Les failles mélancoliques
My photographs portray life, the celebration of it and it's inevitable end. My exploration focuses on and embraces places where something seems destined for failure or have gone beautifully wrong already. My camera is looking for the cracks in normality because this is where I see the light in life. Individually the images raise more questions than they answer but collectively the images depict a tale of a melancholic yet beautiful search, an image of one person's journey and his intense view of the world. These images are shot all over the world but are tied together by the force of their emotional character more than the event or it's geographic location. This work doesn't consist of various photographic projects but is one big ongoing diary-like body of work. The series represents glimpses of my personal life and journeys through the last decade.This is an ongoing work.
Jasper Carlberg (b.1976) is educated in the realm of documentary photography with a B.A Doc. Phot. from University of Wales College Newport (U.K) in 2001. Since his graduation he has worked out of his native Copenhagen, Denmark with editorial and commercial assignments. Along with working professionally Jasper has instinctively recorded his personal life not focusing too much on why and how he made these images. In 2012 jasper looked through 10 years of personal work and realized that it was time to put this work together and made www.greygreenblue.com as his alternative website with personal work only. Jaspers preferred media is film (35mm and 6x7) and various digital cameras. Jasper shoots equivalent in b/w and color.
