Photo: Marianne’s Son, Axel Joachim Jensen, With Bjorn Saastad, Hydra 1976

On February 4, 2016, Marianne Ihlen sent me this photo with the message, “Here is a photo of Axel Joachim and the Norwegian Painter Bjorn Saastad. Axel Joachim was about 16 years old. Hydra 1976.”

Axel Joachim Jensen is the son of Marianne Ihlen and Axel Buchardt Jensen, the Norwegian author. After Axel Jensen left Marianne and Hydra, Axel Joachim lived with Marianne and Leonard Cohen for several years.
