Photography has truly opened my eyes to the wonders of this world. From beautiful landscapes to fascinating cultures, my camera has been my passport to seeing new and amazing things. This particular assignment for Swedish financial newspaper Dagens Industri was definitely one of those memorable moments.
For this shoot, I worked with Asia news correspondent Johan Nylander. Johan has written for CNN, Forbes, Al Jazeera, and many other well-known media outlets. Our assignment was to cover the site visit of a delegation from Lundin Petroleum to South Korea. Their oil platform, the Johan Sverdrup is currently being built at the Samsung Shipyard in Geoje and the delegation, including company chairman Ian Lundin and CFO Alex Schneiter, flew in to meet the team and see the progress.
The sheer size and scale of the project is truly amazing. Just being on the shipyard, you could feel the energy of thousands of people working on these gigantic and intricate structures. Moreover, it was very interesting to interact with the leaders of the project, these accomplished and visionary individuals at the helm of these remarkable undertakings.
For obvious confidentiality reasons most photos from the day cannot be shared, but here are a few of the images that were used in the story, as well as some of my favorite portraits with the company leaders.
And lastly, here’s a portrait of me and Johan after our day of exclusive media access to the site visit. It was a real pleasure working with you!
