On 5 December, former NJP photographer Eivind H. Natvig will be launching his book “Du Er Her No / You Are Here Now” in Oslo.
“Du Er Her No / You Are Here Now” is Eivind H. Natvig’s own view of his homeland. He portrays a Norway free of hackneyed clichés such as beautiful fjords and blonds. Instead, it is a country filled with darkness, humour, colours and wild contrasts. Natvig also worked on this project during his two-year stint with NJP.
“In 2007, I began taking photos of Norway, but they were not on commission and were not of commercial value. The photos did not even have a particular meaning. Instead, they were like a visual relief. These photographs were taken out of the joy of discovering Home, a country I had hardly visited. In 2011, the project got the upper hand and I spent 12 months on the road in self-imposed homelessness”, writes Natvig about his project.
On 5 December, Natvig will be coming to the Fritt Ord Foundation in Oslo at 5 p.m. for the launch of his book, which will be published by Tartaruga Press.
The book can be ordered from Tartaruga Press.
