My name is Benedicte and I live in Norway.
I've been photographing ever since my father gave me my first Analog SLR seventeen years ago. I photographed everything I found beautiful in some sort of way. I'm still attracted to the the beautiful and fascinating, no matter how simple or amazing.
I use photography as my main form of self-expression as I feel I can share so many sides of myself, and open up to a whole new world of people and ideas. This also gives me the opportunity to meet new friends since they will see my true self through my art.
The world can be cruel, cold, and lonely, and my aim is to capture all the beauty I experience and see, to invigorate and stir curiosity, and to enable everyone to be reminded that the world holds so much more than the emptiness we feel sometimes.
For a long while I've sorted by photography by theme (nature, portraits, etc), which is the most common way I suppose. However, I want to showcase my work by year because I feel it tells more of a story that way. Photography is such a huge part of my life it makes perfect sense to me. I hope you enjoy your visit. Please do not hesitate to contact me about anything.
