  Pandora, high tides are coming   The myth:  The god Epimetheus (gr. "Hindsight") was responsible for giving each animal a positive trait, but when it was man's turn there was no one left. His brother Prometheus (Gr. "Foresight") believed that man was superior to all other animals, and that it should therefore receive a gift no other animal had. Prometheus stole fire from Zeus and gave it to man. Zeus was furious and decided to punish Prometheus and humanity. Pandora was created as a poisoned gift for man, and he gave her a jar.  This jar was Pandora's gift, and she was often warned by Epimetheus to open it. But one day the curiosity took over, Pandora opened the jar and released all the plagues of the world: grief, poverty, crime and so on. She closed the jar in time to hold back one thing - hope. The world became a terribly windy place, until one day when Pandora took the opportunity to open the jar again, and the hope poured out. In this way, man has hope in times of evil.

Pandora, high tides are coming

The myth:

The god Epimetheus (gr. "Hindsight") was responsible for giving each animal a positive trait, but when it was man's turn there was no one left. His brother Prometheus (Gr. "Foresight") believed that man was superior to all other animals, and that it should therefore receive a gift no other animal had. Prometheus stole fire from Zeus and gave it to man. Zeus was furious and decided to punish Prometheus and humanity. Pandora was created as a poisoned gift for man, and he gave her a jar.

This jar was Pandora's gift, and she was often warned by Epimetheus to open it. But one day the curiosity took over, Pandora opened the jar and released all the plagues of the world: grief, poverty, crime and so on. She closed the jar in time to hold back one thing - hope. The world became a terribly windy place, until one day when Pandora took the opportunity to open the jar again, and the hope poured out. In this way, man has hope in times of evil.

  The bigger chill   It was a long time ago, beginning of the 90´s. Went for a fishing trip up in the moutain, but the weather turned out rather rough. When my friend and his dog stopped to search for the path, I saw the picture and grabbed for my little APS film camera in the rucksack. I got the shot and it has stayed with me since then.  There is a sami saying that goes:   “You can be big in the cabin, but in the mountains you will be small”

Garbage plant in Tromsdalen, Tromsø. The sun shines on a frosty winter day in March. The garbage lights up in clear colors and forms its own topography that appears to spread far outward on an icy surface.
