The film originates years ago in my childhood home in rural Denmark when I did a dreadful act, that still reverberates within me. My father hung a painting of Jesus above my bed to protect me. Every evening before closing my eyes I begged the man on the cross to look after my family. When my family collapsed in spite of all my prayers I blinded his gift. I still remember the smell of the burning canvas and the shock of suddenly seeing wallpaper instead of Jesus' loving eyes. Since then I have travelled the world with my camera to find new ways of looking at life. All the thousands of shots I have designed while hiding behind the camera are both a presentation of various characters, fictional as well as factual, in different landscapes over more than four decades, but at the same time they constitute a picture book of my own thoughts while trying to find a way through life.
