“At the age of 19 I packed a small backpack and an instamatic camera and left Norway to go traveling around the world in search of a greater purpose. From exploring, experiencing, seeing, and tasting much of what the world has to offer I gravitated towards a desire to photograph. Photography became a true passion in my life. It is for me both my vocation and my avocation”.
