THE ROAD BACK TO SILJUSTØL

Siljustøl in Bergen was my childhood vacation spot. Here my grandmother and grandfather lived, and it was here that my father grew up. The place contained music, nature, a house with infinitely many rooms, countless myths and stories and a large forest.

Because my grandfather Sæverud, was a famous composer, this place was made to a museum after his death in 1992 and therefore a public domain. This meant that I lost contact with the place and the childhood memories no longer felt like mine.

20 years later I decided to go back and photograph the mysterious, adventurous and slightly spooky atmosphere of Siljustøl, as I remembered it. This became “The Road Back to Siljustøl”

“I’ll See You Later I Guess”

“You can miss someone even if you look them straight in the eye.
I’ve learned a lot about hope, and love, although it can sometimes be difficult.
I have seen it all with new eyes, and understood everything.
“It’s all about understanding yourself and be confident.
I loose myself a lot.
I understand you now.
Why everything turned out the way it did.
It’s not painful to open the doors any longer.
When it all fly past,
on the inside of my eyelid,
It feels distant and unreal. I don’t have to long for you anymore. ”

The project adresses a relationship between two siblings, suffering from a kind of involuntary distance.

Benedikte Olsen(1991) was born and raised in Farsund, a small town at the south coast of Norway. She graduated from “Bilder Nordic School Of Photography” in summer of 2012. The project won a gold medal at Gullsnitt 2011 and will be exhibited at Fotografiens Hus in Oslo in October 2012.

“My life with SAAB”

“

As a boy i was fascinated by design, and by cars. Most intently by the brand SAAB, particularly since I come from a family that has been driving this brand for as long as I can remember. For my final project at Bilder Nordic School of Photography I chose to do a project about SAAB and the small Swedish city, Trollhättan, where all the cars are made. SAAB went bankrupt in December, 2011 and 3500 workers lost their jobs.  With my interest for light, architecture and people I chose to photograph a suffering but optimistic city. The final result became a book of 80 pages.

“My life with SAAB” was nominated to Nordic Dummy Awards 2012 by Forbundet Frie Fotografer. The project is still in progress.

Simen Øvergaard (1991) was born and raised in Oslo, and graduated from Bilder Nordic School of Photography in 2012 and now works as a freelance photographer, but mainly focuses on his own projects. His interests include graphic design and typography 
as well as modern Scandinavian and Russian architecture.
