Project Ansel and Arvo Pärt

“As a photographer, I have been working together with Arvo Pärt over ten years, following and documenting his working process and also in portrait sittings. Arvo Pärt’s music is probably the greatest inspiration and influence on my visual art. For me, it is fascinating how Pärt’s music merges into the essence that starts my visual engine. I consider myself very lucky that my inspiration is coming from the music instead of visual arts. Project “Ansel” takes us to America’s last wild landscapes, where famous landscape photographer and environmentalist Ansel Adams worked his whole life. My thoughts pick up where Adams left off.  Key to project “Ansel” is Pärt’s piece “My heart’s in the Highlands” from the Robert Burns poem.”
