This work for me is about challenging myself. It's about the relationship between the photographer and the model. It's about those few hours on set when you go from complete strangers to knowing every little thing about the other person. Growing up on a small island in Norway, where everyone already knows everyone, it was quite a big change for me to move to London. I've often heard people describe Norwegians as introverted and cold, but when you get to know them they're actually quite friendly and warm people. I find it terrifying photographing people that are strangers, so for me it's always been important to make a connection with the model and that for me is a challenge.
