Bilder Nordic School of Photography
Lars Haberg (b. 1986)
I am a documentary photographer from Norway.
After graduating from Bilder Nordic School of Photography (Oslo) in 2009, I left Norway to live in the West Bank, Palestine, for eight months.
Ever since, I have been focusing most of my work on the project, Unfortunately, it was Paradise. A project about the mood, and the psychology of daily life under a military occupation. This project came to life when I realized how far away from everyday life in the West Bank everyday news is. I try to reflect this in not only the stories I tell, but also in the style of photography I do, sometimes placing me in between fine art and documentary.
Most of my time away from Norway, I spend in the Middle East.
I also teach photography at Sunnfjord Folk High School, in my hometown Forde.

Lars Håberg attempts to capture the constant heavy “psychology of occupation” by documenting the daily life of Palestinians who live in the West Bank.
