Part of a series "Daddy Issues" from 2014-15. Exhibited at Cyan Galleri in 2016. Part of a photo book. Limited edition of 20. Available also in 30x45, 70x100 and 100x120 The term Daddy Issues has been thrown into film and literature for several years and has been made as a kind of explanation for the challenges that one brings into adulthood; In relationships with people, their closest relationships, self-esteem, etc. The dynamics here are a mechanism reminiscent of what Freud called repetition compulsion, a need for the known, which is widely observed under the personal attempt of dealing with trauma and grief. Thus, began a kind of fictional narrative where I use archive images from my own childhood, as well as photographs I have collected during the years traveling, in the hometown of Fredrikstad or in Oslo. Together, these series constitute a work that is self-exploring and curious.
