Who would have thought that our humble meeting on the doorstep of a small wooden house in a park in Norway ten years ago would lead us around the world on a decade-long adventure, giving us over a hundred unforgettable meetings with incredible humans and landscapes?

But as we are all getting impatient, let’s kickstart the festivities pre-covid-style already next month in the name of a solo show at Galleri Dropsfabrikken in Trondheim, Norway opening May 8th! … 10-year anniversary exhibition coming up in May!

If you can safely journey into this glorious corner of the world, we strongly encourage you to do so. In the two weeks we toured these beautiful, windswept islands, we made lifelong friends, tasted some of the best gin and scotch around, stacked peat, tried our hand at mackerel fishing/ smoking and had some sheep named after us! … Outer Hebrides Calling!
