About Anne-Stine Johnsbråten
Anne-Stine Johnsbråten (b.1983) is an independent documentary photographer living in Oslo. TIME called her one of “eight Norwegian photographers you need to follow” in 2015.
Johnsbråten combines reporting with portrait work to explore topics such as gender, identity and discrimination, and several of her long-term projects have been exhibited in renowned galleries and festivals in Norway and abroad, such as Henie-Onstad and The House of Photography in Oslo and Lumix Festival for Young Photojournalism in Hannover. In 2012 she received the Tribute Prize from The Freedom of Expression Foundation in Norway for her work The Norwegian Roma.
James Estrin of The New York Times said that “Johnbråten takes a social anthropological approach in her attractive, direct images that are without artifice and that capture the lives of her young subjects in intimate, spontaneous moments”, about her project Eastside – Westside – Youth culture in Oslo developed for The Norwegian Journal of Photography #2.
