You are a hard drive Darling

I'm not sure where this fits in with the rest of my photos.
I like it, but it's tough to decide if it's strong enough for
my portfolio, which I don't think it is but am unsure.
I'm my own worst editor and have a fear that my most
intimate and best story-telling images are hidden away
on one of my hard-drives because I've chosen the safe
route in selecting my photos.
Maybe this isn't one of them but it's an image I like
that I shot at a swim meet this past summer in Virginia.

He shot the Darling with an old Rollei

" For some reason this picture has been stuck

in my head for the last week, despite the fact
that I haven't seen it in a long time.
I know that I saw some picture online last week
that remindede me of this one, but now I can't
remember which.
It's shot in the winter 2005/2006 on a football
field near Fatamorgana in Copenhagen. It's shot
with my granddads old Rollei, the same kind of
camera my friend Viktor in the pictures is using
to shoot me. I would actually love to see the
pictures he makes of me. Viktor, if your out there,
please see if you can find it!

I guess I like how it could have been taken 40 years ago.
Timeless, so to speak.
Sara, thanks for giving me a chance to bring this picture
back to life!"

- Emil

UPDATE: Viktor responded and sent back the image he took. Find it here.

Come on Darling light my fire

" I love this picture! I simply do... and why?
- Because I was lucky ass hell!
Look at the light around his eyes - it´s perfect...
but sadly it´s not enough to make this a great photograph.
The facination passes - and then it´s just a lucky picture and nothing more.
But I still love it. "

Expected more drama- Darling

This is Dannie Druehyld, and she is a whitch.
A Norwegian newspaper wanted me to do a photo essay
on her,
so I went to Aalborg and spent a day with her.
A fantastic lady, really. The essay was never printed.
The paper had expected a more dramatic,
crazy whitch, they did not expect a clever lady who loved nature...
I still love this picture, it will always be my darling although
I can't have it in my portfolio.

This is a real Darling!

"Emil is 11 years old and is autistic.
He has no language, and can´t communicate
with his surroundings. He avoids eyecontact,
so his mom was extremly suprised that I got a
picture like this, and started crying because
they didt´t have any pictures of Emil looking
in the camera. The paper didn´t print it,
but I still like it.
Because it´s quiet, and because I fool myself
to think I made a connection."

Digital Dust Darling

" I photographed Susanne in Ã…rhus cemetery one morning and for some reason really like this photograph. I noticed the crosses and just waited for things to line up and as soon as she turned her head, that was the little moment I was waiting for. Something quiet. But maybe it's just me who likes this. So it won't be in any portfolio and but I thought I'd share it so it doesn't just sit around gathering digital dust."

Look me in the eyes - Darling...

Hanne Hvattum, has send this photograph
" This picture will probably never be printed.
It will never appear in a newspaper or hang on a wall.
Why not?
It's not a part of a bigger story, a reportage, a project.
It's just a picture, a moment, a child I met while travelling, and will probably never meet again.
Still, I will never forget these eyes.
And it feels good to know that they are out there, in cyberspace, to see and to be seen. Given eternal life amongst all these other photographs sharing the same destiny- the rejected ones, that survived- after all.... "
