Thank you so much to those of you who swung by to visit my stand at The Other Art Fair. What a wonderful way to make new connections in the Norwegian community here in London.

The fair was a hectic few days, with a lot of visitors of all ages under the canopy at Kings Cross. I realised very quickly that my photographic work, with its unique approach to lighting, requires a lot of explaining!

Exhibiting at an art fair is a great way to gauge reactions from strangers, and I was touched by the many positive responses to my work. After all, that is what an artist wants – to affect people by stirring their emotions and imagination. It’s not something that can be calculated or planned for, one can only hope.
