This year I was honored with two prizes in the Norwegian Picture of the Year award in Oslo. First prize in the Sports Feature category for a story about chess boxing and third prize in the same category for a reportage about Polo on Ice in St. Moritz. Both stories were made for VG Helg magazine. See all the images at the «Årets Bilde» website.
In fall 2014 I was assigned by the Norwegian publisher Kagge to photograph Berlin for their new travel guide about the German capital. The guide is written by journalist and author Erle Marie Sørheim and was launched in January. Here you can browse through the first pages of the book.
One Day in History was published in The Sunday Times Spectrum magazine, January 25th.
I am thrilled to announce that I have received a project grant from the German art foundation VG Bild-Kunst for my ongoing project on the Faroe Islands. Here you can view all awarded photographers.
For VG Helg magazine I did a story about the world’s largest art forgers, Wolfgang and Helene Beltracchi.
