| the alternate reality ✨ | . It’s been over a month since I last posted here. Like many of you, sometimes it comes to a point when stepping back is needed. To reframe and understand what the social dynamics we are involved in do to our minds and emotions. For example, I am not a fan of the algorithm and I refuse to let it influence how I think and feel. Also I have been a lot into reading and thinking about alternate realities, from the perspective of physics to the perspective of perception and the mind. This has all opened new horizons of thought for me and for that I am grateful I spent this time reading and thinking. . Also as I have been saying for a while, I am craving to move onto a next chapter with my photos and I am actively seeking the creative spark to come from deep inside my brain and that when I see it I say “yes!” . . 💖 . #sejkko_lonelyhouses

For Hannah and Myana, “Pride is about knowing we are all equal, but beautifully different. We are so proud to not only be a strong gay couple, but also strong women and strong people of different races and backgrounds. We love learning things from each other, and growing because of those parts of us.” Self-described ‘lovable weirdos,' @HannahMavestrand and @les_nanz have hope for a future where people are not afraid of being who they are. #LoveIsLove #WorldPride 📸: @JonasBardin Join the cause: For every #Pride T-shirt sold in the U.S., #MichaelKors will donate 100% of profits to @GodsLoveNYC, a longstanding pillar of the LGBTQ+ community.
“John and I met when we were young pups at a time when homophobia was on the rise. Nevertheless, we have beaten the odds and will be celebrating 47 years together,” says Michael, a volunteer in the Joan Rivers Bakery at God’s Love We Deliver. For them, Pride is about feeling comfortable in your own skin and knowing that you matter. John and Michael envision a future in which the LGBTQ+ community no longer suffers from fear—“fear of rejection from family or friends, fear of losing a job or any kind of discrimination because of who you are.” #LoveIsLove #WorldPride 📸: @JonasBardin Join the cause: For every #Pride T-shirt sold in the U.S., #MichaelKors will donate 100% of profits to @GodsLoveNYC, a longstanding pillar of the LGBTQ+ community.
Friends for sixteen years (the pair met in college) and partners for two, Danielle and Tahanee credit those years of friendship as the root of their success. “We really understand each other’s personal growth and journeys. We make it a point to have fun together while also respecting each other’s need for time and space,” explains @Danielle.A.Cooper. “Love means celebrating, honoring, and respecting one another,” they say. “Pride means the same, being able to love others for who they are.” #LoveIsLove #WorldPride 📸: @JonasBardin Join the cause: For every #Pride T-shirt sold in the U.S., #MichaelKors will donate 100% of profits to @GodsLoveNYC, a longstanding pillar of the LGBTQ+ community.
“We were introduced at a dinner party. We bonded over a dog walk around the reservoir in Central Park and he tried to kiss me that night. I made him meet me for a proper date first,” says @JoelDear, on meeting his boyfriend, Rishi (@boy.nxt.door). The NYC-based couple knows that Pride isn’t just about how they spend their June. It’s about “tirelessly defending and supporting our community in the face of adversity. We want to leave our queer sons and daughters a better future because we spoke for those that had no voice, we lifted those that were cast out and we loved those that felt unloved.” #LoveIsLove #WorldPride 📸: @JonasBardin Join the cause: For every #Pride T-shirt sold in the U.S., #MichaelKors will donate 100% of profits to @GodsLoveNYC, a longstanding pillar of the LGBTQ+ community.
It takes two: for Carolyn and Ceci, communication is what keeps their relationship strong. “We’re able to talk about everything openly and honestly with each other, from our past and insecurities to our dreams and triumphs.” The happily married couple is raising their voice to stop hate and spread joy, love and laughter through the podcast @DykingOut, which @TGICarolyn produces and co-hosts while @CeciBergier creates all of the art. Their hope for the future? “That Pride continues to raise the voices and stories of marginalized communities.” #LoveIsLove #WorldPride 📸: @JonasBardin Join the cause: For every #Pride T-shirt sold in the U.S., #MichaelKors will donate 100% of profits to @GodsLoveNYC, a longstanding pillar of the LGBTQ+ community.

