"I'm 57 years old and I live in Oslo, Norway.
I've always loved the outdoors, hiking, ice skating, cross-country skiing and cycling."

"I started out 10 years ago,
When I got my first DSLR I got pretty much hooked, photographing has since becoming a deep passion.

I photograph because I feel I have to, it´s an urge.
It´s kind of a visual hunt to find -something- that in some way or another gives me a creative fulfillment."

“I search for simplicity combined with something distinctive in the motif, environments which contains little visual noise.

“I try to have a consistent style in my photography, to express myself creatively.”

“To see is to forget the name of what you see.”
-Paul Valéry

"I'm a graphic designer that has always been into photography.
Originally from Sarajevo, Bosnia and Herzegovina, but currently based in Dubai."


"Traditional Balkan Witchcraft has intrigued me because it's an alternative approach to heritage, mysticism and history.
It also involves lots of fantasy, which is great to spark up creativity.
I've always had this idea of immortalizing people around me.
Loss and fear of being forgotten is what intrigues me to take portraits of the people around me.
That's why most of my models are my friends, people I care about or that I admire and respect."


"I wasted lots of film rolls when I was a little girl.
I've always been a fan of trying out everything.
Not only because of curiosity, but also because it keeps me on my feet and never bored.
Film and digital are both my choices, depends on the project and time, of course.
Film should be learned first, because it shows the roots and the basics of photography in a genuine way.
The most important part to me is the process, the transformation of a photo from the camera to post.
I also enjoy the reaction of my models when they see the final images... priceless."

"I genuinely think that inspiration is everywhere, but I also think that it comes first from within.
I'm always on a search for something “out there.”
I would like to travel to places that are far away and not often visited.
Those kind of places hide the most curious things."

"Get a really bad camera and go take photos!
The only way to get through the gap of your own work and the type of work you actually like,
is to produce more work."

"My art practice generally concerns the occult; rituals, worship, or just a sort of self constructed 
dogma that I use to inform and guide my work, and provide it with a backstory.
 I find the macabre to be the best inroad to creating something I'm pleased with."


"I love seeing how cameras render the light and texture in a scene.
I love slick, shiny production, I lose no interest knowing that the beauty is often a veneer with no substance. 
I want minimalism without sacrificing anything."



It's easier to see that your pictures have made an impact if someone tells you they're disgusting.”
