LEVELD af Signe Luksengard

Nyeste fotobog i vores webshop er af den norske fotograf, Signe Fuglesteg Luksengard.

“My hometown is Leveld. 300 people live here. I grew up on a farm that was built by my great-great-grandfather and that has been passed on to the oldest son of the family for five generations. This inherits rule is in Norwegian called “Odel”.

It was seen as a duty to keep the farm alive for the next generation. For most people, it was a natural choice. Today girls can have the odel too. In my family that is me. And I’m the first to have a choice.

This is a project is about home, about one’s roots, and one’s identity. Everyday life, attachment, and detachment. About those who stayed, those who left, and those who moved back. And about a choice, I have to make all by myself.”

– Signe Fuglesteg Luksengard
