Just got the very sad news from Matt Blais that Per passed away this morning. We are all devastated. Such a fantastic teacher and sweet man, so much talent. He will leave quite a legacy. We are in shock.

Rest in Peace, Per.

I regret never meeting you in person, but you have always been generous to me, both directly and indirectly, in many ways.

My deepest condolences to his family and friends. Per was a very kind man. I will miss him.

Sov godt.

In the few times I worked with him, I learned so much. I am still working on applying all that he taught me.

I already miss him.

He freely gave much more than he ever got.

Such terrible news. I treasure the brief time I spent with him this past year. What a loss to our community.....he was so encouraging, positive and always in good humor .

Very sad news. I was fortunate to meet him last year in the 5 Church Work Shop in NM where he enjoyed speaking a little Danish.
RIP Per.

Matt and I went to see Per at the hospital on Thursday last week. He was his usual self. I know how morphine can make one feel like nothing is wrong. We had a great visit full of laughter and for this I am thankful. Per was a dear friend, mentor and wonderful artist and teacher. He was a great inspiration to me. We spent a day together with me teaching him carbon transfer that I will never forget. My best to his family. They will be in my prayers.

Sad news indeed. I took a workshop in Vancouver with Per a few years ago. He was a good teacher and a generous man.

What sad news!

I always wanted to take a workshop with him as I've heard so many great things about him, but alas, that will never happen. May he rest in peace.

Per was a true artist...not "just" a photographer. Through his eyes and spirit, his generous soul and love of sharing, all who came together under his guidance benefited. He was quick to laugh and slow, if not impossible to anger. I made many life friends through his endeavors and for that, and for the many laughs, I am forever thankful he thought to consider me his friend.
I was honored...

He enjoyed life and respected everyone. He touched a lot of souls and I am happy he grazed mine. I'll never forget this man.

Is there a way to pass these condolences on to his wife from the website?

Is there anyway Sean or a moderator could pull some of Per's photographs and make a portfolio for us to enjoy?