“Every day is a great day with Nicolette,” says @EmmettJoon, a member of the trans community and the Manager of Communications at God’s Love We Deliver. The real-life couple met on the Internet—“like most modern couples.” They love to sing karaoke and have even written and performed their own musical. For Nicolette (@lette_me_try) and Emmett, “Pride is an unapologetic proclamation and celebration of who we are and who we love. It is a celebration of the beauty of all of us—everyone under the LGBTQ+ umbrella. It is a way to honor the hard-won victories resulting from the Stonewall Riot, the Mattachine Sip-In, and everyone who made it possible for us to brazenly show our love and bravely continue the fight.” #LoveIsLove #WorldPride 📸: @JonasBardin Join the cause: For every #Pride T-shirt sold in the U.S., #MichaelKors will donate 100% of profits to @GodsLoveNYC, a longstanding pillar of the LGBTQ+ community.
Depending on who you ask, Ralph and Harry have been together for either 21 or 18 years. “It’s a long story,” @RalphWilson13 says. The NYC-based couple, who have yet to get married because one wants a flash mob and the other wants something a little classier, met through their mutual involvement in LGBT politics. Today, they continue to impact the community through their work with God’s Love We Deliver. What does love mean to them? “Care and reconciliation.” #LoveIsLove #WorldPride 📸: @JonasBardin Join the cause: For every #Pride T-shirt sold in the U.S., #MichaelKors will donate 100% of profits to @GodsLoveNYC, a longstanding pillar of the LGBTQ+ community.
[ our place of power ✨🏠✨] . Carlos Castaneda was a prolific writer who sold many books to an entire generation hungry for practical spirituality who were looking for answers. He was ridiculed by his scientific peers and called a charlatan. Yet nobody can deny the deep resonance his storytelling caused in so many people. One of the interesting points he makes in one of his books is about finding a place in our environment where we feel better and stronger - as opposed to weakened and drained. Doing this sort of thing can be quite a powerful and simple way to reconnect our intuition in these days of disconnected hyper connectivity. . . #sejkko_lonelyhouses . .
Dreaming of doing something like this again, but with my large format camera. Days like this, with such subtle and present light are rare. Also the clouds ☁️ can be hard sometimes. Portugal is wonderful for cotton clouds though. . Would love to read in the comments about people who have ongoing photo projects, ideas and dreams. For me, the project I have been cooking in my mind has people in it. . 💖 . .
Thinking of beautiful Porto 🏬🏭⛪ . . 💗 .
[ Sunday memories 🏠 ] . I recently got a message from someone asking about my debut project prints. Her message sent my mind back in time. Back to my memories of being a total newcomer in the world of art photography. I wanted to give the best I could give, aware that I did not know the techniques. I did not know the pro ways of doing things. And although that innocence led to some errors, it was also the state in which my mind was most open to experiment and play. The following period was all about becoming a pro. I learnt lots and the pro ways were the price I paid for being less intuitive and more calculating about my artistic work. Then there has been this pause, not imposed, not demanding and not driven. Just that, a pause. And I feel, in waves, the tickle of the innocent part of me telling me he is curious about images that don’t yet exist, of their stories. He tells me he would like the more pro me to go out and play. I look at him, I look at me in silence with butterflies in our stomach. . . #sejkko_lonelyhouses . .
[ CH2. Listen to it, because it knows. ] . One of the great things about breathing is that it has some universal aspects, its depth, sequence, cadence and the fact that like waves in the ocean, it comes and goes. Breathing together can be a powerful thing and a topic for a future post. . But some aspects of breathing are as unique to you as your fingerprints. One of the techniques I am researching now is about sitting down in an intimate place for ten minutes and focus on listening to my breathing patterns. No judgement, no logic. Let intuition be the messenger between your mind and your breath. . Sending love and wishes of a great weekend ahead . 🌊 . . #nature #ocean #breathing
[ CH1: Are you breathing, really? read on ]⠀ .⠀ We are challenged in many ways to keep up with life in this time. For many the main focus is work: never ending lists of to-dos and commitments. This gets worse when coupled with fears about other people's perception of our performance. For some of us, there may be an additional lack of alignment to what makes us feel we are living a life with true meaning. All of these things make us breathe... differently.⠀ .⠀ Have you realised we spend a lot of time breathing into your upper chest? Guess what, this is where panic receptors are located. This means that for too many of us, living in panic is becoming the new normal. But, is this what we want? How to snap out of this pattern without having to choose to leave 'the system' and become isolated?⠀ .⠀ Many old traditions, some of which have been revived by modern techniques adapted to our time, are based on a core of universal breathing mechanics. They know that changing the way we breathe can, quite literally, change our entirely reality.⠀ .⠀ I will go into some specific details in future posts, but the general idea (for now) is to gain an awareness of the air going deep into our diaphragm, and the bottom lung lobes (rather than the upper), keeping a stretch there and releasing slowly.⠀ .⠀ One immediate effect of this is the reduction of your heart rate, and activation of your calming receptors. With the help of health tracking technologies I can monitor my heart rate and sleeping patterns. This makes seeing the correlations between breathing and monitor readings something quite incredible. For example, I would like my resting heart rate to be on the low 50s (and currently it is on low 60s) and I would like my deep sleep continuity to increase (I am a light, restless sleeper). Over the next few weeks I will be focusing on changing my breathing, and in a very disciplined manner I will keep my monitor readings, hoping for improvements. I will share what I learn with you.⠀ .⠀ What are your experiences with your own breathing? Are you aware of it? Any questions for future posts on this topic?⠀ .⠀ #sejkko_lonelyhouses⠀ #wellbeing⠀ #architecture⠀ #breathing⠀
[ spring feelings 🌷] . Here some images of the time I spent in Scotland. Back in Lisbon now I need to make time to go through my rolls. During this trip I decided I need to print some photos from every experience, to write about them and put it all in a physical album/notebook. . I feel it is too easy for our memories just to get easily buried in the digital rolls of our phones and cameras. . Also I am going to make some changes in my Instagram sharing . First change : I will start sharing posts every Tuesday and Friday 15h00 GMT. I will focus a lot on my spiritual journey through visual narratives and photos. Some posts will be about my fine art photography including prints, and some others will be about photography, editing etc. . Sending tons of love as always . .
[ Scotland 🏴 ] sometimes, for some of us, it is necessary to travel back into the past. To walk the old paths again, relive and remember, to make sense of the arrow that points out from the present into the future. I am grateful that it was in Scotland where I built my character, many of my values, my sense of community and also myself as a scientist. . What about you? What future are you creating? . #sejkko_lonelyhouses . .

