lofoten islands


365 days between the mountains and the sea

I’ve always had an interest in the relationship between time and place in my photography, preferring to return to a few set of locations over and over vs. constantly looking for new destinations to visit. The initial idea for some sort of ́year on Lofoten ́ project goes back to the mid 2000’s as I began to travel to Lofoten more frequently and I had the idea of some sort of book following the seasons over the year. Perhaps it is no coincidence that my first photo guide about Lofoten published in 2015 is titled: Seasons On Lofoten – Winter. Yet, slowly the idea of a grand work covering the entire year was lost.

It wasn’t until the year of Corona that some sort of year long project entered my mind again. Now having lived four years on Lofoten, I thought I must be close to having photographed on every calendar day of the year. So in late summer 2020 I reviewed my Lofoten portfolio to find out how close I actually was.

This ebook is my first portfolio only publication – a collection of 365 images taken on each calendar day of the year. With images from July 2001 to July 2022, it is a journey back over the past 20 years of my travels, and then life, between Lofoten’s mountains and sea.
