I was born in Oslo in 1965. I have had a troubled and traumatic life that resulted in loss of confidence to people. I left the established society, but after some years on the “edge”, I started to form my experiences as artistic expressions. I soon felt the need to gain more knowledge on both a procedural level and within philosophy of art. This search for knowledge resulted in a decade of art studies.
In 2013 I finished my master studies in arts, design and crafts with a major in photography. Since then I have developed my own technique and worked with visual questions to issues and taboos in the society.
I work with contradictions and taboos related to ideologies and norms in modern society. I seek to visualize the spaces that are formed as the uncensored inner thoughts meet reality.
I work with Instant films, where I always combine elements beyond my control together with the motifs I have consciously chosen. The surroundings I choose for my photography always have a meaning for what I express, and their contributions are not only on an ideological level, but on a concrete one as well. By pressing the films onto the photographed subject, a chemical process forms by particles from the photographed, blending with and affecting the films’ emulsion
