The chase for that special first frame

The chase for that special first frame

New camera. Nothing to it, however, a thought came to mind. First exposure could be something special. Out of the ordinary. Not just another push of the button. A camera is a vessel for light. Through the glass, sensors or film we use, an unbelievable amount of lights pass. Some of it registers and is...

The academic look

The academic look

  “At work, it has happen that other women have seen me as a threat. You know, young, thin, blonde… Maybe it’s special to work within the academics? I teach literature.

Bosnia, here I come

Bosnia, here I come

For more than ten years I have gotten to know and photographed refugees in Sweden. Alisa is one of them. She was born in Bosnia Herzegovina with her roots in the roma culture. This is her story in short. She was married of  at the age of 14 to a man from another part of Yugoslavia, Kosovo. When the Balkan war...

I met Annikken and Laila at the same day in different parts of Oslo. At that point I never thought that the pictures would have anything in common. At least not until I put them together. Suddenly they started speaking to each other. It was as if the pilot glasses, those very material things, told...

I recently attended my first norwegian wedding. Hanne and Paul had a beautiful wedding in Oslo with the wedding party at the fantastic VIlla Eckbo outside the city. In Scandinavia most people want to arrange their weddings in the summer to use the long day and bright night can be fully used for the most...
Motor culture

Motor culture

I often end up in documenting motor culture and animals. I'm not interested in any of the two subjects significantly. On my visit to the north I shot both "folkrace" and snow scooter driving on the water. Why ? I don't know…
