Essence Of Denmark

For over a decade I have represented various Danish clients, some of whom are located in Aarhus, Denmark, on the Jutland peninsula. Aarhus is a wonderful city of about 250,000 people, with its own complex blend of old and new, sophistication and simplicity. Like many European cities, you can walk just a block or two and go from the 21st century to hundreds of years earlier.

This image practically photographed itself. The ancient house is set off with the very modern evidence of current life. Its arrangement was purely and fortuitously "found" as it is. For me, the brilliant Matisse-red color and contrast between old and new, weathered texture and classy bottles, capture the essence of Denmark.

The premise of Talking Pictures is that all of us have images that carry an internal narrative that we rarely get to share. This entails more than just camera, exposure, and film. It might include what provoked us to snap the shutter or how, in retrospect, the image makes us feel.

We invite you to submit images and words for this department. Please send only one image and brief text with each submission. Because we will print the pictures large please make sure that the image can take the blowup. For this department we will accept only high-quality prints (5x7 or 8x10) and slides--no digital files, please. We will not be able to return the images to you because of the volume we anticipate receiving. And by sending us the image you grant us permission to print it in the magazine and on our web site. We also may hold publication for some time.

So come on, get published and share your ideas and inspiration. Send submissions to:
