In 2007 I began shooting images of Norway, not assignments or images with commercial value. Not even images with a distinct purpose, but a visual relief. Photography made from a true joy in discovery of Home; a country I had barely visited.  The project did not really gain traction until a road trip to the less than charming city of Førde happened during Easter of 2008. The magic of home waited, of the unknown yet strangely familiar.  After a couple of years in South Asia I was a visual virgin in this world. It became the playful extra minutes of an assignment, an eternal search for the images I had not seen, my feeling of Norway; subjective and random. The freedom of the road. Something to look forward to, something to explore. In 2011 it took over and I spent 12 months as self-imposed homeless on the roads. This project has taken me across the country, from Svalbard in the north trough more than 1500 places in the entire country to the very south. This project have changed my priorities and my life and I never moved back to Oslo after the homeless year; but settled in a small island in Lofoten.

The summer and fall of 2013 have been spent editing a book of these trips to be released with Tartaruga Press (UK) later this winter, and the past weeks have been spent in my studio printing the first exhibition of the material. On November 9th at 7pm there will be drinks and images at the opening of Trondheim Documentary Festival; exhibition venue is Trondheim Art Museum.
