    Hi all

    Yesterday my good friend and photographer Carlo Petersen presented his new book about the master in Danish photography, Viggo Rivad aged 86. (see some of his work here: http://www.photomondo.dk/Infophoto/User_viri/startnative.html ) His is maybe not known outsite Denmark/scandinavia but he is the only photographer there is on the state budget here and get a life long support from the Danish goverment for his big contribution to photography... and he has no education and have drived taxi all life.... He is also the only photographer there have got one of his pictures on a official Stamp from the Danish postal service.

    In the book Carlo have followed Viggo for 3 years and made some really really strong portraits.

    To the official presentation of the book Carlo had asked me to shoot some pictures to document the event.. I also had the change to shoot a couple of portraits of Viggo.
