All close ups of my face are in colours in this album. The first portraits were taken during my first photo session ever of this kind at the age of 57 in June 2015. Since then I have spent another three photo sessions with the same photographer. All sessions are located in Barcelona, Spain, or nearby. Every summer I spend my vacation there. I love the atmosphere of the city.

Pictures in this album were taken on the very spot that Woody Allen shot one of the famous kissing scenes in his Barcelona-movie Vicky Christina Barcelona from 2008. I was actually there when the shooting took place the year before. The pier is located in the heart of the Olympic Village at Barceloneta Beach.

The pictures in this album are in black and white. They are not manipulated in any particular way as they were meant to be in black and white. You will find a mixture of portraits and posing pictures from my debut photo shooting in June 2015.

Very little did I know that the bachelor flat of my photographer, located in the heart of the Cornellą del Llobregat, was blessed by a huge balcony, well hidden from the outside world. The flat is located some 20 minutes by metro heading south of Barcelona. In this album you will find one of my most famous pictures ever where I am ready to serve the guest of honour his cup of afternoon coffee.

Close to the left bank of the Llobregat River at Cornellą de Llobregat there is a desolate area surrounded by high fences and wild bushes. Getting on the inside one early morning we found a wide open space to experiment sun and shadow.

Many times I have spotted Delta del Llobregat while arriving at El Prat Airport from the south. It has always occurred to me to be covered by low vegetation. I could not be more wrong the late afternoon my photographer took me there. The wall of vegetation was twice my height. I could hear the sound of ducks, wild cats and rats seek hiding from the «intruders».

Sometimes you feel the need to be somewhat naughty. The location of this compilation of pictures is an industrial area in the outskirts of Barcelona. The entrance is clearly marked by the simple words of «No trespassing». We all know how tempting it is to bend the rules at times. This album contains some of the more «daring» and famous pictures in my gallery.

I am not in bed because I need to rest. I am in bed because I want to exploit the reflection of daylight coming in through the window. Again my photographer has been so kind to open his bachelor flat to experiment with light. He managed to create a setting where I seem to float in a river while light is playing with my body.

I find myself at the El Prat Airport Terminal 1. I had to cross the parking lot to get to the underground path leading to the quiet beach located south of the airport. Since it was dark outside, I wanted to experiment with electric light. We have all seen pictures of bodybuilding competitions where the stage light is adding the little extra of beauty to sculptured bodybuilders. This was the location of my stage this evening. My body was in the spotlight.

I do not know the exact amount of kilograms I have lifted since I started to lift weights at a regular basis at the age of 25. I was 75 kilos then, now I have reached 112. The series of pictures are all from my gym in Oslo. Photographer: www.helgesart.no

I have always been fascinated by architecture. The temptation to do a series of poses in the backyard of La Sagrada Famķlia became too strong. The monumental building in Barcelona is one of the finest there is.

Oslo's Opera House is located right at the harbour, with an angled, white exterior that appears to rise from the water. It invites visitors to climb the roof and enjoy panoramic views of Oslo and the fjord. The roof top is ideal for photo shoot.

The Vigeland Park is the world’s largest sculpture park made by a single artist. The lifework of Gustav Vigelands counts for more than 200 sculptures in bronze, granite and wrought iron. No wonder that this is the place where I got the inspiration to start shooting pictures. The park was completed between 1939 and 1949.