| the vibrant soul ✨🛸✨ | we all want to connect with what makes us tick, what makes us vibrant. I have been swimming in an out of interactions with the world and people - seeking inside me for a thread that connects me with what can give most, and better. It started with my body, what I eat, how I move, and sleep. At this point it is all naturally moving into visualisation and energy projection. For me healing and well being start with the body. I have confirmed this over and over again. It feels good. . The lonely houses are celebrating five years of formal existence and because of that I am preparing something I hope you will like. Stay tuned - it will come in two forms one of them very very soon. . Sending love always 🙋🏻♂️💖 . . #sejkko_lonelyhouses . .

| Memories of a lunar sunset. 🌓 🌊 | . Sorry I have been away. I have been a total science nerd lately working on stuff some of you may enjoy having to do with social network chatter, politics and all. . Getting inspired to go back to roaming the outside world with my analog camera again and sharing the more informal side of me in @sejkko.b - and as always the more artsy side here. . .

[ from atom to cosmos ✨🎆✨] . . This is a revisit of “quirky” - one of the pieces in my first photography project. I believe that constructing the future is like a spiral: we revisit, we evolve, we grow. Each revisit seems like the same, but it is always different. . It is in this spirit that my 2019 begins. . I would love to read about your insights and reflections guiding your start of this new cycle. . . 💖 . . #sejkko_lonelyhouses .
[ there is a hiding place, right between seasons ✨🏠✨] . I often hide in places like this. In sunsets, in coloured buildings seen through random windows. I often hide to protect myself from this world that goes too fast, where being in the network is more important than beings. . My year is ending and it’s been one marked by evolution for sure. I am grateful for that. Cut old ties, and began taken risks for the future. And to do things steadily, disciplined, but without the rush that leads so many people out there to get things wrong. . I’d love to read about your end of year reflections if you feel like sharing them. . #sejkko_lonelyhouses . . ✨🏠✨
WIN a Limited Edition art print ready to hang! ✨ . 🇵🇹 Ganhe uma impressão artística de edição limitada pronta para pendurar 🏠🎁🎄 . I am currently working both as an artist and as a scientist with @museuberardo . We believe people in this over complicated world will begin to, more and more, seek meaning an connection in art spaces. We want to see more of how you interact with art. . The museum currently has three temporary shows: . Quel Amour? (About the many expressions of love); . Purple (about how we are treating our planet); . Saudade (about the strange and unique longing sentiment we feel over here). . To win: . 1. Tag someone you think would love the challenge. 2. Go to the museum on your own or with your friend and soak any or all of these stories in, create a photo or video moment either inside or outside the museum and add it to the hashtag #sejkko_berardo . One of the stories (they can be photos, videos, or stories) will win a collector’s limited edition Lonely house printed in archival medium, mounted and ready to hang. You must be in Portugal. . Winner will be chosen on December 15th so that you can get your print for Christmas! . . #sejkko_lonelyhouses 🏡 . 🌈💖 . .
Throwing this back as a nostalgic call for summer days. Today it is raining like crazy, and through the full agenda of my days there is a window to dream sometimes. . Any other workaholic extra busy bees out there? . Also: I opened my IGTV channel today. It will be about art, galleries, nature and soon also photography tutorials (the ones you wanted in the stories poll - I haven’t forgotten). . Sending love 💖

