My name is Haakon Michael Harriss. I am a photographer living with my family on a green and rocky peninsula just south of Oslo, Norway.
I believe that the core of why I do photography is because this is the way I express my self best. I believe that being a photographer has learned me to ask questions why things are as they are. I believe that the closer and more personal I get when telling a story through photography, the more people will identify them selves with the story.
I attended Northern Lights Masterclass in documentary photography 2014/15 in Groningen, Netherlands. I am often working on projects looking at issues relating to family and identity.
For a living I work as a photographer at the Norwegian Folk Museum in Oslo. Here I document the historical photographic collections, and other collections and exhibitions in the museum.
