Nordic landscapes, undiscovered spots, deserted places, and wild nature are the main subjects of my photographs. I find tranquility in mountains, the ocean, fjords, national parks, lava fields, and in rough nature. In general, it comes naturally to me to immortalize these unusual forms in my work. By preserving these moments, I maintain the essence of what I experience in my surroundings and this is also my way of holding onto these special places.

She creates melancholic and dramatic photographs with traditional film cameras and expired 35mm film in pursuit of feelings of freedom and wanderlust.
