Photographer's Note

This is Keld. I was contacted by him one day when I went about my business photographing a building. He was curious as what the "mission" was. As I explained, he was interested and invited me for a beer. I said " ah, but I don't go to pubs in the early afternoon". "no-no. We'll just get a few from the supermarket and drink them on a bench in the shade".
So I accepted. He was a spectacular fellow. Never met him before, but we spoke like old friends. I won't refer all he said about himself, but he had an interesting life.
If you look closely, you can see the scar beside his belly button where he was stabbed once. He used to be a socalled FROGMAN. A Danish parallel to a Navy Seals or the SBS. A commando. Not always on the right side of the law. Looking at the photo you might think him a bum, but he is absolutely not. He holds a job on a factory doing night shift. A true pleasure it was meeting Keld. One of the last vikings.
