I didn´t expect it to hit me this hard. Since I moved to this land of fjords and mountains and unforgiving coldwater surfing a long time ago, there has never been any looking back. But Norway is not always easy on you. The ocean decides. You will never tame it. It will spit you out and leave you shivering for a long time. But you keep coming back for more.
I don´t want to come in for a quick visit, or even a long visit. I don´t want to write postcards from here. After the first time I came here I knew I had to live here. So I live here. And my photographs are my postcards in a way. But I do believe that the most important moments are the ones between the photographs you take, and I feel that living somewhere extraordinary like on the rugged westcoast of Norway, gives me the energy and inspiration to venture out and search for situations where nature works the man in a way.
It´s good to be worked every now and then. It keeps you young. Or at least it keeps you from growing old.
