I am a Norwegian photographer based in Oslo (b. 1973).
I do Personal Narratives, Fine Art and Street Photography.
Curiosity is my main tool in photography and in life. To grab a moment and look at it in a subjective way. To add a different mood or chord, using the different visual languages of black and white. When the scene is shot, it is something that once existed, but perhaps more visible than ever. I want my photographs to be like questions. Like scenes from a movie. The immediate, the unguarded moments. The beauty that is imperfect, impermanent and incomplete. The perfectness of what’s imperfect. The in-between moments.
My work is exhibited (solo and group) in Germany, Spain, Belgium, Italy, Crimea, Thailand, Uzbekistan, Hungary, Japan, Poland, UK, Serbia, Greece, Russia, U.S, Taiwan, Philippines, Belarus, China and Norway.