[ colour blast 🌈 before the ☔️ ] . If you are in Lisbon you will know what I am talking about. We went from schorchio-summer to winter in like no time at all. But in the short in-between, the vibrancy of colour was briefly hypernatural 💖 . .
[ all views are welcome 🏤💒🏢 ] . This last week I came across many situations that reminded me of how important it is to listen, and to give different points of view time and attention. Also realised how important it is for us not to hide behind a keyboard or a mobile phone when expressing how we feel and what we think. . Giving time, attention and brains to the world is harder that just reacting to it, but I believe that time and energy pay back by making us all more real and more present. . What are your views? . Have a great weekend 💖 . .
[ #tbt of a sunset to remember ] . 💖 .
[ beautiful awareness ✨] lately my senses have been very tuned to the little things that make the universe be full of life. The moisture in the soil, the osmotic movements inside roots, the pores on leaf surfaces that enable photosynthesis, the breeze. All those things. . But also, I could not help noticing the sudden arrival of autumn. It was like from one moment to the next. One day 38c the next 17c. Well well hello Autumn! . 🍂 . 🏠 . #sejkko_lonelyhouses .
[consequence or choice?] . As Carl Jung said, “I am not what happened to me. I am what I choose to become.” . Isn’t it crazy how some quotes we have known forever suddenly appear fuller with meaning as we grow, transcend and evolve? . My path at present is full of releasing negativity, forgiving those who have hurt me - fully, and re training my thoughts to be attuned to what really matters. . The more that happens, the more i feel I am me. And I know this because I am having feelings I remember from my childhood. . I now realise those early feelings and visions came at the time to become the reminders of who i truly am in times when the world would be very confusing and hard to navigate from the truth of the heart. . . 🏠 . .
[ the bright side 🏠✨ ] . It is not always obvious- the bright side we all want to see. It is often quietly whispering on the periphery of our everyday. Sometimes the many voices inside our head keep our eyes away from it. If we send those voices away, quietly, for a little while, we may find that all we need is right here with us. . . #sejkko_lonelyhouses . .

Now as I am about to embark in my next project I thought it was only fair to release this piece into the world. The story of this house has to do with the sensation of a strong, yet gentle and deeply invigorating alpine breeze. Sunset oxygen - we all enjoy it in our core, in our own specific way. . .

[ can you spot the person without a pair? 👯♀️ ] . Came back to this place where I took one of my favourite photos for the Fernwehallein project. I was waiting again for a strange synchronicity, for a sort of chapter 2. The weather conditions were super different and the light too. Yet I found this scene where in some strange way every one has a pair, except one person. And then for that person something paired is going on too. I love that. . .

[ deep into details 🇬🇧/🇵🇹 ] . Two #sparkarenaissance challenges done. . Congratulations @josenunes for winning the first, the winner of the second will be announced very soon! . Here is the third challenge: details. What are details to you? For me it is very often the patterns on tiles, the cracks on walls, textures, or sometimes the stamens of a flower.

[ the power of waves 3/3 ✨🌊✨] . This is the final part of this little story. From dreaming, to breathing we end up in the awareness that all life and consciousness in our universe is governed by oscillations and rhythms. Nothing goes forever up, or down. At the core of all that is good and beautiful we will always find wave patterns. From how or genes work to make our boies to the decay of a galaxy. . . Being in tune with this brings peace, self awareness and connection. . Thank you all of you who wrote so many illuminating and beautiful comments on the previous two parts! . #sejkko_lonelyhouses . .
[ the breathing gap 2/3 💨 ] . This is the second of a small three part story. This second chapter is about the importance of finding your breathing gap. I am realising more and more how in stressful situations, or when moving inside the density of a city, I forget to breathe. When I forget to breathe I lose my breathing gap, which is like a fine tuned part of my intuition that tells me how to find my cool in every situation no matter how difficult. Then my logical mind takes over separate from intuition and it all becomes steep, calculated, and forced. . How do you relate with your breathing gap? . . #sejkko_lonelyhouses . .

The version of “les Deux Maisons” that made it to the final fine art print. 🏠 🌒 . This piece speaks about the situations in which we feel split in two parts. I feel this often. A part of me is like the tidy house, every part plays a role, and my will orchestrates the tunes. This part is luminous, expansive, curious, inclusive, geometric and precise. Yet sometimes I feel there is another part of me. It is like an owl, or maybe a kind of feline. It sees very well at night. It knows more about chaos than I think I do. Sometimes I feel it is my duty to build a bridge between the two. But I don’t know how to start, or where will the bridge really lead to. . . #sejkko_ferhwehallein #fineartphotography #contemporaryartist #kunst #artcollector #fujiflex
