Photography

Finding oneself in a place that they do not belong to would easily make one assume that also do not connect. Yet in my photography research, the combination of documenting along with personal experience of the subject matters create an interaction which amounts to not only a physical yet also a visual connection. 
Investigating the relationships between the external world to myself allows me to be critical towards situations while exploring the differences between various societies. 
Intercultural relations has always been intriguing to me and my work often touches upon social or personal conflicts related to belonging, identity and past.

Planlagte prosjekter og utstillinger

In the moment I’m working with two projects. One is in a village in Palestine where I’m doing research on national identity and affiliation. The other one is in a youth-center in Lichtenberg, Berlin where I’m working with troubled youth looking into the topic of trust.
Video and photography. Exhibitions and viewings will be announced
