Virtual Journeys: Captivating Travel Journals of Iconic Capitals

The Virtual Journeys are an expanding series of captivating travel journals offering the reader a view into the city life of several capitols. The stories are told in the form of pages from a graphic novel where each page is a small story in itself and all pages combined tell the larger story.

In each city I have chosen one particular place or walk that has a unique view of the visited metropole and lets the viewer experience this. Each page is made up of fragments of pictures that have been processed in order to let you focus on the details without being distracted by photo realism of the daily life. By doing so a more abstract version is created that conveys the feeling of being in that place and time rather than an investigative image portrait of the city.



The first two stories created were about Tokyo and Istanbul, both created from pictures taken almost 30 years ago. Followed by Lisbon that was shot in 2019. Berlin in June of 2023 and London in August 2023. More capitol cities are to follow and will be published here in the same formats.


As a viewer you can enjoy these virtual journeys in the form of a book, an eBook, as complete pages or as individual frames. Each presentation gives you has a different experience. An individual frame lets you focus on minute details that might be hiding in the background. A page will show you the interaction between the frames, show different angles. The books will bring everything together in to one continuous story.

From my own experience I can guarantee that no version gets boring. Images that I have seen many times over still surprise me with new details, even the ones taken almost 30 years ago.


Supporting to the stories each city also has an ‘Adult colouring book’ where you can let your creativity flow and create your own version. The colouring process not only is a stress relief and calming experience it also lets you focus even more on the images that are presented.
