On Friday me, my sister and my Dad drove our boat to Wesselgården to eat stone oven pizza and drink beer from their brewery. It was my first time visiting and I was definitely not disappointed! The venue feels really welcoming and the fact that you can walk into their brewery and watch the chef while baking the pizzas makes the whole experience ten times more exciting. The food and beer were delicious and the waiters were really service minded (they offered to make us pizza despite the fact that it was over booked!).
We opted for caramel Häagen Dazs ice cream and espresso for dessert and returned stuffed and happy back to our boat after a satisfying meal. Will certainly go back another time and can highly recommend you to go as well if you are visiting Kragerø.

So, that was my Friday afternoon in photographs.

In a desperate need of something to wear at my vernissage, I popped by Lise Anns and found the most perfect “little black dress” from T by Alexander Wang. A t-shirt dress in a heavy, thick fabric which makes it quite boxy. Not too short, not too long. Simple design but it has a small yet noticeable seem detail on the front – just the way I like it.
Oh yes indeed, we shall be good friends. Finally I can check off “LBD” on my need-to-have-in-my-wardrobe-list!

Ps. Currently located on a cabin by the sea. Life is treating me well!

behind the scenes

Spent the whole day hanging and preparing my exhibition today, in the freaking heat (feels like I’m living in Greece at the moment. What’s up with this marvellous weather? Melting away as we speak). Would much rather spend the day swimming in the sea. But hey, am going to have my first solo exhibition – can’t complain can I?

Albeit some rather hot hours the result ended up quite pleasing. Really looking forward to the vernissage tomorrow. And, I´m truly excited to get some feedback on my current work!

Vernissage 24. juli kl. 16.00 på Kragerø Kunstskole / Orgelgalleriet
(Edv. Munchsvei 3, 3770 Kragerø). Åpent for alle!

Latest addition in the photographers-I-admire-folder is German fashion, architecture and still life photographer Lena Emery. Love how she manage two combine these three considerably different genres in what seems like the most natural way. Her photography style is surprising, minimalistic and has a sense of “grittiness” to it which makes the work more interesting. She has already clients like COS, Wallpaper, Harper’s Bazaar UK, I-D, Nike, The Gentlewoman etc. The list goes on. Check out her website for more images.

On Friday me and Maiken took the ferry to Skåtøy to attend a mini festival called `Skåtøy vise og poesifestival´ (folk song and poetry festival). After a sunny, pleasant trip we arrived on shore and further had a 20 minute walk in the woods before we finally hit the café/festival area. We met up some more friends (which I unfortunately forgot to photograph! Hah) and catched up while drinking rosé wine and eating fish soup, before the concerts started. The bands and singers this day were Lars Vaular, Hekla Stålstrenger and Lady Moscow – brilliant performances! Especially liked the performance by Lady Moscow, what an energy and enthusiasm. The rest of the evening was spent drinking wine, beer and chatting.
The whole concept of this festival is great and I must say the atmosphere was fantastic. Tasty food, lots of good drinks and the area was really nice decorated. Will definitely go next year as well.

Now I’m off on a boat trip along Kragerø´s stunning archipelago.

Have a good Sunday!

One of the perks of studying at an art and design campus is that you get to meet, collaborate and get to know other creative minds. One student which I got to meet now and then as we went to the same course was Vilde Rolfsen, who just graduated with a BA in Fine Art Photography in June.
I just have to show you this photo series called `Plastic Bag Landscapes´ shot by her, which she also exhibited at her degree show. Dreamy images of, very surprisingly, plastic bags she found on the streets of London. Isn’t it just fantastic?
I’m sure we will see more of this lady in the future.

Visit her website to see more of her work.
