By the end of the workshop he could show a strong portfolio of intimate street portraits. He got close to the people he photographed, both physically and emotionally, which clearly comes across in his images. Bjørn captures those small moments where people relax and show themselves as the persons they are.
Photography is my work and still all fun for me. I try to develop my photographic approach and expression. It's a continues learning process - and I love it.
